"The Resolution Mk3 and Illustrious tonearm produce the kind of sonics that make you want to keep listening record after record... it works brilliantly, is well built and the price is right. I hope you get my drift: this is one of the truly special products I've reviewed over the past 27 years, regardless of price."  - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet (read the review)

Product of the Year Award "The new Resolution MK2 is one of the quietest turntables I have yet heard...now comes part assembled and is much easier to set up than many suspended types. The Resolution MK2 and Encounter MK3 are superbly designed and built, and proved a pleasure to use...The result then was breathtaking power and passion, without the need to turn up the volume particularly high... It was thumbs aloft then for the latest Origin Live Resolution and Encounter tonearm."  - Hi-Fi World

Most Wanted Compenent of the Year Award "Improved harmonics and tonality were obvious almost right out of the gate. The ambience that filled my dining room caused an immediate stir of emotions… the enhanced tonal shadings produced by this combo made me sit up and pay close attention immediately. The pace, rhythm and timing (PRaT) were stunningly present… You could have knocked me over with a feather."  - Clement Perry, Editor, Stereo Times (read the review)




Origin Live Resolution MK3-1 Turntable

Origin Live has always made great sounding analog gear that cost far less than it's performance would warrant. True, they aren't made like a German tank (heck, only a one or two UK companies do that) but everyone who hears them is more than impressed finding them impossible to beat for the money. In recent years they've become very simple to set up, super reliable and play forever with no fuss. If you want a warm mushy sound, this isn't for you. If you want a hyper analytical sound, this isn't for you. If you want as much energy, clarity and emotional impact as possible combined with musical depth and warmth in your listening room than Origin Live is the table you need to be hearing.

The elegant Origin Live Resolution MK3-1 Turntable is designed for music lovers who wish to enjoy their records to the fullest with near perfection at less than perfection pricing. The Resolution brings your vinyl replay close enough to the ultimate to satisfy virtually any music lover. The recreation of an original musical performance involves many factors: High priorities are dynamics, tonal accuracy, transient speed, sound-staging and definition. Dynamics and tonal accuracy are especially important for realism. The ability of the Resolution to handle every one of these factors separates this turntable from most others. Powerful dynamics, superb transparency and tangible sound staging will keep you listening to your record collection for many years to come. The deck's natural, musical presentation makes it compatible with almost any hi-fi system.

Now in New, Improved MK3.1 version!  Improvements over original MK3 version: - A costly new motor upgrade which has significantly improved performance. The new motor increases drive torque two to four times that of previous motors. The sound improvement of this motor upgrade is dramatic with more punch, increased pace, dynamics and slam in the bass. Because the new motors are even smoother running you get a blacker background, greater resolution, and better tonality. - The turntable power supply has also been improved to include temperature compensation so speed is now hardly affected by room temperature changes. Allied to this is an increase in load compensation. - The upgrade transformer (optional) has also been dramatically improved using a fully balanced, noise reducing configuration, allied with a purpose built design to improve mains isolation. Marked improvements to all aspects of sound quality are immediately apparent when comparing this with the original transformer.


MK3-1 tables: Origin Live has introduced a number of major improvements in the MK3 and Mk3-1 range of turntables dramatically improving on their design of award winning products. The new decks represent a significant increase in performance and value to an already superb sound. Technical enhancements over previous MK2 models are: •New type of Acrylic platter material with reduced internal stresses. •Increased thickness of platter due to changes in overall design. •New Bearing hub designed for faster energy transmission. •Lower friction bearing. •Increased size of plinth for improved aesthetics and stability. •Improved power supply. •New belt Material now hand made delivers better sound. •Quieter motor from additional pod damping. The result is music reproduction with particular improvements in: •Rock solid imaging. •Reduced colouration. •Refined presentation of low level information. •More refined separation of individual insturments and vocals.  


  • Extremely high-grade bearing, precision bored, honed and polished.  The bearing rotates in a pure film of special oil with no surface to surface contact other than the load bearing tip. The load bearing tip acts as a single energy transmission point, essential for sound purity.
  • Platter material is a specially formulated acrylic .
  • Origin tables are non-suspended yet the entire sub-chassis rest on a single point for superb isolation from vibration.
  • A large motor pod imparts great stability to the high-grade DC 300 motor and results in a higher torque on the platter - increase of approx. 2 - 4 times what is was previously.
  • Larger diameter motor pod eliminates groundborne vibration effects on motor.
  • Heavy inertia disc for mounting the sub-chassis reduces vertical modes of vibration. Inertia disc pods resist rotational forces due to ground bourn and air bourn vibration. 
  • "Ultra" load compensating motor regulation circuit incorporates higher grade components and improved stability. Speed control is easily switched electronically between 33 and 45 rpm (78 rpm is also available on request) and pitch adjustable.
  • There is nothing to go "out of tune" on the Calypso turntable and setup is a snap. The turntable is non-suspended and the centre loading makes it simple to set up and fuss free.
  • The Resolution can accommodate most arms by simply changing the sub chassis plate. Subchassis plates are available for SME, Linn, Graham, Hadcock arms - All Roksan arms can be fitted using an adaptor. Also available in a dual armboard version.


  • Dimensions: 19" width, 16" depth, 6" height.
  • Weight: 30lbs
  • Ultra Power Controller
  • DC 200 Motor
  • 3 year warranty


Upgrade transformer - Simple and significant performance enhancement easy to do at any time!

Flexible arm fitting - The Origin Live Resolution MK3 Turntable can readily accomodate most arms such as SME, Linn, Graham and more and is available with a dual armboard for an extra charge.
