Innovative clean power technologies and custom components within Chord's stereo power amplifiers are what have propelled the SPM series to legendary status in and outside the recording studio. Their ability to instantaneously react and deliver sheer power, whilst maintaining transparency and incredibly low distortion leaves you with nothing but a masterpiece.ce point perfectly clean. Magnetic current sensors provide electronic shutdown.
Featuring double-height dimensions, the amp was conceived due to demand for a larger stereo power amplifier. Using the latest low-distortion amplifier circuitry with Chord's own proprietary lateral structure dual-die MOSFETs, naturally, the SPM 5000 Mk II is able to drive extremely difficult loudspeaker loads with clarity and precision. It offers a substantial 560 watts into 8 ohms and is comfortable driving larger loudspeakers, including those with challenging loads.
The flagship stereo power amp contains two 4kW high-frequency switch-mode power supplies with Chords's unique dynamic coupling techniques. Like its amplification siblings, the technology is complemented by a large bank of energy-storage capacitors that are ‘recharged’ by the power supply, giving the amplifier huge reserves of headroom. Unobtrusive protection circuitry constantly monitors the amplifier status and magnetic current-sensing will shut down the SPM 5000 Mk II in the event of a short circuit. Balanced and unbalanced connections are available along with two pairs of loudspeaker outputs with gold-plated connections
