  • Audio Research Reference 10 Limited Edition Pre Amplifier

     

    REFERENCE 10

    LINE STAGE PREAMPLIFIER

    In 2010 we announced the Reference Anniversary preamplifier, a special limited edition product commemorating our 40th anniversary. It was acclaimed by many as the finest preamplifier available and a fitting tribute to all of the classic Audio Research products that were introduced during the forty years that preceded it. That we would only accept new orders for this special product during the anniversary year surprised almost everyone, but we considered the limited time frame appropriate. Since that time, we have learned a few things, and the result of that knowledge led to the development of the Reference 10. Included are critically chosen new components, proprietary custom-made capacitors, wiring, and new connectors that cumulatively provide a level of performance never before achieved. Key Audio Research design traits remain: The signal path is fully discrete, all-tube, pure Class-A, with zero feedback. Other attributes and choices remain, too: Each unit is completely hand-soldered and hand-constructed in our Minnesota facility using the finest materials, with major components such as custom transformers, plated-through circuit boards, and casework sourced locally. All engineering is performed in-house.

  • Chord SPM 5000 MKII....... 560W Reference Power Amplifier

    The SPM 5000 MkII is our range-topping stereo power amplifier and our most powerful stereo amplifier to date. 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 our own proprietary lateral structure dual-die MOSFETs, naturally, the SPM5000 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. Now in MkII form, numerous engineering refinements have been made to increase its sonic performance, flexibility and lifespan.

    The flagship stereo power amp contains two of our 4kW high-frequency switch-mode power supplies with our 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.

  • Chord SPM1400 MKII Mono Power Amplifier (Each)

    With Chord Electronics Limited’s considerable experience in the design and manufacture of the world’s best consumer and professional amplifiers, we are proud to announce our latest design of power amplifier utilising our high frequency power supply techniques and our own proprietary lateral structure dual-die MOSFETs. This amplifier provides all the benefits of mono amplification whilst retaining all of the much loved qualities of Chord Electronics amplifiers. Improvements in capacitor technology have boosted secondary reservoir levels to 94,000 µF storing over 381 Joules of energy. A “Superamp” in all but dimensions, this amplifier is for those whose goal is direct comparison between live and recorded music, a sentiment echoed by reviewer and customers alike.

    Hi-Fi News magazine recently praised the latest-generation SPM 1400MkII mono power amp in its September 2013 edition. The issue features an in-depth review of our new mono power amp and sums up by saying: “Beautiful to behold by both eye and ear, Chord’s MkII SPM 1400 monoblocks offer spectacular insight into music. Majoring on clarity, timing and delivering natural realism like few other power amps at any price, they tick every box in the audiophile hi-fi check list. Neutral, detailed and with breathtaking resolution.” Hi-Fi News gave the ‘1400MkII their ‘Highly Commended’ award. You can download the full review below.

    A high current mains 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.

  • Audio Research Reference 75 SE Power Amplifier ... take me home

    Our Nicks' absolute favourite product of all time, a product he says he would struggle to ever part with. Tattslotto or not.

    To sing its praises higher again, even the reviewer from Stereophile wouldnt let it leave his system. As quoted below.

    "John Atkinson has said that there is no greater praise a reviewer can give a component than to purchase it for use in his own reference system. And although I loved my time with the Reference 75, and felt it equaled or exceeded the performance of my Reference 110 overall, I still love my Ref 110. With the decline of the financial-services industry in the recent meltdown, I'm earning a fraction of what I did 10 years ago, even as I have one child beginning college this year and another not far behind. I can't justify the luxury of purchasing a new stereo amplifier this year."

Due to a new magnetic structure, this is the highest output Colibri he has ever built. The motor mass is the same with the same amount of turns in the coils. This provides more output, more dynamics, better staging and 40db separation between channels.  The cantilever is 4 mm a bit longer than the other Colibri models again for better dynamics and bass response. The higher output means the music comes out of an inky black background.

  • Chord SPM1200 MKII

    The SPM 1200 MkII is widely regarded as our most famous power amp and one that neatly combines great performance and fine value for money. The 350-watt powerhouse offers huge reserves of instantly delivered, precisely controlled power.

    Using the latest low-distortion amplifier circuitry with our own proprietary lateral-structure dual-die MOSFETs (16 x 150 watt devices per channel), the SPM1200MkII is able to drive more difficult loudspeaker loads effortlessly, with clarity and precision.

    At the heart of the amplifier is our own 2KW high-frequency switch-mode power supply with our unique dynamic coupling. The technique allows instantaneous power to be taken from both power rails simultaneously when the music demands, giving perfect balance and dynamic precision.

    The technology is complemented by a large bank of energy-storage capacitors that are ‘recharged’ by the power supply many thousands of times a second, giving the amplifier huge reserves and the ability to react without strain, to any signal.

    The amplifier offers both balanced and unbalanced inputs (two of each), plus a pair of high-current loudspeaker outputs with gold-plated connections. Simplicity of operation is retained with a single power button to switch the SPM1200Mk II out of standby.
