ORIGIN LIVE Aurora MKV
The Aurora is acclaimed first and foremost because of its musicality. In spite of being lowest in the range, it inherits design features from our very high end decks, acclaimed among the best in the world regardless of price. Remarkably, it offers true high end performance, comfortably outperforming more expensive decks–even when fitted with inexpensive tonearms and cartridges.
Light Speed Controller
The MK 4 introduces the Light Speed Controller (LSC) on all decks with its rock-steady speed and improved sonic performance. Using a light shone onto the platter, our motors automatically maintain their speed to the highest level of accuracy, avoiding common problems like speed drift, motor jitter and cogging.
These high-grade Swiss motors demonstrate the powerful, smooth-running needed in a good turntable motor. Ironless cores eliminate eddy currents which result in low “clogging”, low vibration and speed stability. Motors are decoupled to minimize vibration and reduce audible noise.
The belt is manufactured in house using special material which increases grip and reduces stretch under instantaneous loading, using a unique material which dramatically improves on widely used neoprene rubber – benefits include increased dynamics and deeper bass performance.
High Specification Power Supply
Carefully selected cables from premium suppliers are attached to motor circuitry that is designed to ensure the motor, the platter and your vinyl are running smoothly on a consistent power supply.
A well researched special plastic pulley enables maximum belt grip, resulting in increased definition and dynamics over.
Our standard armboard provides premium performance for the price point. Decoupled from the rest of the turntable, the armboard is balanced in equilibrium with the platter and bearing house.
Ultra-low Friction Bearing
Made in house, the new MK4 bearing has ultra low levels of vibration. The spindle rotates on a Tungsten carbide ball bearing centered on a hardened thrust pad for low friction and long life. Low bearing friction is essential to avoid vibration. Unlike decks which “float” the platter using air or magnetic bearings, we believe “earthing” the energy out of the platter is essential for sound purity.
High Specification Sub-Chassis
The sub-chassis plate balances the armboard with the platter and bearing house, decoupling both from the turntable plinth. Its mass heavy design also helps to effectively damp vibration travelling through the armboard and platter.
Our unique suspension avoids both the softening of leading edges often found in suspended designs and the hardness in many non-suspended designs.
The results are:
- Superior pitch, rhythm, and timing
- Rock-solid imaging
- Reduced colouration
- Refined presentation of low-level information
- Easy to follow separation in the music and vocals
