The Chord Electronics CPA3000 pre amplifier offers several features over the CPA2500, including balanced inputs, VU meter and higher end performance, a perfect match for a Chord power amplifier.

The CPA3000 has in total four pairs of balanced style XLR inputs and three additional RCA inputs for unbalanced sources including a single tape loop available for playback and also to record from any of the connected sources.

The CPA3000 is a feature rich pre amplifier with fully balanced AV Bypass circuitry that allows for direct connection to an AV processor at full signal level, routing the signal directly from input to output avoiding the volume potentiometer. This gives a truly flexible system for the purest two channel stereo reproduction converting for use in a multichannel AV system with a simple press of a switch.

Cleverly situated under the main display, signal detection indicators have been replaced with highly accurate VU meters. These give both clear signal detection and accurate input level. Naturally via the front panel control, these may be selected or disabled as required. Remote triggering outputs are available at the rear of the unit to activate power amplifiers or AV processors. These are active as soon as power is applied via the rear switch.

Using similar technology as the highly successful CPA5000 reference pre-amplifier the stunning CPA3000 also features a high frequency switch mode power supply and ultra low noise circuitry to give the very best noise floor performance.

The CPA3000 in common with other Chord Electronics has impressive detail resolution and speed. Combining strong dynamics with a superb silky high end the CPA3000 is a mighty contender at the upper end of the market.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
