Origin Live upgrade platter mat

Diameter 296mm

"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.

295mm diameter.

worth every penny

I was not expecting much improvement with the mat as i have bought and tested many in the past so i settled down one evening for a listening session . To say i was gob smacked was an understatement . The bass was more powerful and cleaner the midrange was sweeter and the treble , i could hear more detail what i had never heard before . This mat is the best upgrade i have ever bought and worth every penny .

Excellent mat

Bought this for my rega turntables (planar 3 set up for mono, and planar 8).
Works well - no static issues and seems to have improved soundstage and overall resolution. Tried it both on its own and on top of rega felt mat...still deciding!
Also useful for fine tuning vta (if you think 1mm makes any difference ) between standard and 180/200gm records.

Die Matte macht das was sie machen soll. Resonazen eleminieren.Der Klang an meinem Transrotor bleibt authentisch und bleibt im Sound neutral.Keine Bassüberhöhung oder dergleichen.4 Sterne weil der Klangunterschied zum Original ohne Matte eher gering ausfällt .Aber trotzdem von mir eine klare Empfehlung .
--------------------

The mat does what it should do. Eliminate Resonazen.Der sound on my Transrotor remains authentic and remains neutral in the sound.No Bassüberhöhung or the like.4 stars because the sound difference to the original without mat rather low fails.But anyway from me a clear recommendation.

Inastant tighter bass
Thursday, 1 October 2015  | 

This mat requires attention to the tonearm height (VTA) as it is quite thin. However, it seems to tighten the bass without having any impacts on the other frequencies, which is a desired effect. Separation improved with it.
