The CD2000 MkIII CD transport

Oracle analogue and digital products have always been designed and built as “musical instruments” that can stand the test of time. It is our belief that achieving simplicity in design is a combination of knowledge and common sense. A properly designed device creates its own form; one that reflects the beauty of its function. True artistry combines these elements by means of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

Many of the problems that affect the accurate reproduction of recorded music derive from unwanted internal or external vibration. To address this issue the CD2000 MkIII uses a massive aluminum floating chassis and a Delrin decoupling system of the cd drive. Furthermore, our unique suspension and disc clamping systems originally used in our analog turntables, have been adapted for use in our “State of the Art” CD Players.

The CD2000 MkIII had the power supply stage totally redesigned. There is better realism, more dynamics and we are closer to a true analog-like sound than ever!
