Origin Live Silver MK4 Tonearm 

  • Standard length is 9.5". Other lengths are available at extra cost.
When launched in 2002, the Silver Tonearm received widespread acclaim for outperforming high-end arms at a fraction of the cost. Hailed by the editor of Hi-Fi World as the best arm he’d ever heard, the Silver set the benchmark for our cost-effective designs that overtook both the SME and Ekos arms in performance.
 
The Silver Tonearm has a wide range of strengths which make it a great all-rounder. Highly musical, it tracks dynamics accurately and gets right into the groove of the music. You will expect to hear improved speed, dynamics and separation in the music over the Onyx due to its sophisticated tonearm tube design. The Silver also includes a higher grade external cable which improves bass weight in comparison to the Onyx. It has a natural tonal balance with excellent transparency and fine performance at both frequency extremes.
 
“This is probably the best tonearm in the world right now, and the price tag is laughably low. If Mark Baker put this in a fancy box and hired a flashy PR, he could probably charge five times this amount.”

Early Days but Great Beginnings!

Only used the arm for a few hours and I believe it takes 100 hours or so for the wiring to really burn in fully, but already the sound is opening up and becoming more natural and musical. Miles better than the outgoing RB300 which wasn't at all a bad arm, but this is in a completely different league. Looking forward to further gains as playtime extends!

Beautiful

A sublime arm from OL. Beautifully engineered, beautiful aesthetically and a beautiful sound emanates from the Silver MK3. It simply does what an arm is supposed to do with no fuss. Paired with a good cartridge, the Silver MK3 just digs up all the nuances and inflections in a varied catalogue of music. I am hearing things from records I know intimately, for the first time. Another winner from Mark Baker.

Fantastic 'downgrade'!
Monday, 18 April 2016  | 

Well, 'downgrade' in terms of price.
The OL Silver has replaced a reputable brand tonearm that costed me 2 times the price.
After almost three (lost) years I'm enjoying the music again out of my vinyl collection.
Easily mounting and setup. No fuss to put my cartridge (line contact) singing just to my pleasure!
Thanks to Origin Live excellent webpage and some users opinions, I decided by this tonearm.
