“The best turntable ever tested in the 25 years of the magazine”Read More – Full Review >

AV Audio (High End Magazine, Brazil)

“One of the best turntables in the world…the sound is stunning. An incredible design with amazing insight in sonic terms.”

Long Live Vinyl Magazine

“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.” Read More – Full Review >

“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…” Read More – Full Review >

What Hi-Fi

“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.” Read More – Owner Comment >

John Kopec

“In essence, this is a high end turntable and 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’.” Read More – Full Review >

Fedeltà del Suono

The Sovereign deck is a true high-end design. Extremely well specified, it looks and sounds fantastic – simply a near ultimate deck. The award-winning Sovereign Turntable is a favourite of many audio experts – and is owned by Hi-Fi magazine editors and reviewers alike

Sovereign MK4 Features

The “Sovereign Special” Platter

The Sovereign Special differs from the Sovereign MK4 by virtue of its remarkably upgraded multi-layer platter. As a rule, the closer a part is to the cartridge the more it affects the performance. You can’t get much closer to the cartridge than the platter and this is where a lot of the magic happens in the highest performing decks. This particular version of the Multilayer platter features some of the key components present in the top of the range Voyager turntables. The result is a huge increase in detail, dynamics and clarity. Music comes alive in a way rarely heard even among the highest end decks. This version of the Sovereign is a highly worthwhile acquisition over the standard Sovereign.

Plinth

The plinth is high mass and uses systematic decoupling design throughout.

Drive System

Sovereign’s load-compensating power supply is the culmination of work carried out over decades, and is designed to feed clean power to the motor across a wide range of temperatures.

Sovereign is hand-built in Britain to extremely high standards.

Superlative Style

Sovereign is a visually arresting turntable. Its unique styling is purposeful yet elegant, beautifully hand finished with a polished black plinth and chrome suspension pods and accenting.

High Grade Parts

High mass plinth using low resonance sandwich construction increases bass performance and overall definition

Triple plinth decoupling helps isolate the deck from its surroundings

Low resonance, high inertia platter is deeper than lower range models

Platter decoupled from the bearing with an acoustically inert sub-platter

Origin Live’s most highly toleranced bearing for the lowest possible friction

Ultra rigid sub-chassis with unique centre point support and damping devices

Specially damped, high mass motor housing

Special high grade oil

Setting up

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