Karan Acoustics KA I 180 Mk2


This is the latest version of our famous integrated amplifier and it completely reflects our position of what good sound should be like, sacrificing nothing to quality, but in a more modest package for situations when space is at a premium. Also, we recognize the fact that not everybody needs, or can afford, the most powerful of amplifiers we make. The KA I 180 Mk2 is the ultimate Integrated Amplifier. New design rated at 180 watts/channel into 8 ohms, or 300 watts/channel into 4 ohms offering superb control, authority, finesse and pure natural sound. Using new technologies developed since the introduction of the first KA I 180, new integrated provides much more sonic transparency, more accuracy and more music than old version. Definitely, the latest version has warmth and naturalness that must be heard to be believed. For even better sound you should try with our pre/power combinations.
