The award-winning Sovereign deck is a favourite of many audio experts – and is owned by hi-fi magazine editors and reviewers alike. Better specified than lesser decks in the Origin Live range, it boasts improved decoupling of the main bearing and armboard. The MK3-1 version introduces a complex multilayer platter designed to dissipate energy in the most effective manner possible.
The high mass plinth is of a special decoupling design, and the superior motor power supply improves the performance further still. The Balanced Upgrade Transformer is included as standard, giving a uncanny sense of effortless and ease to its musical performance.
Sovereign is hand-built in Britain to extremely high standards, making the user experience all the more special. Its unique styling is purposeful yet elegant.
Options include a 12 inch arm mount and a dual armboard. See below for details. PLEASE NOTE THIS TURNTABLE DOES NOT COME WITH AN ARM.
  • Option 1 - Sovereign MK3-1 standard model £5700
  • Option 2 - Sovereign MK3-1 with sub-chassis for 12" arm £6090
  • Option 3 - Sovereign MK3-1 with dual armboard £6190
Arm Mount
  • The deck includes an arm mounting to fit all Origin Live 240mm (9.5") tonearms. A mounting option to fit 12" arms is also available, but this is an either/or choice, rather than an addition. You can change over to the 12" option at a later date, but there is a considerable saving if you order it with the deck in the first place.
Superb Styling
  • Sovereign is a visually arresting turntable, 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 subchassis with unique centre point support and damping devices
  • Specially damped, high mass motor housing
  • Special high grade oil
Power Supply
  • Sovereign's load-compensating power supply is the culmination of work done over several decades, and is designed to feed clean power to the motor across a wide range of temperatures. It uses highly sophisticated circuitry, higher grade components and a top quality transformer. Speed control is switched electronically between 33 rpm and 45 rpm.
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 years of fuss-free performance. VTA arm adjustment is convenient, with open access to the underside of the armboard.
  • 450mm wide, 380mm deep, 160mm high
  • 32kg (heavyweight platter is an additional 2.1kg)
