Origin Live Ultra DC drive upgrade

The Ultra DC motor kit offers owners of turntables the advanced technology & reference performance used in our Resolution Turntable, with components costing 100 times more than those used in the standard motor kit this is a true reference option. Contains vastly improved regulation circuit as well as upgraded components.

The power supply comprises: DC100 Motor, Ultra off-board control box and power supply 240/230 v 50HZ and 110v 60HZ options.

You can also buy the control box alone as an upgrade for the advanced motor kit.

“The single most important upgrade you can make concerns the motor drive...nothing can prepare you for the shock of going DC. In a word, gobsmacking.
Common Ground Magazine
“The difference the kit made to sound quality was remarkable”

“Its value is nothing short of tremendous.”

“You will not be prepared for the difference the DC motor makes, or the magnitude of improvements made by swapping the partnering switch boxes and mains transformers....It’s been said before: the LP12 is all about notes stopping and starting ...the ability to hear the tune. But with the Origin Live components this really is the case....you become appreciative of the overall intelligibility, absolute stability of imaging. The way the music gains in continuity over the span of a piece is something I can only liken to experiencing master-tape replay at Abbey Road Studios. I strongly preferred the more powerful DC200 motor: even with the silver box it added definition to low pitched notes on strings and pianoforte. The Ultra box brought even more control, the bigger transformer then adding still more sound-stage depth, separation and apparent dynamic range. Now there was more expression, more graceful phrasing by the musicians, and the bass was still more extended, good though the basic combination had been. One noticed new details in performance ....which increased listening pleasure, sharpening concentration.”
Classic Record Review

“If you are thinking of upgrading your system, investing around 400 Euros in the Origin Live dc-motor kit should be high on your list for consideration.”
TNT Audio

Being somewhat cynical of some manufacturers claims, I expected the Origin Live Ultra upgrade to provide a subtle change in overall sound. I was wrong. The improvement this upgrade has made to my LP12 was dramatic. Even more shocking was to receive positive comments from a guest who walked into the room “wow that sounds extremely live.” A comment from someone who had never expressed an interest in music whatsoever and thought the term ‘vinyl’ referred only to a tabletop covering!
