I’m listing as 8/10 as I’m 2nd owner of this unit.  It had been factory serviced and new tubes installed prior to my purchasing less than a year ago.  I rolled in 4 NOS tubes (2x RCA 12AX7 and 2x Mullard 6288) from Vintage Tube Service at a cost of $368.  I will include both factory and rolled tubes at my price.


Calypso is an all-tube linestage suitable for audio and home cinema systems. Fully balanced circuitry from input to output, including internal balancing of single-ended inputs, results in common mode signal rejection and cleaner sound. The innovative discrete switched resister volume control maximizes resolution at any listening level. Every input is both single-ended and balanced for greater versatility. Home theatre bypass mode, absolute phase setting and full function remote are added conveniences. The all-aluminum chassis is rigid, acoustically inert and simply beautiful.


    • Fully balanced differential circuitry with ability to internally balance a single ended input signal.


    • Zero feedback.


    • Discrete switched resistor volume control with 88 1dB steps.


    • All tube amplification and output (4 tubes total).


    • Two sets of XLR and two sets of RCA outputs per channel.


    • Bypass mode for home theatre processor throughput.


    • Absolute phase, selectable via front panel or remote control.


  • Full function remote included.
