Källa is now shipping

Post by lejonklou »

The final trimmings are now complete and Källa will start shipping tomorrow, Monday the 27th of September.

Prices have also been set. Källa will cost SEK 59000, EUR 5900 or USD 8495. Not sure about the price in GBP yet, Marco may chime in with that.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I'm looking forward to your impressions. It's been such a long and intense project with so much secrecy involved. To be frank it's been lonely at times. But the wait is over. Premiere night is here. Curtains open.

Congratulations.

I think it's fair to say that most of us in the audience are expecting some pretty impressed reviewers.

Källa was four years in the making, but Frederik's reputation has built up over more than a decade, punctuated by a series of products of which every single one has impressed.

Probably time for a holiday - but I suspect that Källa will keep Frederik busy for some time.

Congratulations Fredrik,

Källa is unique among digital streamers developed with the Tune Method and letting do the Apple device streaming from the services.
I expect it sounding unique as well.
I wish you nothing but blessings with Källa and I am so curious to listen to it in the flesh.......

Fantastic news Fredrik, congrats!

Even if we haven't heard it yet I know - as with any of your products - it will be more than worth the wait.
So far all have exceeded my expectations.....and then some.

RRP of Källa in the UK has been set at £ 5600 incl. VAT.

Congratulations to Fredrik and his team for pulling off something that seemed impossible in 2016/ 2017.

I remember the developments, the prototypes and the impossible challenges then which made you pull back and re-evaluate the whole Digital Process and the step changes necessary to make a simple, reliable and musical streamer.

It is quite an achievment just to re-enter that same rabbit hole, but to stay there until you have mastered the illogical and super complex world of musical digital replay - thats really something.

You must be feeling relieved, proud and very tired- Well done indeed.

macrotech,

I’d be very interested to hear your Linn beating Vitus. Any chance of a video, preferably with a comparison?

In Amsterdam the Kalla will be an IJ-catcher I suppose.

Yes, but not yet from this first batch.

Källa 002 will be my private one and not leave our premises, period :-)
As I've experienced over the years that too often for my liking my Lejonklou gear has been away for demo purposes so this one is here to stay.

Källa 003 will be our travelling demo unit.

We have more Källas on order - next in line are Lejonklou dealers Kantata Audio, Lisburn, N-I and Authentic in Brussels, Belgium as these were our first dealers who placed their orders.
I'll post an update once their Källas are on their way.

Congratulations, Fredrik! I know how much work has been involved in this and I think it is going to surprise a lot of people with its ease and musicality. I am much looking forward to getting 004. Like Marco the first one will be a permanent part of my personal/demo/show system and I will have another one that will be a demo to be sent out for evaluation and review. However, that will be the third one as I already promised the second one to a customer of mine who was the first to order one. I have a bunch on order so I should be in OK shape.

Hi ThomasOK,
One question, if possible, some clips from Kalla in your system ... that have to be one of the best performance ...
Thanks in advance ... ;-)

I'll see what I can do. I will be picking up an iPhone 11 so I have the best controller and am playing around with ideas for hard disc playback. I have to warm up to the system again. I haven't actually played a record in almost three months. Just a bit of radio in the car here and there.
