Origin Live Aurora MK4 Turntable
The Aurora Mk4 is an affordable evolution of the much more expensive high performance Sovereign deck. In fact the relatively low price bears no relation to the stunning performance that this deck is capable of .
The Aurora is acclaimed first and foremost because of it’s musicality. In spite of being lowest in the range, it inherits design features from our very high end decks, acclaimed among the best in the world regardless of price. Remarkably, it offers true high end performance, comfortably outperforming more expensive decks–even when fitted with inexpensive tonearms and cartridges.
Performance hallmarks are superb transparency, realistic timing, tangible soundstaging and accurate imaging. The Aurora’s inherent musicality and smooth tonal balance guarantee many years of listening pleasure.
The Aurora MK4 turntable follows in the steps of its award-winning predecessors, but with super accurate speed control and significantly increased performance
Aurora Specific Features
Every deck in the range shares important features which are outlined lower down on this page. Higher models in the range are differentiated by refinement, increasingly costly materials, components and advanced engineering.
High Grade Materials for Turntables & Tonearm
The nature of mechanical playback means that every material chosen plays a role in performance. Specifications and theory can only play a limited role here. If pure measurements were the answer, you could use a computer to judge the talent of singers on shows like the Voice or the X-factor. The problem is that any measurement system can only measure what it’s programmed to. Understanding the physics of what makes one voice more preferable to another would probably take more than a lifetime. For this reason we conduct hundreds of listening tests to determine the best choices.
Origin Live pay obsessive attention to the types of material used throughout the construction of turntables. This is one reason our Platter Mat (offered as an accessory) upgrades 99% of turntables on the market. The same is true for our turntable belts and oil, both of which receive remarkable reviews from satisfied clients. These may seem trivial examples but they indicate a fanatical thoroughness in research that extends to much more important areas in our turntables.
