All Calypso Turntable Reviews

“…it will come as no surprise that I am totally smitten with this player.

And even in technical and audiophile terms, I’ve not heard a better performance than this.” Read the full review >

Hi-Fi World

“The Aurora Mk1 provided two years of great pleasure in this home and if the sound it delivered could have be described as good then this upgrade is simply astonishing, and I now understand the praise the Aurora Gold has received from so many reviewers. This is a giant killer of a deck and delivers a true sense of realism in music. Thanks again. ”
