ORIGIN LIVE Aurora MK3-1 Turntable
Stellar performer, wonderfully realistic presentation
AURORA MK3-1 TURNTABLE
"A stellar performer with wonderfully realistic presentation… Enticing looks and celestial sounds… Superb attack, rigid bass, excellent dynamics, all of which means continually engrossing performances and edge-of-the-seat listening! …It looks like a star and sounds like heaven – a class leader in every respect…” What Hi-Fi read more
"The good news is the Aurora does not require a $3,000 cartridge to sound great. Coupled with the OL Silver MK IIIA tonearm and a budget cartridge I could be happy to live with it long term. It offers true high end sound at a reasonable price and has the ability to transport the recorded performance into your listening. I cannot part with it, so I purchased the review sample."

"Surely the best £750 black disc spinner in outright sonic terms…” Hi-Fi World
"It's very hard to think what else you could ask of this… Its build is excellent at the price, its sonic performance is simply superb, and there's certainly nothing wrong its looks either" Hi-Fi Choice read more
“We had the Aurora playing over the weekend in store and everyone was extremely impressed with the sound it was producing for the cost – I have to say it is amazing value and puts certain other brands to shame at twice the cost.” Andy, Rayleigh Hi-Fi
The Aurora MK3 turntable follows in the steps of its award-winning predecessors, but with improved looks and significantly increased performance. Remarkably, it offers true high end performance at an affordable price point, comfortably outperforming many more expensive decks – even when fitted with inexpensive tonearms and cartridges.
Performance hallmarks are superb transparency, coherent timing, tangible soundstaging and accurate imaging. The Aurora's inherent musicality and smooth tonal balance guarantee many years of listening pleasure.
Options include a 12 inch arm mount, or dual armboard which can be ordered using the option button below.
For more information about turntable buying, and how choosing a better deck can transform the sound of your system, see 'Why your choice of deck really matters'.
The deck includes an arm mounting to fit all Origin Live 240mm (9.5") tonearms. For full details on other arms that will fit, see "What arms fit". A mounting option to fit 12" arms is also available, but this is an either/or choice, rather than an addition. Customers can change over to the 12" option at a later date, but there’s a considerable saving if you order it with the deck in the first place.
The elegant simplicity of Aurora MK3’s sculpted curves, along with its deep polished finish and top quality machine parts make it a highly attractive design.
High Grade Parts
- Special platter material reduces internal stress and delivers greater sonic purity
- High precision bearing runs on special oil film
- Ultra rigid subchassis minimises resonance due its unique, centre-point support
- Ironless DC motor runs near-silently, with no 'cogging' effect
Speed control is electronically switched between 33rpm and 45 rpm, with 78rpm available on request. The regulated power supply is load-compensating and has very low noise, delivering smooth motor rotation.
Thanks to its unique design, there’s nothing to go out-of-tune on the Aurora. A non-suspended design, it is simple to set up for years of fuss-free performance. VTA arm adjustment is convenient, with open access to the underside of the armboard.
