Sovereign MK3-2 High End Turntable
"We can't recommend this Origin Live deck highly enough: it has the power to stop a herd of wildebeest with its authority - yet it can also bring a grown man to his knees in tears..." What Hi-Fi read more
"It’s one of those rare turntables that doubles as a time machine; you don’t just play an album, you are transported to where you were when you first heard that album. Records you know well suddenly sound like this is the first time you’ve heard them". Hi Fi+ Full Review
"I would recommend this turntable and arm without reservation to other music lovers looking for a turntable or arm upgrade. This will be my final turntable but one that I know I will be very happy with." John Kopec read more
"In essence, this is a high end turntable/arm combination that flies close to the ultimate in terms of performance level. I cannot (perhaps due to the limited time available for the test), detect any serious, medium or even small flaws. I'd like to discover more… to realise the true extent of its ability to provide musical pleasure. Meanwhile, the Sovereign sits at the pinnacle of current turntable production unless you pay crazy money. As for the arm, all I can say is, ‘superb and well done.’” Fedeltà del Suono" magazine Full Review
The award-winning Sovereign deck is a favourite of many audio experts – and is owned by hi-fi magazine editors and reviewers alike. Better specified than lesser decks in the Origin Live range, it boasts improved decoupling of the main bearing and armboard. The MK3-2 version introduces a complex multilayer platter designed to dissipate energy in the most effective manner possible.
The high mass plinth is of a special decoupling design, and the superior motor power supply improves the performance further still. The Balanced Upgrade Transformer is included as standard, giving a uncanny sense of effortless and ease to its musical performance.
Sovereign is hand-built in Britain to extremely high standards, making the user experience all the more special. Its unique styling is purposeful yet elegant.
Options include a 12 inch arm mount, or dual armboard which can be ordered using the option button below.
