Over the years I've owned the Planar 9, Planar25, 4 Planar 3s, and 2 Planar 2s. ALL have run fast. My current 3 has been upgraded to the new motor and it too ran fast. It cannot be pure chance. Roy Gandy must do it as part of his design. The easy fix is to file the pulley for accurate speed. The more elegant way is a VPI SDS.
Narrod-Sorry to correct you.I figured you had made a typo but some newbies might not know.
I think the Oracle delphi is a incredible deck.
I got a killer deal on mine from "Toys From The Attic" tfta.com 914-421-0069
This combo with the Alphason arm sold for close to $2400 in 1985'ish money.I added a Denon DL 103S NIB ($250) for $180 and its a sound to be taken very seriously.
If one shops around good deals are out there.
Mine came with a Cardas junction box on the back ($150 upgrade) for using your own I.C.s
My dealer thought it was a MKI, I sent the serial number into Oracle and it's in fact a II.
I wont tell you what I paid but here's a hint.<25% of the original retail.
Watch out for eBay for anyone looking to get a Oracle.They go for top buck there.
They arent that hard to set up either.All you need is the 'tool' and "I think" Oracle will give ya one if you dont have one.A bud gave me his 'tool' and Oracle sent him one.
The springs that come factoy installed are compatable with 90% of the arms out there.
Oracle decks are a classic and well worth looking in to.
