Origin Live Calypso MK4 Turntable - 30 Day Money-Back Guarantee
“Pace is second to none along with precision and an extremely believable sound stage. Even with the least expensive pick up arm, this turntable projects an image that at times is frighteningly realistic.” -Hi-Fi World
“Simply stated, the Origin Live Illustrious tonearm/Aurora Gold turntable (now Calypso) produce the best musical results of any turntable I’ve ever heard, regardless of price.” -Stereo Times This listing does not include a tonearm or cartridge
For out-and-out performance, this deck has all the attributes you could ask for. Strengths lie in superb transparency, timing, musicality, dynamics, and tangible soundstaging. Capable of outperforming much more expensive, respected decks, Calypso MK4 is not going to dissapoint you. Also, being neutral and system-friendly, it suits most applications very well.
You will notice a significant bass weight, definition and depth. Dynamics and the projection of voices take on a new realism. These improvements are made possible through the added specific features.
- Heavy inertia disc for mounting the sub-chassis reduces vertical modes of vibration
- Inertia discs positioned at extremities of Plinth resist rotational forces arising from ground and airborne vibration
- Higher grade Swiss Motor with double the Torque of Aurora Motor.
- Higher tolearance Bearing
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.
