At the High End 2019, Chord Electronics had presented the "Ultima" (1400 watts into 4 ohms, almost 90 kg, 36,000 Euros). Now the British electronics specialist is launching two smaller mono and two stereo power amplifiers. Prices start at 7100 Euros for the Ultima 6 model with 2x350 watts (4 ohms), and go up to 21,900 Euros for the Ultima 2 with 1x1300 watts into 4 ohms. The matching "small" preamp is called Ultima Pre 2 and costs 15,900 Euros. It offers 4 pairs of XLR and 4 pairs of RCA inputs, all purely analog. The outputs are also available in XLR and Cinch. Two headphones can be connected via large jack.
