Chord ULTIMA 5 350W Power Amplifier

The Evolution of an Amplification Legend

The Chord ULTIMA 5 Power Amplifier is built to deliver sheer power while maintaining transparency with low distortion.

ULTIMA 5 is an evolution of SPM 1200 MK II (the definitive Chord Electronics amplifier), incorporating the latest generation of ULTIMA circuit topology. This amp delivers an impressive 350 watts at a reasonable price-point. Additional improvements include advanced dual-feed-forward error-correction and incorporation of Chord Electronics' advanced ultra-high-frequency power supplies. These improvements result in ULTIMA 5 delivering extraordinarily high peak output current, bringing astonishing dynamics and timing accuracy.

In addition to performance improvements, ULTIMA 5 boasts a chassis redesign featuring John Franks’ latest aesthetic, the precision CNC-machined fascia is made from aircraft-grade aluminum and features a reassuringly solid 28-mm thick front panel, enhanced by a recessed spherical polycarbonate power button that illuminates for standby and operation modes; a discreet, hidden front panel switch, located in the vertical split line, enables dimmable lighting.

Ultima 5's rear panels contain both balanced and unbalanced connections, high-quality loudspeaker terminals, a 12 V trigger and a C-19-type IEC.
