I have an Oracle mark I and a Roksan Xerxes. The Oracle is fitted with an RB300 and a MC20 supreme and is in need of a new belt. Xerxes has an RB300 and an Audio Technica OC7. Comparing them side by side, the Xerxes sounds fantastic, with great attack and rythmn. The Oracle sounds laid back (no PRAT) and has bloomy bass. It was about to go on Ebay, but......... It has been suggested that the Oracle just needs a service kit (oracle provide everything from springs, damping rubbers, oil and belt for £150) to better the Xerxes. That sort of money is not a lot to spend, but I would rather not waste the it. To compound the issue I have an Origin Live Encounter tone arm on its way and will probably be spending some cash on a new cartridge (possibly a Cartridge man music maker ). Im using a Naim 72/140 with Neat Critique speakers and listen to everything from Nirvana to Ella but rarely classical music. Should I sell the Oracle? Upgrade the Oracle and sell the Xerxes ? Your comments would be very much appreciated.
