FrontRunners: Smooth Operator

While the Oracle Audio Technologies CD 2500 Mk II Player (www.oracle-audio.com) may resemble a spaceship from a 1950s science fiction film, it transports music, not aliens. The compact disc player’s four-legged design helps shield it from vibration, smoothing the sometimes harsh digital sound of CDs. Nylon and urethane absorbers are used throughout the player to further damp outside disturbances. The $9,400 unit may not be able to filter out the effects of an earthquake, but it should prevent, say, the vibrations of a powerful refrigerator from contaminating your music.
