Five years on since Chord Electronics launched its Ultima tech, the most accomplished amplifier topology in its history, the Kent company has now applied this approach to a new integrated amplifier.

Designed by company founder and chief engineer John Franks, the Ultima Integrated is rated at 125W and features the brand’s latest dual-feed-forward error-correction topology.

Each of the amp’s four sets of inputs (including a dedicated set of fully balanced sockets) is individually buffered and filtered against potential ingress from radio frequency interference.

The new Ultima Integrated sports the same 28mm thick front panel as its Ultima Pre 3 preamp sibling, with its metalwork precision-machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminium, including its signature Integra Legs.

Available in jett black and argent silver with optional highly polished black acrylic side panels, the Ultima Integrated costs £8,500.
