These amplifiers sell new for $29,000 for the pair. Lightning fast, with bass authority and midrange presence to rival tubes.
Hi-Fi News magazine praised the latest-generation SPM 1400MkII mono power amp in its September 2013 edition. The issue features an in-depth review of our new mono power amp and sums up by saying: “Beautiful to behold by both eye and ear, Chord’s MkII SPM 1400 monoblocks offer spectacular insight into music. Majoring in clarity, timing and delivering natural realism like few other power amps at any price, they tick every box in the audiophile hi-fi checklist. Neutral, detailed and with breathtaking resolution.” Hi-Fi News gave the ‘1400MkII their ‘Highly Commended’ award.
HUGE POWER RESERVES FOR ULTIMATE CONTROL AND SLAM
Many high-quality amplifiers use Bipolar output devices because they sound better than MOSFETS. Chord believed that, theoretically, MOSFETS should be the best sounding output devices. However, the best MOSFETS available did not perform anywhere near the theoretical capability. So Chord engineers designed their own and had them custom built.
