When routing and attenuating signals, a Chord preamplifier both has flexible input and output options, and delivers the purest audio experience with absolutely no colouration and minimal distortion.
The CPA 5000 is one of two ultra-high-performance models in the flagship Reference range, representing Chord's finest preamp engineering. The CPA 5000 offers a substantially larger chassis than their Standard Series preamps and contains the latest proprietary ultra-high-frequency power supply. When combined with Chord's ultra-low-noise circuitry, the technologies give the CPA 5000 an incredible noise floor performance of below -130dB.
The CPA 5000 is highly flexible, too. It offers four pairs of fully balanced inputs, four pairs unbalanced inputs, plus two completely independent tape/recording loops. Each input has six levels of gain that can be individually selected to prevent large changes in volume when switching between inputs and all settings are stored via a microprocessor, even if power is removed. The CPA 5000 also includes two low-distortion, low-noise front panel headphone outputs to exploit the full potential of today’s high-quality headphones and give added flexibility for late-night or personal listening.
Also included, is fully balanced A/V bypass circuitry for direct connection to A/V processors, 12V remote triggering outputs at the rear of the unit to activate power amplifiers or A/V processors on power-up, plus Chord’s legendary aircraft-grade solid aluminium casework.
