Product Overview

The Silver arm is now in MK3A form, having undergone significant upgrading since its introduction in 2002. When first launched the arm received widespread acclaim for outperforming high end arms but at a fraction of the cost.

The Silver possesses a superb blend of performance attributes which make it a truly great all round performer, It's inherent musicality allows it excels in all aspects of music to produce great dynamics, natural tonal balance, transparency and a host of other virtues. Unlike many arms, this arm does not have any obvious weaknesses.

"Origin Live’s Mark Baker continues his world-wide dominance of tonearm design with this extensive re-working of the already superb Silver arm. Retaining the original’s superb timing, rhythm, bass control, and articulation, the new Silver MKII adds a substantially more neutral and error-free mid-band and top-end, able to integrate the typical rising high-frequency response of moving-coil cartridges coherently and without edge. Capable of great nuance and extreme subtlety, the Silver MKII also has great authority, drive and control, yielding an exceptionally deep communication of all music’s meaning."

    Great arm for the price

    Posted by Stephen Fox on 13th Jun 2013

    Though maybe not the ultimate cry in design and just entry-gate for High End, the OL Silver delivers great soundstage, detail depth and allover tonal balance allowing your cartrige (whatever brand) to work at its best, especially MC's without spending a fortune. Easy to set up. Snug drop in for Regas, works delightfully with Michell's TT and the like. Highly recommended and a real bargain at asking price. British AudioStore offers great convenience & competence and dedicated service. What else?
