Chord Electronics Unveil New ULTIMA 2 and ULTIMA 3 Amplifiers
Chord Electronics has implemented its flagship ULTIMA amplifier topology into the Ultima 3 and Ultima 2 Mono Power Amplifiers.
First unveiled in October 2018, the new ULTIMA amplifier topology, is now more affordable than ever having trickled down into the new mono power amps, both of which share the same Chord Electronics DNA as in their range-topping cousin.
The new 750-watt ULTIMA 2 (£18,360 each) is a direct replacement for the SPM 6000 MKII and forms part of the company's flagship Reference range; the smaller 480-watt ULTIMA 3 (£11,000 each) replaces the SPM 1400 MKII and sits in the full-sized range.
Like all of Chord Electronics' Full Size and Reference range amplifiers, the new ULTIMA 3 and ULTIMA 2 are available in a choice of Jett Black, or Argent Silver finishes. The amplifiers can also be specified with either the stackable Integra Leg system in Jett Black, Argent Silver or Nickel finishes or the highly polished black acrylic side block option.
Each mono amplifier is painstakingly hand-built at the riverside Kent factory, The Pumphouse, over several days, with each build overseen by a dedicated engineer. Chord Electronics' renowned aircraft-grade solid aluminium casework offers a reassuringly high-end and entirely non-resonant enclosure for the electronics.
The Chord ULTIMA 2 and ULTIMA 3 mono amplifiers have an incredible 32 proprietary MOSFET power devices which demand the most advanced and refined drive circuitry, suitably devoid of sound-degrading components.
