Silver with black chassis. Cosmetics are excellent and operation is perfect. Fully balanced and single ended inputs and outputs. Highest quality components: Roderstein, RelCap, Mercury Magnetics, Nichicon, etc.

All amplification is tubed. NOS tubes were installed (between 300-400 hours on them now). Perfect mirror matched pair Mullard 12AX7 (early '60s). Matched pair Amperex JAN 7308 (mid '60s). Both pairs among the best sounding tubes ever made, and make this Calypso really sing. Tubes selected and matched specifically for this unit by Andy Bouwman at Vintage Tube Services.

**UPDATE: One of the Amperex JAN 7308 tubes developed a bit of noise (only heard with you ear up to the speaker tweeter). I prefer a lower noise floor. So I have a pretty much brand new matched pair of Genalex Gold Lion installed now which were just purchased from The Tube Store ($150 value). I will of course still include the pair of Amperex JAN 7308's to keep as backup or they can be used as primary with the Gold Lions as a backup pair.
