Origin Live Resolution MK5 Turntable
The Resolution is one of the highest performing turntables on the market, producing a sound way above its price rivals, with a performance that shows you why vinyl is held in such high esteem. The Resolution MK4 turntable is designed to recreate the original musical performance in its entirety – excellent dynamics, transient speed, definition, and tonal accuracy. Every aspect of its audio performance is strong, making for an unerringly enjoyable listening experience.
Mk5 Motor Power Supply
The Mk5 Motor Power Supply introduces a new PCB in the PSU on all decks offering even more speed stability and improved sonic performance than the former Light Speed Controller. Common problems like speed drift, motor jitter and cogging are avoided. Speed settings for 33.33 and 45 RPM are operated through one knob with no need for belt/platter change.
The Swiss DC200 motor is smoother, quieter and double the power (Torque) of the Aurora’s DC100. Dynamics and resolution improve across all frequencies, in particular you can hear more power in the sound as the bass gains in slam, depth and resolution. Ironless cores eliminate eddy currents which result in low “cogging”, low vibration and speed stability. The motor pod is decoupled from the plinth to minimize vibration and reduce audible noise.
The belt is manufactured in house using special material which increases grip and reduces stretch under instantaneous loading, using a unique material which dramatically improves on widely used neoprene rubber – benefits include increased dynamics and deeper bass performance.
High Specification Power Supply
Carefully selected cables from premium suppliers are attached to motor circuitry that is designed to ensure the motor, the platter and your vinyl are running smoothly on a consistent power supply. (excluding the Upgrade Transformer which may be added as an option)
A well researched special plastic pulley that enables maximum belt grip, resulting in increased definition and dynamics. The Pulley used on the Resolution is produced to higher tolerances than that on the Aurora and Calypso.
Ultra-low Friction Bearing
Made in house, the new MK4 bearing has ultra low levels of vibration. The spindle rotates on a tungsten carbide ball bearing centred on a hardened thrust pad for low friction and long life. Low bearing friction is essential to avoid vibration. Unlike decks which “float” the platter using air or magnetic bearings, we believe “earthing” the energy out of the platter is essential for sound purity.
High-Performance Arm Board
The high-performance arm board is double the thickness of the standard arm board, but also features a weighty steel insert for the tonearm attachment. the added thickness, insert and mass help to minimize any unwanted vibration traveling through the tonearm Decoupled from the turntable plinth, the arm board is balanced in equilibrium with the platter and bearing house.
The Resolution’s circular forms evoke curving mid-century designs. The unmistakable profile and black polished finish make it an eye-catching asset for any décor.
Our unique suspension avoids both the softening of leading edges often found in suspended designs and the hardness in many non-suspended designs. The results are:
- Superior pitch, rhythm, and timing
- Rock-solid imaging
- Reduced colouration
- Refined presentation of low-level information
- Easy to follow separation in the music and vocals
Heavy Inertia Disc
Pictured here beneath the arm board and platter, this stainless steel disc adds a large mass to the plinth, greatly reducing resonance. Placed at the point of its connection to the sub-chassis, this weighs down the plinth, effectively reducing vertical modes of vibration traveling across the plinth and into the sub-chassis. This minimizes any vibration that could travel into the platter or arm board to disturb your vinyl.
Front Loading Inertia Discs x 4
As well as the heavy inertia disc, these smaller inertia discs are positioned at the extremities of the plinth, where the plinth may be susceptible to vibration. The small inertia discs resist rotational forces arising from ground and airborne vibration. This maintains the plinths equilibrium and in turn the equilibrium of the whole turntable.
High Specification Sub-Chassis
The sub-chassis plate balances the armboard with the platter and bearing house, decoupling both from the turntable plinth. Its mass heavy design also helps to effectively damp vibration travelling through the armboard and platter.
