Kalista DreamPlay One CD Player

DreamPlay ONE is the legendary Kalista CD Turntable equipped with an internal powerful DAC offering an unmistakable musical experience. 

The DreamPlay One is designed for those audio-enthusiasts who appreciate exceptional sound combined with gorgeous design, high-end quality, modern functionalities and great ease of use.

The DreamPlay ONE is not only about music, passion for sound, design and elegance. It is also about the listener's feelings, sensations and dreams. 

The ultimate CD Player. No more need for an external digital to analog converter, since it embeds its own conversion processor, for the most musical sound reproduction.

DreamPlay ONE is 100 % designed and built by hand in Metronome’s workshops based in South-West of France featuring a massive aluminium chassis, methacrylate 60 mm thick transparent parts, stainless steel feet.

The first Kalista Integrated CD Turntable DreamPlay ONE has a pickup mechanism PHILIPS CD PRO and a high-end internal D/A converter with 2 conversion chips (AK4497) in dual mono mode delivering that excellent precision and aerial sound reproduction that defines the analogue savoir-faire of Métronome.

  • Tripode Stand: The DreamPlay devices are made to fit together and can be superimposed. All of them can be put onto their superb furniture, available in 2 shapes and 3 sizes. Customisations on request.
  • Silent Bases: Square or triangle-shaped, the optional silent bases are essential components to get rid of vibrations when using your DreamPlay.
  • Power Supply: The famous external power supply equips all DreamPlay devices. For Kalista, Elektra is synonymous with strength and precision of a power supply. This is about feeding very demanding equipment with a perfectly filtered and rigorously regulated current.
  • Exquisite remote, carved in massive aluminium.
  • The Cristal top-cover will protect the mechanism and lens.
  • Available in Black Pearl and Diamond Finish

Silent Base
Provided with the Kalista Ultimate Signature version, the new Silent Base is now available in 2 thicknesses (40 & 60MM). It gives a huge sonic improvement with more silence between notes, incredible soundstage and dynamic contrast reproduction. The platform is made from Perspex and stainless steel feel and ball system. This architecture allows free movement on the horizontal plane and improves vibration isolation. The DreamPlay One's main unit is sited on top to the Silent Base. Both of them are linked by the silent base conical feet.

Elektra Power Supply
This new Elektra PSU was designed in  2018 to improve the performance of your CD turntable. It allows removing most of the EMI/RF pollution coming from the power supply by using a special AC filter especially designed by Metronome. The DreamPlay One is totally isolated from the rest of the system by 16 independent regulation lines. All vibrations and interferences from transformers cannot reach the CD drive and the use of totally separated regulations for the different stages (display, servo control, motor, digital output stage) has great impact on low noise level and silence reproduction performance.

The touchscreen can also be put OFF by a selector at the rear of the the drive unit: all electrical noises coming from the display is then removed and the sound is one step better.
