Kismet Hybrid Integrated Amplifier
The Kismet Hybrid Integrated Amplifier
This design retains all of the virtues & technical specifications of the Candela and Kismet stereo amplifiers. Offering the best of both worlds, with a tube pre and a solid-state power stage, this integrated offers outstanding performance and great bang for the buck.
This Kismet Integrated has an external power supply, with each stage fed by its separate transformer stages. The amplification stage uses the same 600 + VA unit. Groneberg Quattro Reference cabling interconnects the separate power supply via gold-tipped XLR connectors.
The case employes the same aircraft aluminum billet machined process that we use on all Kismet electronics. However, this case is more time consuming to machine, and it takes a documented 14 hours to do so with the CNC machines. The time to build and finish a Kismet Integrated with all electronics etc., is another 16 hours. Thus, each Kismet Integrated has a total of at least 30 hours of production time!
As with all Odyssey gear, our integrated is 100 % hand made in the USA.
