Our wonderful Level 3 system features the CPA 5000 preamplifier and the SPM 1200 MkII stereo amplifier.
When outstanding sound quality in terms of natural timbre, resolution, ultra-low noise floor and control are desired without, dare we say, ultimate power levels, this system provides a stunning, hair raising sonic performance. Of course at 350 watts, and with Chord's trademark ability to effortlessly drive difficult speaker loads, the SPM 1200 Mk II will be more than sufficient for most applications.
Partner the amplification with Chord's DAVE DAC or Red Standard CD player and the highly recommended Spendor SP2/3R2 loudspeakers as shown below, and you have a wonderful system you really should go and hear.

I heard nothing but good vibrations in this room. The overall sound was very easy to enjoy, marked by a full bottom-end and a good sense of space.

This room was another great place to sit back and jam out to your fave tunes.
