- Kalista now offers the Kalista Elektra in a new rack version as an alternative to the existing version that can only be operated vertically.
Métronome Technologie has always relied on a particularly sophisticated power supply, optimised down to the last detail, for all systems offered by the French digital specialist. Of course, this also applies in particular to the solutions that the company develops under the Kalista brand, i.e. the designated High-end hi-fi product line.
The Kalista DreamPlay X, Kalista DreamPlay XC and Kalista Mantax Reference DAC solutions therefore utilise the so-called Kalista Elektra, which is basically nothing more than the outsourced power supply unit of the two systems from the French High-end HiFi manufacturer.
Kalista Elektra – The power supply unit for the Kalista DreamPlay X, Kalista DreamPlay XC and Kalista Mantax Reference DAC
According to Jean Marie Clauzel, owner and chief developer of Métronome Technologie and Kalista, the power supply for High-end HiFi systems must be given the utmost attention. In fact, it is quite remarkable how much effort the company puts into this, especially with the Kalista DreamPlay X, Kalista DreamPlay XC and Kalista Mantax Reference DAC solutions, as these are the latest generation systems and therefore the most sophisticated power supply to date.
Kalista Elektra Rack Version – Vertical and now also horizontal
The power supply, which goes by the name of Kalista Elektra, was previously presented as a vertical, not so compact and in any case very heavy external component, which is designed to be as elegant as possible, but ultimately is often intended to be discreetly concealed, as the systems for which it is used as a power supply have a particularly outstanding design.
In order to make the placement of the power supply even more flexible, Métronome Technologie now offers the Kalista Elektra in a so-called rack version, i.e. in the form of a solution that can be placed horizontally, as an alternative to the previously vertical version.
Prices and availability
Of course, this version is also available in both silver and black, just like the previous version. It is available immediately from specialist retailers.
Getting to the point
It is details like these that characterise a true High-end HiFi manufacturer, such as the new version of the Kalista Elektra power supply now offered by Métronome Technologie under the Kalista brand. This serves as the power supply for the Kalista DreamPlay X and Kalista DreamPlay XC solutions as well as the Kalista Mantax Reference DAC and was previously presented as a system to be operated vertically. From now on, customers can also request a horizontally operated solution as a so-called rack version.
