The KALA 22

The KALA 22 is an incredible performer at its price, delivering levels of musical insight not found in most price-no-object music server-streamers. It even gets very close to the performance of the amazing KALA 50 provided you do not require it to house a very large library, or to perform DSP functions.

If your priority is to be immersed in gorgeous sound and feel the emotional pull of your music, then the KALA 22 will delight you.

The KALA 22 cannot run the HQPlayer Server App, but it does support HQPlayer NAA. All other apps in our software suite are supported, with the exception of the DSP features within the apps.

DESIGN

The KALA 22 uses a single custom computer for both Server and Player apps. The Server/Player computer is derived from the Player computer in the KALA 50 but with increased processing resources. The KALA 22 outputs are the same as for the KALA 50, except that Ethernet streaming to your DAC is over your network (the KALA 50 and KALA 41 additionally provide Direct Streaming).

The medium-power Server/Player computer controls what is played and allows you to play over your network to multiple end-points, and to the DAC in your main system by USB, S/PDIF, AES3 & I2S.

HiFi Advice

"the K22 ticked so many of the same boxes of the [K50 or K41+K22] it offers the exact same tonal balance and it sure wasn’t reducing the musicality or involvement... even in terms of resolution, transparency, and texturing, the K22-solo was not yielding to the [K50 or K41+K22]."

UPGRADING

As with all KALAs, the KALA 22 is designed to be upgradable when we release new KALA models.

But you can also upgrade your KALA 22 to KALA 50 performance on all outputs by adding a KALA 41. Separating the Server and Player apps and providing more power for the Server app adds more musical insight and refinement, while supporting huge libraries with ease and handling DSP functions.
