Chord Introduces BerTTi Stereo Power Amplifier

Chord brings ULTIMA topology into its affordable Table Top (TT) stereo power amplifier for £3,995.

Chord Electronics has launched its most affordable ULTIMA-technology stereo power amplifier to date called BerTTi (£3,995). The new power amp also introduces the company’s next-generation ULTIMA topology to the ground-breaking Table Top (TT) range, home to the Hugo TT 2 DAC/pre/head amp and Hugo M Scaler upscaler (pictured above).

BerTTi is a fully balanced 75-watt stereo power amplifier benefitting from the latest dual-feed-forward error-correction topology. BerTTi directly replaces its predecessor, the TToby, and expands the ULTIMA-topology range of amplifiers designed by Chord Electronics owner and founder John Franks. Franks’ advanced ULTIMA error-correction technology monitors and immediately corrects signals before the output stage for astonishing accuracy.

BerTTi features both balanced and unbalanced inputs, high-quality gold-plated loudspeaker outputs, plus a 10 A IEC power inlet. Further features include two modified power supplies for increased performance, plus an additional auxiliary power rail for the front end, which provides extra voltage to drive the custom-made MOSFETs.

The new ULTIMA-tech BerTTi, when combined with the resolving power of the award-winning Hugo TT 2 DAC/preamp ($6,725), claims new levels of sonic performance from a small system. The addition of the Hugo M Scaler ($5,650) upscaler, with the ability to upscale audio to 705.6 kHz, 16x CD’s native resolution, makes the three-box system quite compelling.

Speaking about the new BerTTi stereo power amplifier, John Franks said: “BerTTi utilizes our proprietary ULTIMA technology which continuously monitors the electrical and thermal performance parameters for each of the MOSFET power devices used within this advanced design. This additional circuitry adds an extra layer of control in the power components’ topology that lowers all distortion modes when compared to ordinary high-quality amplifier designs. BerTTi can drive loudspeakers, from bookshelf types to the hardest-to-drive floorstanders without difficulty.”
