    FS: Chord amplifier pairing: CPA 2200 pre-amplifier & SPM 1200C power amplifier

    Both amps now sold.

    Selling my Chord amplifier combo: CPA 2200 pre-amplifier and SPM 1200C power amplifier.
    Both amps in excellent condition. Come with original packaging and accessories – remote, manuals, power cables. Both in brushed black finish.
    The sound could fairly be described as having very high resolution, yet still warm, smooth and listenable. Dynamics and slam are awesome, imaging especially realistic. Power: 2 x 470W RMS into 4Ω.
    Don’t just take my word for it, see glowing reviews here:

    “During one of the great orchestral crashes that punctuate the Nielsen Second Symphony that I was hearing in the Tivoli Concert Hall, played by the Danish Radio Symphony, the thought popped into my mind: 'This sounds just like the Chord amp - and no triode amp could do this.”
    Dr Robert E Greene, The Absolute Sound.

    "When compared with amplifiers often used for such purposes, the superior sound quality delivered by the Chord is an embarrassment to the competition... for greater control and an enhanced ability to drive speaker loads in the 4 ohm range at high power, the SPM 1200 is the logical choice"
    Martin Colloms, Hi-Fi News & Record Review.

    "It was only when the Chord had to be replaced that it dawned on me how much of the recording it transmitted. It was impossible to believe that there wasn't a direct line straight into the studio. It sailed through my standard torture tracks, concealing nothing and being consistently enlightening. Nothing is artificially spotlit, just precisely located in time and space, with not a foot wrong in timbre or tone, instrumental and vocal colours being maintained with marked integrity."
    Eric Braithwaite, Hi-Fi World.

    Update 03-01-12:
    The SPM power amp will not be available for the next few weeks as it is being returned to Chord for service. So the SPM amp will be sold in a JUST SERVICED condition along with the CPA preamp. I will update the ad again when the amp has returned from Chord.
