Oh boy Oh boy. Imagine taking Mola Mola’s separate tech and wrapping it up in one small chassis? Meet Kula.
The Kula Integrated Amplifier’s modular design takes the line stage section, optional phono stage, and chassis from the company’s Makua preamp, the optional DAC module which is identical to the Tambaqui DAC (see review), and a Mola Mola exclusive nCore-based amplifier which offers 150 Watts into 8 Ohms, doubling into 4.
All in one, indeed.
3 balanced and 3 unbalanced inputs, selectable by switch and software
2 Pairs of Furutech binding posts. Directly connected to the amplifier PCB using Kubala·Sosna cable
