Focal Kanta N° 1 & PrimaLuna EVO 200 Tube Integrated Amplifier
Focal Kanta N° 1
This bookshelf loudspeaker from the Kanta N°1 line will discreetly blend into any unit or stand: it is the perfect solution for rooms under 25m². Entirely dedicated to acoustic performance and with a resolutely personal aesthetic: that, in a nutshell, is the Kanta DNA! After three years of research, Focal offers a new combination of exclusive technologies: the marriage of Beryllium, in the next generation IAL3 tweeter, and Flax, for the midrange and bass speaker drivers. The result? A precise, detailed sound, brimming with warmth and musicality.
Several combinations are available with Kanta, to blend seamlessly into any style of interior.
The Carrara White and Black Lacquer gloss finishes offer elegant and timeless white or black. In both cases, the finish covers the entire loudspeaker, cabinet and front panel.
The cabinet is also available in two walnut veneer finishes: Walnut High Gloss or Walnut Matte. The Walnut High Gloss model features a Black Lacquer front panel. Meanwhile, the Walnut Matte models are combined with two front panels in either: Ivory or Dark Grey, also with a matte finish.
PrimaLuna EVO 200 Tube Integrated Amplifier
PrimaLuna engineers wanted to make owning a tube amp so simple you would have no excuse not to have your tube dreams come true. PrimaLuna employs Point to Point Wiring on all products. The entire signal path, including resistors and capacitors, is painstakingly hand wired with heavy-gauge cable by craftsman.
All PrimaLuna products use massive, potted toroidal transformers. PrimaLuna transformers are enclosed in a metal housing and then potted in a non-microphonic resin to further reduce noise and to protect the windings from moisture and deterioration forever. PrimaLuna output transformers are custom-designed, wound in-house, and massive. One reason why no other brand sounds like a PrimaLuna.
If a tube fails, Adaptive AutoBias will instantly put the amplifier into protection mode so no parts can get damaged. A red LED will light up in front of the tube that needs replacing. Simply plug in another tube, and listen. No guesswork. No smoking amp. No getting out the soldering iron or dropping your amp off at UPS. PrimaLuna’s Adaptive AutoBias is a true, smart technology employing an array of sensors to monitor tubes and make adjustments seamlessly in real time. More important, it is the ONLY circuit of its kind that is truly “adaptive” by addressing “tube pinch off” at higher volumes, therefore reducing distortion by over 50% and greatly extending tube life. Adaptive AutoBias is completely passive and NOT in the signal path. The result is low to no maintenance, long tube life, and the lowest possible distortion for amazing sound.
