Options and Extras
The Multilayer platter is an option available for the Aurora, Calypso and Resolution decks. It is included as standard on Sovereign turntables. This option makes a colossal difference to the performance (more so than the difference between 2 turntable models).
Noteable are increased dynamics, ultra fast transients, deeper bass and improved definition throughout the range. However all aspects of the music benefit from the multi-layer platter. Hi Fi Critic Magazine made the following comments on the multi-layer:
“The sonic outcome of fitting the new platter to the Calypso was not marginal in a “well, it might as well stay now it’s on there” kind-of-way. It was shockingly effective, resulting in a 50% plus uplift in performance over stock…… It is a masterpiece of voicing that must have taken heaven only knows how long to get right. It works evenly, top to bottom, removing the fog from recordings. Timing, dynamics and tonal veracity are all improved. For full comments see link below.
Fully Balanced Upgrade Transformer
The performance of the deck can be significantly upgraded with the “Fully balanced Upgrade Transformer”. This option is applicable to all turntables below the Sovereign.
Clear Acrylic Lid
You can order a bespoke Lid from various online plastic stores. – This is a good idea if you have young children or pets and need a completely enclosed solution. If however you just need to keep dust off the platter and arm then the Michell Unicover will suffice.
12 inch Armboard option is a change in Sub-chassis which allows you to fit one of our 12 inch arms.
Twin armboard option allows you to fit two 9.5 inch arms to the deck.
