New partnership between Audirvāna and Kalista


Press release | The two French HiFi brands, each with a reputation for excellence in their field, are joining forces for the launch of Kalista's DreamPlay X to offer customers a digital experience that matches the product's sound and aesthetic quality.


Partnership between Audirvāna and Kalista

DreamPlay X owners will have free access to Audirvāna* software to extend the digital experience of the product by allowing them to listen to music from their computer with uncompromising playback quality, using a unique code provided to each customer, giving them an Audirvāna Origin license and a two-year subscription to Audirvāna Studio.

Beyond the business agreement, the two brands have been working together for several months to ensure that the DreamPlay X is recognized by the Audirvāna software and that the integration is as seamless as possible for users. Audirvāna thus completes the already numerous functionalities of the DreamPlay X whose promise is to be "The universal audio-digital source".


Partnership between Audirvāna and Kalista

Damien Plisson, creator of Audirvāna explains, "On a computer with Audirvāna, you can easily create your playlists and favorites by picking from your local music and a connected streaming service. It's a very convenient tool to do that. Audirvāna also gives customization possibilities through oversampling algorithms or the ability to integrate acoustic corrections".

Technically, both products communicate through the UPnP wireless protocol. This demanding solution in its integration remains very universal and above all without any compression or resolution limitation. "For a product with the quality and requirements of the DreamPlay X, it is important to multiply the possibilities of use for the customers without ever giving up the sound quality" says Jean-Marie Clauzel, Associate Director of Kalista/Metronome technology.

According to Damien Plisson, this first unprecedented collaboration is destined to develop: "Without falling into proprietary protocols that are more restrictive and doomed to obsolescence, it demonstrates the value of working with hardware manufacturers to offer the best possible experience to users“.
