There are many turntable oils on the market that do little or nothing to enhance performance. It is estimated that you could easily spend an extra £200 to £500 on a cartridge and not get the level of improvement possible by changing to Origin Live's Oil.
Please Note: This oil cannot be used on Rega, Technics, Michell Engineering, Pink Triangle or decks with inverted bearings.
The theory is that your bearing needs to be vibration-free and frictionless – in reality, bearings suffer from a multitude of low level vibration modes and non audible noise which is clearly measurable. When you recognise this noise and movement is amplified thousands of times by your cartridge and amplifier, these factors suddenly become absolutely critical to obtain greater performance.
What is not generally realised is that the type of oil used in the bearing can be the most influential component of the entire assembly. It is reasonable to assume that a turntable manufacturer has carefully researched the oil to use in his particular design and to depart from this is risky. The truth is that there are thousands of oils and additives on the market which means the research necessary is well beyond the time constraints of most manufacturers. As a result, their turntable oils are nothing special and neither do they receive much attention–they serve to protect the bearing and lower friction, but the massive scope for performance improvement persists unrealised.
