Chord Electronics CPM 2800 MkII is a versatile, stereo integrated amplifier is differentiated from its two integrated stablemates by the implementation of an advanced DAC with multiple digital inputs. Chord’s CPM 2800 MkII is quite a proposition, as it features both our proprietary amplifier technologies and our proprietary FPGA DAC technology in one unit!
Now in Mk II form, Chord’s 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), Chord’s 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.
