Kalista was born at the beginning of the 2000’s in the workshop of a French Hifi handcrafter, the company Métronome Technologie, located in the countryside county of Tarn. The main goal of their staff was to make a unique piece of design and sound performance… Unveiled in 2003, Kalista is immediately successful and is awarded by many professionals and trade magazines. Several hundreds of devices enjoy European, Asian or American audiophiles. The foundations of the mythic Kalista were simple: three feet for stability, high quality components and noble materials. The designer’s imagination did the rest, for a result, let’s say : gorgeous, isn’t’ it? Kalista makes a point of making 100% Made in France products, from conception to manufacturing and to the last audiophile testings. They are amongst the last Hifi handcrafters in the world, specifically for electronic boards making, that is realized by hand in their workshop. In order to be certain of the best requirement level, Kalista gives hours of time to listening all kinds of music styles on their devices, for validation of their musical pieces of art. From design to prototyping and to end product validation, each and every device is approved by Kalista’s acousticians. This is the price for emotion.
