Calypso MK3-1 Turntable

"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 turntable gets the thumbs up it thoroughly deserves for the fine performance it provided.” Malcolm Steward, Hi Fi Choice


For out-and-out performance, this deck has it all. Capable of outperforming many decks on the market at many times its price, Calypso MK3 is simply without peer.

Its strengths lie in the superb transparency, dynamics, and tangible soundstaging. Also, being neutral and system-friendly, it suits most applications very well.

The Calypso improves on lower decks in the range thanks to its significantly upgraded motor supply, improved isolation of the main bearing and high mass solid metal ‘inertia’ disc to damp plinth vibration.

Options include a 12 inch arm mount, or dual armboard which can be ordered using the option button below.

Quick Overview

Arm Mount
The deck includes an arm mounting to fit 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.

Superb Styling
The elegant simplicity of Aurora MK3’s sculpted curves, along with its deep polished finish and top quality machine parts make it a highly attractive design.

Technical Features
- Heavy inertia disc for mounting the subchassis reduces vertical modes of vibration
- Inertia disc pods resist rotational forces due to ground- and airborne vibration
- ‘Ultra’ control circuit using higher grade components for improved performance

Power Supply
Calypso features a load-compensating regulated power supply which is stable across a wide range of operating temperatures. Speed control is easily switched electronically between 33 and 45rpm; 78rpm is also available on request.

Setting Up 
Thanks to its unique design, there’s nothing to go out-of-tune. A non-suspended design, it is simple to set up for years of fuss-free performance. VTA arm adjustment is convenient, with open access to the underside of the armboard.
