Sovereign Turntable Performance
The Sovereign deck is a true high-end design. Extremely well specified, it looks and sounds fantastic – simply a near ultimate deck. The award-winning Sovereign Turntable is a favourite of many audio experts – and is owned by Hi-Fi magazine editors and reviewers alike
Resolution Turntable Performance
One of the highest performing turntables on the market regardless of price, the Resolution is radical not only in its performance but also in its fabulous appearance. This turntable has already featured in a number of style magazines due to its eye-catching finish and sheer good looks.
For out-and-out performance, this deck has all the attributes you could ask for. Strengths lie in superb transparency, timing, musicality, dynamics, and tangible soundstaging. Capable of outperforming much more expensive, respected decks, Calypso MK4 is not going to dissapoint you. Also, being neutral and system-friendly, it suits most applications very well.
The Aurora Mk4 is an affordable evolution of the much more expensive high performance Sovereign deck. In fact the relatively low price bears no relation to the stunning performance that this deck is capable of .
The Aurora is acclaimed first and foremost because of it’s musicality.

Origin Live’s Award Winning Sound
There are countless aspects which contribute to the award winning sound of our products but here are a few:
Specialists in Micro-Vibration
Origin Live have gone further than most Hi Fi Companies in the control and management of micro-vibration. Sound is air vibration forming complex wave shapes and patterns. To recreate these wave forms without degradation is challenging to say the least. You may hear talk of rigidity and damping but these things are just the tip of the iceburg. Our intense research into this area has resulted in highly developed and little known techniques which control vibration. This allows music to be delivered with absolute clarity, purity and transparency.
High Performance Materials
Origin Live are unswervingly conscientious in the selection of the very best materials necessary to recreate the drama and emotion of live music performances.
Strength and dimensional accuracy play an important role in the best Hi Fi equipment. To ensure the required quality, everything is manufactured in house. We measure and listen carefully to every detail of design to assess whether it plays music the way it should. The sound must have total realism, devoid of false artifacts that plague Hi Fi equipment.
Origin Live’s design and innovation enable music to be played with the authentic dynamics, speed, and tonal nuances of a live performance. Learn More
