There is some waiting involved between order and delivery, but not more than a couple of weeks. Right now I have three on order. They take a while to complete as the final tuning is laborious.
Alrighty
Meanwhile I’ll hear what it’s all about, I’m getting the demo KÄLLA from Marco, to test (happy)
Looking at the rest of your system, just follow the setup guidelines to the letter, and you should absolutely love it!
I agree with this without reservation. I was only able to appreciate the qualities of the Källa in the second attempt, after the room had been acoustically treated. Since then, it has been playing several hours a day.

99% of all things recommended in the setup are still here in place due to extensive HAKAI testing
And i still use (lucky) an iPhone 11

How about reporting TM3 shipments as well, Fredrik?

I can absolutely do that, macrotech2, if you want me to. Takes no time at all.

As a separate thread or perhaps better in the Tundra Mono 3 thread?

Brilliant Fredrik. In the Tundra Mono 3 thread perhaps? It can always be separated out if need be.

Good idea Macrotech2. I would prefer a separation like the Källa.

Thank you Mitmu and TMV!

Källa 062 has been shipped to Châteauguay, Montreal in Canada.

There is a new HiFi specialist opening there, called Passion Audio. That's a name right up my alley. Can't wait to pay them a visit!

Källa 063 was shipped to L'Audio Distribution in Marseille, France.

L'Audio Distribution SA is our latest distributor, serving France. They jumped on board after having evaluated Slipsik 8 and Giella ∏ 1.2 and I'm excited to hear what they think of Källa!

I neglected to update this thread, but Källa 070 is the latest unit to have been completed. Each one requires lots of time and effort to build, because of the tight specifications. So usually when one is ready, it's already been ordered. But 070 is still available, so it seems I've finally caught up with the backlog.

It really warms my heart to read the feedback from owners. Nothing I've built has sparked such intense enthusiasm.

Nearly all Källa's are bought after a curious enthusiast has borrowed one and listened for a week or so. Once experienced, they don't want to be without it. And the three of us in the Källa team feel the same way - we are all still amazed by what it does and wonder if we will ever be able to surpass it. Truly a source of endless thrills!

Can only agree, love it a lot!

Do you still keep producing it, or will 070 be the last one?
