I am selling my Origin Live Resolution Mk 1 table because I upgraded to an Origin Live Sovereign turntable. I am the original owner. I bought the table from Jay at Audio Revelation. I also bought the upgraded PSU (transformer) and the Ultra Controller. I bought the controller in December 2008 and I cannot recall when I bought the upgraded PSU. The Ultra controller and upgraded PSU represent an extra $1000 in value. The table is the version without the spoked platter, so it came from Origin Live with the D200 motor. I have not replaced the belt because it has worked perfectly from the beginning.
The table is in very good cosmetic and functional condition and looks stunning in person. There is one small pinhole chip where the bearing sits down inside a hole in the plinth. There is also one small impact dent where the finish is cracked near the edge of the hole where the motor pod sits through the plinth. Both of these small blemishes are not visible when the table is assembled. I have cleaned the bearing housing and I will include some oil so you can start out fresh.
I personally think the Mk 1 looks much better than the current Mk 2 version. With the upgrades it can more than holds its own with any table close to my asking price. Just the Ultra upgrades (PSU, controller, D200 motor) are $1200 so this is a very good deal.
I can ship at the buyer's expense or you can make a day trip to the Monterey Peninsula and go home with an awesome table. I am also willing to deliver within a reasonable distance in the Bay Area.
The table does not include the tonearm or Rosinante stand shown in the pictures. I am asking $1200 plus actual shipping charges to your zip code. This table retailed for $4000 with the upgrades at the time of purchase.
The arm mount has a collar and scrub screw so you can use any Rega 300 style arm that has a single tube (not the 3 point mounting system). This makes the setting of VTA on-the-fly very easy by sliding the arm up or down and tightening the scrub screw so the collar holds the arm in place. I have personally used an Origin Live Encounter Mk 2, Origin Live Illustrious Mk 2 and Origin Live Conqueror Mk 2 arm on the table with great results.
3/17/12 - Price reduced to $1,100. This is an absolute steal at this price.
