Chord ULTIMA PRE 3

Ultima 3 pre audiovenue

The Chord ULTIMA PRE 3 is an all-new ground-up-design preamplifier containing the very latest proprietary power supply technology and the latest circuit design.

Built from the ground up, the UTLIMA PRE 3 takes advantage of the very latest developments in advanced low-distortion power supplies.

These advanced devices offer exceptionally low noise and outstanding amplifier operation.

Coupled with their latest design developments, the PRE 3 offers new levels of preamplifier performance.

The UTLIMA PRE 3 is equipped with five analogue inputs (two balanced and three unbalanced) all of which benefit from individual buffering and are selectively filtered against potential ingress from radio frequency interference.

Externally, the PRE 3 benefits from a completely redesigned aesthetic with a central circular power sphere flanked by a new volume control and balance/AV bypass selector, both of which benefit from a new ergonomic knob design.

Additional features include an AV bypass, plus a 5 V charging USB Type-A port.

Brand

Chord Electronics

Chord Electronics Chord Electronics first took flight from the aviation world, where engineering without limits means uncompromising standards. This concept designed by company owner John Franks has helped shaped our philosophy since the company’s inception in 1989. Their first amplifiers were supplied to the BBC, followed by world-leading studios including Abbey Road, Sony Music (New York) and later, The Royal Opera House. Chord Electronics reputation within the professional world generated demand for a domestic range encompassing the design, engineering and build standards demanded of the finest pro equipment. Today, they apply proprietary technologies to all of their British-made products and proudly deliver studio-grade audio performance across the entire Chord range.
