From the manufacturers web site:
(The) Calypso is an all-tube line stage 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.
* Available in black or silver faceplate.
* Calypso is available in two versions: Standard and Signature.
The standard version uses high-grade Rel-Cap polypropylene coupling capacitors. The Signature version uses exotic and expensive coupling capacitors and other critical parts to bring the performance to a higher level.
All versions of Calypso can be factory upgraded to Signature.
The unit comes complete with remote control, manual, power cord, original shipping container, and hundreds of dollars worth of tubes including Tung Sol, Phillips, Kobe TEN, General Electric, Sylvania, Rogers, Electro Harmonix and various white box tubes.
