  • 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 SPM 6000 MKII.....750W Reference Mono Power Amplifier (Each)

    As one of two exceptional monoblock options in our flagship Reference range, the SPM 6000 MkII is a no-compromise 750-watt mono amplifier (against 1,000 watts in its SPM 14000 MkII sibling). Along with its 14000 stablemate, the SPM 6000 MkII is one of the largest mono amplifiers we have ever built and its performance is spectacular.

    Having a dedicated mono power amplifier for each channel allows the benefits of the Chord approach to amplification to be fully exploited when used as part of a pre/power system.

    The SPM 6000 MkII uses three of our 5th-generation 4kW power supply units with our unique dynamic coupling techniques, run in a parallel configuration, but working individually. 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.

    Using the latest low-distortion amplifier circuitry with our own proprietary lateral structure dual-die MOSFETs, the SPM 6000 MkII offers incredible grip and control and is capable of taming even the most challenging loudspeaker; only the SPM 14000 MkII offers more power. 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.

  • Chord CPA 5000 Reference Pre Amplifier

    The CPA 5000 is one of two ultra-high-performance models in the flagship Reference range, representing our finest preamp engineering. The CPA 5000 offers a substantially larger chassis than our Standard Series preamps and contains the latest proprietary ultra-high-frequency power supply. When combined with our ultra-low-noise circuitry, the technologies give the CPA 5000 an incredible noise floor performance of below -130dB.

    The CPA 5000 is highly flexible, too. It offers four pairs of fully balanced inputs, four pairs unbalanced inputs, plus two completely independent tape/recording loops. Each input has six levels of gain that can be individually selected to prevent large changes in volume when switching between inputs and all settings are stored via a microprocessor, even if power is removed. The CPA 5000 also includes two low-distortion, low-noise front panel headphone outputs to exploit the full potential of today’s high-quality headphones and give added flexibility for late-night or personal listening.

    Also included, is fully balanced A/V bypass circuitry for direct connection to A/V processors, 12V remote triggering outputs at the rear of the unit to activate power amplifiers or A/V processors on power-up, plus Chord’s legendary aircraft-grade solid aluminium casework.

  • Audio Research Ref160M "The best amplifier in the world"

    Every now and then one gets the privilege of being in custody of something that is a work of absolute beauty and performance ... having a pair of these on demonstration is the High Fidelity equivalent of a violinist being rendered with a Stradivarius by a patron.

    Putting them into the Sonus faber Aida 2 system immediately bought the musicians into the room ... I have a particular opera recording that was sold in by Hartleys in Melbourne in 1957 that I procured in a lost corner of a curio store from a deceased estate. Playing this with these amplifiers Puccini and la Boheme were born again in the space ... time travel is a reality with a system like this ... yes we cried a little.
