The Kula is the first integrated amplifier to grace Mola Mola’s range and is rated at 2x 150W into 8ohm

Distributed in the UK by Sound Design Distribution, Mola Mola is perhaps best known for its upmarket Makua/Kaluga pre/power amplifier combination, costing £7.5k/£10k respectively, which helped to redefine all that was possible from analogue Class D amplification when it arrived on the hi-fi scene in 2017. Now the Dutch-based company has introduced its first stereo integrated amplifier called Kula, which combines the company’s tech know-how to deliver a claimed 2x 150W into 8ohm from its slender chassis measuring just 420 x 110 x 370mm (WxHxD).

Analogue connectivity includes three pairs of balanced and three pairs of single-ended inputs. There’s the opportunity to include the company’s own phono stage (£5,999) and modular DAC section (£1,799), too. The comprehensive MM/MC phono stage has independent adjustable settings, while the 32-bit DAC stage (the same version as used in the company’s standalone Tambaqui network-attached DAC priced at £9,999) accommodates up to five digital inputs including USB, optical, AES, Roon-ready endpoint and Bluetooth.

About Mola Mola: Mola-Mola is the brainchild of Bruno Putzeys, the wunderkind of Class-D technology, originator of Universal class-D (UcD) in 2001 while at Phillips and as chief tech guru at Hypex, responsible for the development of its game-changing NCore Class-D amplifier technology. Presented in strikingly distinctive rippled all-aluminium enclosures, the Mola Mola range includes the Makua pre-amplifier, Tambaqui DAC, Kula integrated amplifier and Kaluga power amplifier, as well as modular phono stage and DAC board options.
