BRIEF DESCRIPTION :

With its sculpted acrylic structure similar to the well known Kalista CD transport, the Calypso CD Transport is the entry point of the Calypso/Kalista CD Transport series developed by METRONOME TECHNOLOGIE. Its exceptional musical capabilities combined with the finest design are really dedicated to the connoisseurs who insist on ultimate sound performances.

DESCRIPTION :


Main Highlights and Design Features:
The Philips CDM 12 Pro 2 metal chassis has been significantly customized by METRONOME TECHNOLGIE and provides a stable foundation to very accurately capture the signal.

The PMMA and stainless steel clamp and the proprietary shaft specially designed by METRONOME TECHNOLGIE permit a better stability of the CD and consequently to reproduce the best possible sound with a low jitter.

Continuous ground link from the disc surface to the electrical earth permits the dissipation of static electricity for better working conditions of electronic and optical components.

A switchable upsampling device delivers 24 bit/96 kHz signal to the D/A converter.

The power supply with individual power transformers and completely independent regulation lines for each critical part of the transport display, servo mechanism, micro-processor, digital output stage - provides an inter-stage EMI/RFI radiation protection and insures a dynamic analog-like sound quality.

The Calypso CD Transport can be upgraded upon request with a higher quality Elektra power supply.
