kemela has on demonstation a very wide range of speakers (one of the largest selections of KEF speakers in the South East), turntables, and home audio equipment for you to audition without obligation in our two real-sized/sounding showrooms. We are by appointment and you will need to call in advance to set up an audition, so you can have one-on one time without waiting, and we can make sure we have gear warmed up and ready. Many times we can accomodate you the same day but out of state visitors definitely must call in advance.

You might be new to high fidelity home audio and looking for a great first turntable, an experienced music listener wanting an impactful upgrade, or wanting to add digital streaming and network audio technologies to your existing system. We offer not only award winning products at many price levels, but also the technical support and responsive after sales service so you can keep enjoying your music. Auditions are typically 90-120 mins and are conducted in a non-pressure manner.

Jan 14th 2019 - Cyrus ONE HD - Available now from kemela

Cyrus Audio's latest stylish high tech 100 watt integrated amplifier includes an advanced 32-bit DAC, MM phonostage, aptX® HD Bluetooth, AV bypass and two other analog inputs, and a superb headphone amplifier. Core is a linear power supply using a high spec toroidal transformer feeding the 4th generation Hybrid Class D design main amplifier to really drive just about any speakers you are likely to pair with it (no problem driving my Wilson Benesch Discovery speakers). Along with the powerful bass comes a great soundstage and dynamic range that is truly impressive from an amplifier of this size and price. The SID - Speaker Impedance Detection cleverly calibrates the amplifier to deliver a consistent sound across speakers with differing frequency dependent impedance curves. Unusually there is a separate class A/B headphone amplifier that uses the full ability of the large toroidal transformer to power the most demanding headphones offering performance on par with that from a dedicated headphone amplifier. Along with asynchronous USB 2.0 up to 32/192 and DSD128, there are 24/192 Optical Toslink and Coaxial SPDIF digital inputs. There is a preamp output and the system is conveniently controlled by a Bluetooth control app(Apple and Android). The rather nice illuminated Cyrus iR14 remote - which can learn functions of up to 2 other remotes - is an optional extra. More details
