Origin Live Silver Mk4 Tonearm. . “This is probably the best tonearm in the world right now, and the price tag is laughably low. If Mark Baker put this in a fancy box and hired a flashy PR, he could probably charge five times this amount.”
When first launched back in 2002 the Silver recieved widespread acclaim for outperforming high-end arms at a fraction of the cost. Hailed by the editor of Hi-Fi World as the best arm he’d ever heard (and he’d heard many many arms). The Silver set the benchmark for our cost effective designs that overtook both the SME and Ekos arms in performance. Since then the Silver tonearm has undergone significant upgrading as we have gradually brought all of our production in house ans developed our technologies.
Silver has a wide range of strengths which make it a great all-rounder. Highly musical, it tracks dynamics accurately and gets right into the groove of the music. You will expect to hear improved speed, dynamics and seperation in the music over the Onyx due to it’s sophisticated tonearm tube design. The Silver also includes higher grade external cable which improves bass weight in comparison to the Onyx. It has a natural tonal balance with excellent transparency and fine performance at both frequency extremes.
All critical items employ advanced alloys and innovative techniques:
Single-piece aircraft alloy tube with special stub for improved counterweight rigidity
Robust, highly specified bearings, housed in an advanced decoupled yoke
High grade Internal Litz wiring with upgrade external cable and RCA plugs
Integral VTA adjustment
Fits all Rega armboard cutouts – old style threaded base or new 3-point mounting
