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.
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.
Performance Features differentiating this deck from the Aurora
Moving from a modified Technics 1210 with the OL Zephyr Arm to the Calypso with upgraded multi layer platter, paired with both the Zephyr and a new Illustrious arm by adding the dual arm board has delivered an unexpected but incredibly enjoyable leap in playback - bass of fuller , details and dynamics are magnitudes improved and the overall imaging , pace and sheer engagement of listening have all improved . Superb design and execution from Mark and the OL team and my end game turntable I believe !
