Chord Electronics versatile CPM 2800 MkII stereo integrated amplifier is differentiated from its two integrated stablemates by the implementation of an advanced DAC with multiple digital inputs. The CPM 2800 MkII is quite a proposition, as it features both our proprietary amplifier technologies and Chord’s proprietary FPGA DAC technology in one unit!
Now in Mk II form, the CPM 2800 MkII adds the FPGA-based D/A convertor from the award-winning 2Qute DAC, to create an amplifier of unrivalled flexibility. The amp integrates our proprietary DAC technology into an affordable yet high-end solution and introduces a high-performance Spartan 6 FPGA chip to the DAC stage, with astonishingly low distortion levels of 0.0003%.
Bluetooth-enabled, (via Chord’s high-quality custom-designed aptX Bluetooth receiver), the CPM 2800 MkII offers support for up to 32-bit/384kHz audio via BNC coax and USB, plus 24-bit/192kHz over optical. DSD64 is supported on all inputs and DSD128 is supported via coax or USB (all via DoP). The amp features a Class 2 USB input which has been galvanically isolated for greater sonic performance; this has been achieved using a novel technique which allows for very high data rates of up to 384kHz; the input is driverless on Apple and Android devices, with (ASIO included) drivers for Windows.
Further features include a large, easy-to-read front panel screen, heavy-duty gold-plated binding posts, remote control, an A/V bypass input, plus Chord’s legendary aircraft-grade aluminium chassis and casework.
