The CPA 5000 Reference pre-amplifier features Chord's latest Ultra High Frequency power supplies, a completely re-designed short signal path, ultra low noise circuit and solid milled aluminum shielding to prevent RF interference. The result of these enhancements is an amazingly low noise floor - below -130dB! The functionality has been expanded to include: four pairs of fully balanced XLR inputs, four pairs of RCA unbalanced inputs, two completely independent tape/recording loops, six levels of gain which can be independently selected and stored for each input, and two low distortion, low noise headphone output jacks which are easily accessible on the front panel.
The signal detection indicators have been replaced with highly accurate VU meters. These give clear signal detection and level indication and can be easily enabled or disabled by a button on the front panel. As with all chord products each piece of metal work is machined from solid aluminum giving a superb rigid construction that gives unsurpassed vibration damping with stunning looks to match.
