Chord ULTIMA 6 180W Power Amplifier

ULTIMA 6 is the most affordable next-generation ULTIMA stereo power amplifier

ULTIMA 6 is an evolution of the award winning SPM 1050 MK II. This 180-watt model boasts ultra-fast response and effortless power for astonishing dynamics, timing, and fidelity.

This amplifier includes Chord Electronics' latest circuitry and proprietary lateral-matched MOSFETs which share the same DNA as as the flagship and reference-level monos, yet benefits from greater practicality and affordability, due to a lower power output.

In addition to performance improvements, ULTIMA 6 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.
