Resolution Turntable MK3-2

"In fact, this arm-table combination is one of the finest performers I've heard at any price… But regardless of price, this is one of the truly special products I've reviewed in the past eighteen years." Michael Fremer, Editor, Stereophile  Full Review

"What I heard was one of the best British decks around. Don't let your vinyl miss out on this gem…” Alan Sircom, Editor, Hi Fi+  (Product 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 (Most Wanted Component of the Year Award)  Full Review

Combining superb sound quality and aesthetic elegance, the Resolution MK3-2 turntable is designed to recreate the original musical performance in its entirety – with excellent dynamics, transient speed, definition and tonal accuracy. A true high definition instrument, Resolution stands high above its price rivals with a performance that reminds you why vinyl is held in such high esteem. Every aspect of its audio performance is extremely strong, making for an unerringly enjoyable listening experience. Experienced High End dealers rate the performance of the Sovereign 3.2 (introduced in July 2016) above decks in excess of 100K.

resolution-pod-side-illustrious-500Thanks to extensive research into turntable design, great care has been taken to decouple the main bearing and armboard from their surroundings, and Resolution also sports a number of other detail upgrades including a superior drive motor. The result is an attractive turntable that offers genuine high end performance at a still relatively affordable price.

Options include a 12 inch arm mount, or dual armboard which can be ordered using the option button below.

Resolution Turntable MK3-1

Availability: Available

Price: £0.00

Quick Overview

Arm Mount
The deck includes an arm mounting to fit all Origin Live 240mm (9.5") tonearms. For full details on other arms that will fit, see 'What arms fit'.  A mounting option to fit 12" arms is also available, but this is an either/or choice, rather than an addition. Customers can change over to the 12" option at a later date, but there’s a considerable saving if you order it with the deck.

Superb Styling
The Resolution's unmistakable profile and black polished finish makes it an eye catching asset for any decor.

High Grade Parts
- Origin Live’s most highly toleranced bearing for the lowest possible friction
- Massive, high inertia armboard resists rotational and vertical modes of vibration
- High specification subchassis gives improved main bearing decoupling
- Top specification power supply (excluding the Upgrade Transformer which may be added as an option)

Power Supply
Resolution features a load-compensating regulated power supply which is stable across a wide range of operating temperatures. Speed control is easily switched electronically between 33 and 45rpm.

Setting Up
Thanks to its unique design, there’s nothing to go out-of-tune. A non-suspended design, it is simple to set up for years of fuss-free performance. VTA arm adjustment is convenient, with open access to the underside of the armboard.

450mm wide, 380mm deep, 150mm high

  1. Magical Review by Kenneth

    Arrived, assembled, working... rather magical even with only the Trichord Dino so look forward to the Whest unit! I have a full dCS Scarlatti system with Berning amps and Tannoy Kingdom royal speakers. I particularly like solo piano such as Keith Jarrett. I set one of his older albums up both on vinyl and CD through the dCS running exactly in parallel. The vinyl version must be 25 years old and far from 'silent', lots of minor scratches. It still sounded better. The bass notes in particular had an extraordinary realism. As it happens I also have a Steinway piano. Elsewhere in the house it would be simply impossible to tell if it was the hifi playing or the real piano... except that I can't play like Keith Jarrett!!

  2. Very impressed Review by Barrie

    the deck is up and running and i am very impressed with it !
    I was using a Voyd Valdi fitted with 2 of your DC motors,OL silver and Dynavetor DV20x.
    I fitted the arm and cartridge on to the Resolution and it completely blew the Voyd out of the water!!

    So a big thank you to you both for all your help in the purchase of the Resolution.

    Kindest regards, Barrie
