Hearing an Enterprise is an unforgettable event. Breathtakingly realistic, it simply lets the music flow out to the listener in an unmediated way.
Although it deserves the very best turntables and cartridges that money can buy, it unlocks huge performance gains from lesser ones and makes mediocre recordings positively sing.
From its massively powerful and highly tuneful bass, to a treble that is gorgeously silky yet amazingly spacious, it’s a sublime performer.
The mineral clarity of the midband is uncanny, and the sound staging profound. Prospective purchasers of a high-end tonearm owe it to themselves to audition this seminal design.

Enterprise Tonearm Reviews Quotes
“A superb pickup arm with a grippingly musical sound and lovely rhythmic ability. It has wonderful tonal shading (an SME Series V sounds monochrome by comparison) and deep soundstaging, with masses of detail… overall it’s an exceptional performer—one which offers a brilliant mix of tonality and rhythmic grip.” Read the full review >
“The Origin Live Enterprise C tonearm allowed direct access to the art of music so convincingly and with such complete satisfaction that I have no choice but to consider it an ultimate tonearm. It is a supreme achievement.” Read the full review >
“…in the case of the Enterprise-C (12 inch) what notional sacrifices are made in extending the arm are more than balanced by the added accuracy across the whole album side. There is a ‘just cut’ fluidity and openness to the sound that makes it seem like albums you know through repeated plays are fresh from the stamper.” Read the full review >
“You are just so bowled over by the music that the rest is simply ‘in the noise level’. But it’s weird, this is what the records are supposed to be communicating, and suddenly, it’s completely natural and easy to listen to….” Read more owner comments >
The Enterprise simply places the music in front of me, no forcing, no false presentation, no mimicry, no facsimile, just as it should be, so that, even with limited amount on instruments being played I can fully appreciate the skill of each musician as they weave the soundscape in front of me. Absolutely stunning. Read more owner comments >
