Chord Electronics new SPM 1050 MkII power amplifier, first unveiled at High End 2016, Munich, is now available worldwide. The new MkII version directly replaces the original and introduces the latest Chord amplifier technology, plus some key aesthetic improvements.

The latest-spec MkII model offers reduced output distortion for even greater transparency and fidelity, plus improvements to capacitance for cleaner power delivery. The second- generation version also includes enhanced isolation on the mains transformer to reduce interference and enhance sonic performance. In keeping with the original, the SPM 1050 MkII uses Chords low-distortion amplifier circuitry and features four proprietary lateral- structure dual-die MOSFETs per channel (eight in total), enabling even the most demanding loudpspeakers to be driven with clarity and precision.

The SPM 1050 MkII offers both balanced XLR and RCA phono inputs, plus two pairs of loudspeaker outputs with gold-plated connections. A single power button offers operational simplicity from stand-by mode and the amplfiers status is indicated on the faceplate by a simple two-LED sequence showing power and relay functions. The casework is luxuriously Chord: machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminium it offers a stunning aesthetic plus an enviably rigid environment to house the electronics and dampen unwanted vibration.

Aesthetically, the MkII version includes a new vented aluminium lid, akin to the DSX1000 streamer, plus a new piano-black acrylic side-panel option giving the power amp a fresh, contemporary look. Additional options include a choice of finish for the established Integra leg system supports, these include: nickel, satin-black anodised and aluminium.
