Kalista Mantax Reference DAC celebrates its premiere in Vienna

The Kalista Mantax Reference DAC is the spearhead in the field of D/A converters for the exclusive Kalista brand from Métronome Technologie. This exquisite solution will celebrate its European premiere on 18 November 2023 in Vienna.

Story Highlights
  • On Saturday, 18 November 2023, the latest addition to the Kalista brand from Métronome Technologie will celebrate its European premiere, the Kalista Mantax Reference DAC.

With the Kalista Mantax Reference DAC, the French High-end HiFi manufacturer Métronome Technologie presents a new outstanding solution from its premium brand Kalista, a converter at the absolute reference level, as the company promises. It is aimed at all those hi-fi enthusiasts who want a dedicated specialist for every task in their HiFi chain.

The new Kalista Mantax Reference DAC is thus designed above all as the perfect playing partner for another outstanding solution from the Kalista brand, namely the Kalista DreamPlay X.

Kalista Mantax Reference DAC and Kalista DreamPlay X SACD/CD transport

Métronome Technologie promises that the Kalista DreamPlay X is nothing less than the reference for the playback of audio CD and Super Audio CD content, because everything has been done to achieve a near-perfect performance at the very highest level

The French High-end HiFi manufacturer remains firmly convinced that Audio CD, and Super Audio CD in particular, is an outstanding medium for audiophile music reproduction. It is therefore essential for a company like Métronome Technologie to continue to provide the best tools for this task.

While the Kalista DreamPlay XC is a so-called 4-in-1 concept that combines an SACD/CD player with an integrated streaming client, D/A converter and preamplifier, the Kalista DreamPlay X is actually limited to the task of SACD/CD transport alone. And this is where the new Kalista Mantax Reference DAC comes into play.

Whichever you prefer – AKM or ESS? Solid state or tube?

The special feature of the Kalista Mantax Reference DAC is first and foremost that users can rely on different sound characteristics here, because on the one hand this solution offers a converter from the specialist ESS Technologie Ltd. as well as one from the specialist Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation, and in addition you can choose between solid state and tube for the output stage.
