Turntable Record Weight Reviews
“The Turntable Record Weight by Origin Live is a must for every turntable. We have all seen record weights before, but not like this one…” Read the full review >
Tony Sharman (Reviewer for Hi-Fi Magazines)
“To sum it up, I would say that the Gravity allows the air around vocals and instruments to illuminate the musician’s skills, and as an added bonus it digs the depths of bass allowing the listener to hear the character of both the instrument and player.
“It’s a big thumbs up on the record weight! There’s certainly no smoke and mirrors, it just does what it says on the tin, you always deliver on your promises at Origin Live.” Read More Owner Comments >
“…your record clamp works well and I’ve used/heard many, this one improves all aspects the others masked/muddled some area of the vinyl and I stopped using them till now.” Read More Owner Comments >
At last a Turntable Record Weight which works as it should
The Gravity One Record weight serves to remove harmful vibration from the record and thus significantly improve your sound quality.
Most clamps flatten records successfully but have very mixed results on sound quality. As a generalization, most tend to enhance create pump up the bass whilst dulling down the upper mid-band. There is also a perceived softening of dynamics (even in the bass), a slowing down of the sound and the decay of notes suffers.
For 25 years or so we’ve tested turntable record weight designs (both ours and 3rd parties) and never come across a weight or clamp which enhanced sound quality. Then one year we were sharing a room at the Indulgence show with the importer of the Shun Mook record weight. To my astonishment this actually worked and enhanced everything in the music with no downside. The only problem was that it cost £2000.
This experience got us thinking and after some interesting design experiences with previously untested materials we though it worth trying again.
What it sounds like
The result is a turntable record weight which makes a significant contribution to improving bass definition, weight and depth but it also enhances the mid-band and treble through better separation, transparency and decay of notes. This is where most other clamps cause degradation but the Origin Live clamp excels.
We are so pleased with the results that we now offer this as an upgrade for all other decks. As with so many of our products this carries a guarantee of satisfaction or your money back. If you wish to hear what a well designed turntable record weight can do for your sound quality please place an order. Should you be anything other than delighted with the results just return the clamp for a full refund.
My deck will be different to the one you tested the clamp on so there is there any guarantee of improvement?
This a valid concern, however a record clamp is primarily in contact with the record rather than your deck. Although the deck will affect the vibration of the record, the effect of exerting control from the topside of the record is different. To test this point we tried the clamp on:
- Solid platters
- Platters topped with felt mats
- Suspended decks
- Non suspended decks
In all cases the improvements of the record weight were the same as listed above.
The record weight is actually a very low mass of around 70 grams and will not upset suspended turntables.
