Chord Electronics has introduced a new styling alternative to its full-size component ranges, Reference and Chord. All double- and quad-height products* in Chord Electronics’ two upper ranges can now be ordered with high-quality solid black acrylic side panels as an alternative to Chord’s traditional Integra Leg System; Chord’s single-height products** will also be available with the new side panels later in 2017.
The side panels are typically high quality as befits Chord Electronics’ construction standards. Each block is precision-machined from solid black acrylic and then machine-polished to a piano black finish.
The new aesthetic takes inspiration from Bauhaus styling and gives useful flexibility when placing equipment in differing environments, offering a softer look which reflects home décor. Compatible products already in service can also be retro-fitted with the panels as a chargeable factory upgrade.
*The following models can be ordered now with the solid black acrylic side panel options:
CD playback: Red Reference Mk III; Integrated amplifiers: CPM 2650; CPM 3350 and CPM 2800 MKII (with DAC); Preamps: CPA 5000 and CPA 8000; Power amps (mono): SPM 1400 MK II; SPM 6000 MK II and SPM 14000 MK II; Power amps (stereo): SPM 1200 MK II and SPM 1050 MK II
**The following models will be available later in 2017 with the side panel options:
Streaming: DSX 1000; Preamps: CPA 2500 and CPA 3000; Power amps (stereo): SPM 650
