Origin Live Aurora MKIII Turntable
The Aurora MK3 turntable follows in the steps of it's award winning predecessors but with improved looks and significantly increased performance. Remarkably, it offers true high end performance at an extraordinarily low price point, comfortably outperforming many expensive decks, even when fitted with inexpensive tone arms and cartridges. Performance hallmarks are superb transparency, coherent timing, tangible sound staging and imaging. The Aurora's inherent musicality and system friendly tonal balance guarantees many years of listening pleasure. Arm Mount The deck includes an arm mounting to fit all Origin Live 240mm (9.5") arms. For full details on other arms that will fit please see link "What arms fit ". A mounting option to fit 12" arms is also available in the order options, but this is not in addition - it is an "either" "or" choice. You can change over to a 12" option at a later date but there is a considerable saving if you order it with the deck in the first place What Hifi Review A stellar performer with wonderfully realistic presentation.....Enticing looks and celestial sounds...Superb attack, rigid bass, excellent dynamics, all of which means continually engrossing performances and edge-of-the-seat listening!"...."It looks like a star and sounds like heaven - a class leader in every respect. TNT Audio Review The good news is the Aurora does not require a $3000 cartridge to sound great. Coupled with the OL Silver MK IIIA tone arm and a budget cartridge I could be happy to live with it long term. It offers true high end sound at a reasonable price and has the ability to transport the recorded performance into your listening. I cannot part with it, so I purchased the review sample. Hifi Choice Review It's very hard to think what else you could ask of this ..... Its build is excellent at the price, its sonic performance is simply superb, and there's certainly nothing wrong its looks either. Raleigh Hifi Review We had the Aurora playing over the weekend in store and everyone was extremely impressed with the sound it was producing for the cost – I have to say it is amazing value and puts certain other brands to shame at twice the cost.
Oil Filled platter bearing with hardened ball bearing running on hardened thrust pad for low friction and long life Special low drag oil with high strength viscous layer - Lower friction means decreased vibration and faster speed recovery under dynamic loads imposed by demanding musical passages. Flat anti-static belt manufactured in house using special material that increases grip and reduces stretch under instantaneous loading - increased dynamics and deeper bass performance are most noticable benelfits. Low vibration DC Motor with highly regulated supply - Ensures smooth drive with minimal colouration. Non metalic, special plastic pulley enables maximum belt grip, resulting in increased definition and dynamics. Adjustable Feet for easy leveling Single point cantilever suspension of the sub-chassis - unique, in being neither solid nor suspended - This avoids the softing of leading edges observed in many suspended designs and also avoids the hardness noticed in many non-suspended designs
