Chord ULTIMA 3 Mono Power Amplifier
The Chord ULTIMA 3 Mono Power Amplifier is available for demonstration in our Hull store by request.
Chord Electronics has implemented its flagship ULTIMA amplifier topology into the Ultima 3 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, which share the same Chord Electronics DNA as in its range-topping cousin.
The 480-watt ULTIMA 3 (£11,000 each) replaces the SPM 1400 MKII.
The Chord Ultima 3 have been given a remodelled fascia featuring John Franks' latest design. The precision CNC-machined fascia is made from aircraft-grade aluminium and features a reassuringly solid 28-mm thick front panel, enhanced by a recessed spherical polycarbonate power button that illuminates for standby and operation modes; a discreet and hidden front panel switch neatly located in the vertical split line enables the lighting to be dimmed.
Like all of Chord Electronics' Full Size and Reference range amplifiers, the new ULTIMA 3 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.
The amplifiers' rear panel contains both balanced and unbalanced connections, high-quality loudspeaker terminals, a 12V trigger and a C-19-type IEC.
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 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.
