The CPA 8000 is Chord's flagship preamp. It represents their best preamplifier to date and combined with their Reference power amplifiers, provides a world-class amplification solution with cutting edge proprietary technology. Featuring double-height dimensions, the CPA 8000 is the perfect partner to Chord's SPM 14000 MkII monoblock power amplifiers and benefits from a true dual-mono construction with separate ultra-high-frequency power supplies for each channel, to give the best possible channel separation. With the addition of their low-noise circuitry, noise floor performance has been improved to beyond -135dB.
 
The highly advanced CPA 8000 includes three pairs of fully balanced outputs and three unbalanced outputs; inputs include four unbalanced and four balanced with six-step gain adjustment, with selection made via the remote control or the distinctive fascia, which also uniquely features separate frequency EQ adjust controls for the left and right channels.
 
Internally, each of the power supplies and the sensitive volume, balance and EQ controls are surrounded by solid milled aluminium shielding to prevent RF interference. Fully balanced A/V bypass circuitry allows direct connection to A/V processors and further features include defeatable front panel VU meters with BBC ballistics, two low-distortion, low-noise front-panel headphone output jacks and 12V remote triggering outputs.
