Calliope (high gloss black)

Classic beauty was, is and will be forever

Calliope was one of the nine mythological Greek muses, the one with the beautiful voice. She was also the mother of the most known musician of the antique world: Orfeo.

Project Calliope had lasted a year and a half: we started right after the production of Orfeo started. Calliope’s mission is to play music in the best possible way in its compact floorstanding size.

Calliope opens new horizons in listening of music in home high-end audio, using a combination of the best available materials with the highest technological solutions. A true value lasting in time.
