SPM 600 Power Amplifier
The SPM 600 amplifier measures in size, shape, style and simplicity the twin to the CPA 2200. Of course, it's heavier and produces more heat and therefore, in tandem, belongs under the preamp. The preamp's attention to detail and design go ditto for the amp. The SPM 600 amplifier's front panel is an 8.5mm-thick aluminum slab. Its Spartan grille sports an engraved black and gold logo, power-on button and indicating LED’s, plus two A/B speaker button selectors. Centered between rear mounted heat sinks are two pair of Tiffany gold-plated speaker terminals. Balanced XLR as well as RCA inputs are standard. A detachable IEC receptacle is, thoughtfully, employed here as well. This is a compact, beautifully constructed, well-finished and thought-out product.
