Origin Live upgrade platter mat
"I've no hesitation in recommending it" HI-FI WORLD MAGAZINE
The most obvious benefit, immediately observable when you install the new mat is a MASSIVE increase in clarity and articulation, bass goes deeper, instrument separation improves and the whole sound becomes more true to life.
Not only this but the mat produces bass extension of maybe an extra octave. This new dimension of speed and air is not limited to the bass regions but extends right through the frequency range. The key words to summarise the differences this mat makes are - natural, dynamic and transparent.
In over 22 years Origin Live have experimented with countless platter mats varying from felt, fiberglass, cork, graphite, carbon fiber, acrylic, PVC, MDF, aluminium and steel laminates etc. This is to name but a few. Many of these mats yeild significant improvements, however they have found a new material that tops the lot by a large margin.
The benefit, immediately observable when you install the new mat is a significant increase in clarity and articulation, bass goes much deeper, instrument separation improves and the whole sound becomes more lifelike, organic and coherent.
The mat is only 1.0mm thick which is well within the ability of most tonearm height adjusters. The material mix from which it is manufactured must remain confidential. To enable the mat to work with all types of platters, an ingenious tweak is included.
The unique Origin Live "upgrade" mat acts as the critical interface between your vinyl records and turntable.
Experimentation with different mats are simple and quick. The sound differences are usually obvious , even if your deck does not have a mat.
Users find that the "upgrade" mat makes a far greater difference than most mats but more importantly it is a positive difference to every aspect of the music.
Bringing Music alive: - The new mat will greatly enhance your level of enjoyment due to the way it brings recordings alive. Music becomes far better integrated and more natural. In particular bass is solid and keeps time with the rest of the music - too often one hears slow bass that lacks attack, and has an overhang which muddies the rest of the music.
