I love music, and it can be therapeutic, especially after a long day of hard work. And for your listening pleasure, Chord Electronics, UK has come out with the CPA8000, Chord’s most definitive 2-channel preamp. The CPA8000 comes with a dual-mono design, with a separate power supply for each channel, setting the noise floor at 135dB. The THD is specified as 0.002% from 20Hz to 20kHz. The input apparatus has four balanced and four unbalanced pairs, along with three balanced and three unbalanced output setup. You can also opt for a balanced AV Bypass input to feed volume directly to an external A/V processor. The CPA8000 is priced at $50,000 apiece.
