"in the case of the Enterprise-C (12 inch) what notional sacrifices are made in extending the arm are more than balanced by the added accuracy across the whole album side. There is a ‘just cut’ fluidity and openness to the sound that makes it seem like albums you know through repeated plays are fresh from the stamper"

The culmination of all the expertise garnered through many years of research, Enterprise is the ultimate Origin Live tonearm, and one of the very best arms in the world yet made. Underneath its sleek, unprepossessing exterior lies a wealth of high technology which elevates its performance to hitherto undreamed of levels.
Hearing an Enterprise is an unforgettable event. Breathtakingly realistic, it simply lets the music flow out to the listener in an unmediated way. Although it deserves the very best turntables and cartridges that money can buy, it unlocks huge performance gains from lesser ones and makes mediocre recordings positively sing. From its massively powerful and highly tuneful bass, to a treble that is gorgeously silky yet amazingly spacious, it’s a sublime performer. The mineral clarity of the midband is uncanny, and the sound staging profound. Prospective purchasers of a high end tonearm owe it to themselves to audition this seminal design.
