Aurora mk. III
AURORA MK3 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." read more --WHAT HI-FI
"The good news is the Aurora does not require a $3000 cartridge to sound great. Coupled with the OL Silver MK IIIA tone arm 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" Read More - HI FI CHOICE
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 it's award winning predecessors but with improved looks and significantly increased performance. Remarkably, it offers true high end performance at an extraordinarily low price point, comfortably outperforming many expensive decks, even when fitted with inexpensive tone arms and cartridges.
Performance hallmarks are superb transparency, coherent timing, tangible sound staging and imaging. The Aurora's inherent musicality and system friendly tonal balance guarantees many years of listening pleasure.
Options include a 12 inch arm mount, or dual armboard which can be ordered using the option button below.
You may be asking yourself whether the differences between turntables are really that significant, and also wondering how much you should invest in a good front end. To make an informed choice on how a better deck will dramatically improve your system performance, please see “Why your choice of deck really matters”. This also reveals the story behind our cutting edge performance and introduces many aspects that apply to all our decks, saving repetition that would otherwise occur on every turntable page.
Arm Mount - The deck includes an arm mounting to fit all Origin Live 240mm (9.5") arms. For full details on other arms that will fit please see link "What arms fit ". A mounting option to fit 12" arms is also available in the order options, but this is not in addition - it is an "either" "or" choice. You can change over to a 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 & Looks: Sculpted in stylish curves with a black polished finish that will be an eyecatcher in most surroundings.
