ORIGIN LIVE RESOLUTION Mk4
PLEASE NOTE: We import OL Turntables in to order, as everyone wants something different we cannot keep a “standard” table in stock to suit all needs! Made to order means you get the latest version with latest updates and any options you might want in the one ready to go package.
“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.” Read the full review >

“OK, so I think this record player is something rather special …..We have had a handful of products come into Hifi Pig towers in the last year that have really blown us away with what they bring to the party and the way our system has evolved as a result has taken it to what I consider to be a truly world class system. One of these products is of course this turntable and arm combination, and whilst there are much more expensive packages out there I can’t see me feeling the urge to upgrade any time soon, though I probably see a top of the range tonearm from Origin Live in my Hifi life in the future.

“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.” Read the full review >
Sonically, the Resolution/Illustrious offers comparable precision and focus to the big, heavy-go-round behemoths out there. But being lighter and less heavily damped, it reproduces music with superior fluidity and flow, plus greater subtlety and finer tonal gradations than many I have heard. Indeed at its best, it hardly sounds like a turntable at all. Instead, you get the impression you’re listening to a master tape, such is its effortless poise and precision. Read the full review >

One of the highest performing turntables on the market regardless of price, the Resolution is radical not only in its performance but also in its fabulous appearance. This turntable has already featured in a number of style magazines due to its eye-catching finish and sheer good looks. Combining superb sound quality and aesthetic elegance, the Resolution MK4 turntable is designed to recreate the original musical performance in its entirety – 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. The Resolution with multi-layer platter option comes very close to Sovereign performance – it’s that good.

The result is an attractive turntable that offers genuine high end performance at a still relatively affordable price.
The Resolution’s unmistakable profile and black polished finish makes it an eye catching asset for any decor.
