The SPM 5000 MkII is Chord's most powerful stereo amplifier to date. Using the latest low distortion amplifier circuitry with their proprietary lateral structure dual-die MOSFETs the SPM 5000 MkII is able to drive extremely difficult loudspeaker loads with clarity and precision. Delivering a comfortable 560W rms into 8 ohms, and 1020W rms into 4, the SPM 5000 MkII will be the perfect accompaniment to most larger loudspeakers and can be used for stereo or as part of a multichannel system when combined with further amplification.
Chord Electronics has successfully implemented high frequency power supplies which operate at a much higher frequency than conventional power supplies and are therefore much better suited to high power applications. As a result Chord amplifiers are smaller and lighter, they run cooler, deliver more power and respond faster. Chord amplifiers feature lower distortion and an absolutely dead-quiet background. A high current filter ensures that the amplifier is shielded from disturbed mains as well as ensuring that the mains is untouched by emissions from the amplifier. The output from the power supply uses a truly innovative “Dynamic Coupling” technique whereby the positive and negative rails are mutually coupled by a strong magnetic flux. The result being that if a high demand is put on one rail, the energy required is actually drawn equally from both rails. This keeps the amplifier balanced dynamically and the reference point perfectly clean. Magnetic current sensors provide electronic shutdown.
