Main Highlights and Design Features

The Philips CDM 12 Pro 2 metal chassis has been significantly customized by METRONOME TECHNOLGIE and provides a stable foundation to very accurately capture the signal.

The Perpex® and stainless steel clamp and the proprietary shaft designed by METRONOME TECHNOLGIE permit a better stability of the CD and consequently to reproduce the best possible sound with a low jitter.

Continuous ground link from the disc surface to the electrical earth permits the dissipation of static electricity for better working conditions of electronic and optical components.

A switchable upsampling device delivers 24 bit/96 kHz signal to the D/A converter.

The Elektra separate power supply with individual power transformers and completely independent regulation lines for each critical part of the transport - display, servo mechanism, motor, digital output stage - provides an inter-stage EMI/RFI radiation protection and insures a dynamic analog-like sound quality. It also permits to mechanically isolate the sensitive electronic components from the vibration induced by the transformers.

Kalista may come with a series of options, such as a magnificent tripod stand as well as customizations.
