Origin Live Silver MK3A Tonearm 

  • Standard length is 9.5". Other lengths are available at extra cost.

It's incredibly smooth, natural, organic and just cuts to the quick. I could go on for ever about its new levels of insight, its incredible liquidity, its amazing grip, its stunning low level detail and resolution, but i won't. Suffice to say that - on balance - this is probably the best tonearm in the world right now, and the price tag is laughably low. 




The Silver arm is now in MK3A form, having undergone significant upgrading since its introduction in 2002. When it was first launched the arm received widespread acclaim for outperforming high end, more expensive arms but at a fraction of the cost. 

The Silver possesses a superb blend of performance attributes which make it a truly great all round performer. it's inherent musicality allows it to excel in all aspects of music to produce great dynamics, natural tonal balance, transparency and a host of other virtues. Unlike a lot of other arms, this does not have any obvious weaknesses.



All critical components employ advanced alloys and innovative techniques. 

High grade aircraft alloy tube with special rear stub for improved counterweight rigidity. The sound produced is free from coloration allowing previously unheard low level information to be noticed clearly. This also enables the arm to exhibit a clean dynamic sound coupled with a tight powerful bass.

Well specified and high robust bearings. These bearings are housed in an advanced yoke which includes highly developed decoupling techniques. This results in an incredibly transparent arm with amazing tonal balance.

High grade internal Litz wire and upgrade external cable with high conductivity RCA plugs to fit into your amplification. 

Integrated VTA adjustment.

Easy to fit - The threaded base mounting makes the arm easy to fit to any armboard designed for Rega arms as it is a drop in replacement for ALL versions of Rega arm whether threaded base or 3 point mounting. There is also an Origin Live SME adapter which means the arm can be fitted to any armboard for SME arms.

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'!

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.
