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…

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.

    Product Information

    Please note the Sovereign Turntable does not come with an arm.

    High End Quality
    Unrivalled Performance

    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

    Features

    Platter
    Better specified than decks lower in the Origin Live range, the Sovereign boasts improved decoupling of the main bearing and armboard. The previous MK3-2 version introduced a complex multilayer platter designed to dissipate energy in the most effective manner possible. This proved to be a huge upgrade and resulted in more outstanding comments from the press.

    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. It uses highly sophisticated circuitry and a top quality transformer.

    The Balanced Upgrade Transformer is included as standard, giving an uncanny sense of effortless and ease to musical performance. The Upgrade Transformer lowers noise floor but more importantly allows the motor to receive massive instantaneous current delivery. There is an increased sense of power, energy and dynamics.

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

    Superlative Styling
    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.

    High Quality Materials
    In the same way great singers have better voices, all materials resonate differently and have a “voice” in micro-vibration. This factor is often dismissed by theoreticians who prefer to work conceptually and short cut the laborious process of evaluating the sonic signature of different materials.

    Monitored Speed Accuracy
    Speed control is electronically switched between 33rpm and 45 rpm. A smooth powerfull motor drives the platter at constant speed with no measurable deviation from absolute speed. The remarkable speed accuracy is achieved using advanced speed control. This is not only accurate but avoids introducing the serious motor jitter prevalent in most turntables.
