One model down from the Chord Electronics flagship monoblock ULTIMA power amplifier is the ULTIMA 2, a single-enclosure power amplifier that offers effortless power delivery combined with the ULTIMA cosmetic and mechanical refinements.

Product Description

As part of the Chord Electronics 30th-anniversary celebration in 2019, they implemented the flagship ULTIMA amplifier topology into a new mono power amplifier, Ultima 2. First unveiled in October 2018, the ULTIMA amplifier topology has trickled down into the new ULTIMA 2 mono power amp, which shares the same Chord Electronics DNA as in its range-topping cousin.

The 750-watt ULTIMA 2 is a direct replacement for the SPM 6000 MKII and forms part of our flagship Reference range. The amp has been given a remodeled fascia featuring John Franks’ latest design. The precision CNC-machined fascia is made from aircraft-grade aluminum and features a reassuringly solid 28-mm thick front panel, enhanced by a recessed spherical polycarbonate power button that illuminates for standby and operation modes; a discreet and hidden front panel switch neatly located in the vertical split line enables the lighting to be dimmed.

Like all of Chord Electronics’ full-size and Reference range amplifiers, the new ULTIMA 2 is available in a choice of Jett Black or Argent Silver finishes. The amplifiers can also be specified with either the famous stackable Integra Leg system in Jett Black, Argent Silver, or Nickel finishes or the highly polished black acrylic side block option. The amplifier’s rear panel contains both balanced and unbalanced connections, high-quality loudspeaker terminals, a 12V trigger, and a C-19-type IEC.

HiFi-News
“If the Ultima flagship is a costly ‘technology demonstrator’ then these Ultima 2 offsprings are a textbook illustration of trickledown in action. Frankly, if you were enthralled by the debut Ultimas and have been saving ever since then cash in your chips now, buy the Ultima 2s instead and spend the excess £40k on new floorstanders and music. Yes, the Ultima Pre 2 and Ultima 2 really are that good.”

Sound Stage Australia
The Ultima 2 monoblocks are beautifully styled (even with, or because of, the visual pyrotechnics that emanate from within) and superbly built. Most importantly, they are highly advanced in terms of the circuitry, engineering and execution; ingredients that often – but not always – translate to excellent performance too.
