Interesting new release from Mola Mola: the Kula integrated amplifier ($13,800), with Roon enabled DAC ($8,200) and phono ($3,000) as optionals, total $25,000.



Looks like a Makua front with an added nCore amplifier.

Mola Mola: the Kula integrated amplifier





Beautiful.  Thanks for posting.  Have been dreaming about this integrated since it was first proposed (years ago) and in the meantime collected my current gear (which is going to stay as is).  They certainly put a lot of technology and good sound into a small package. 

Roon / Mola Mola Tambaqui / Kubala-Sosna XLR / Mola Mola Kaluga / KS biwire / B&W 803 D3

+ essentials:  UpTone JS-2 LPS >> Sonore Optical Module > UpTone EtherREGEN
