The Calypso performance improves over Aurora in all aspects of music. In particular bass weight, definition and depth are increased. Resolution across the whole audio spectrum is significantly improved. Dynamics and the projection of voices take on a new realism. These improvements are made possible through the added specific features listed lower down.
Calypso Specific Features
The deck mounts all Origin Live 240mm (9.5″) tonearms. A mounting option to fit 12″ arms is also available, but this is an either/or choice, rather than an addition. Customers can change over to the 12″ option at a later date, but there’s a considerable saving if you order it with the deck.
The elegant simplicity Calypso MK4 sculpted curves, along with its deep polished finish and top quality machine parts make it a highly attractive design.
