Better To Receive
The chassis of both models has been crafted from aluminium for a sturdy foundation for the electronics, whilst control is via the supplied T+A F100 remote control or the T+A Control app (available for Apple and Android devices). For those looking to make a design statement, both models also feature an LED strip light to create an ambient white, blue, green or red ‘glow’ on the underside of the chassis. The light intensity and colour can be chosen by the user or turned off completely.
The CALA SR is a multi-functional streaming receiver that acts as a complete Hi-Fi system. The model features an integrated amplifier with a large range of connection facilities and powerful 2x 55W output stages for an exceptional performance.
Users can access a range of supported sources, such as Internet radio with Airable Internet Radio Service, FM, FM-HD and DAB+ radio, in addition to in-built streaming service clients Deezer, qobuz and TIDAL. HD Bluetooth streaming also allows users to stream seamlessly from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, whilst UPnP, network music servers and USB storage are also accessible. The CALA SR even allows for reproduction of analogue sources including Phono MM and high output MC.
The CALA SR has been handcrafted with the finest materials for an optimal performance. The main casing is milled from a solid billet of aluminium and is finished with a glass bead finish. The inner chassis is also made up of aluminium for robust support whilst the aluminium top panel is hand-brushed to a refined surface before being anodised to a high-gloss finish. The front panel consists of lustrous black acrylic, and accommodates the large-format graphic screen. Control is actioned via the supplied T+A F100 system remote control or T+S’s dedicated Control app, which can be downloaded for free from iTunes or the Android store.
The CALA SR is available now with a UK SRP of £2313.
