The new ULTIMA 5, which incorporates the latest-generation ULTIMA circuit topology, is destined to become a future classic. The ULTIMA 5 has the best performance-to-price ratio, with 350W of power capable of driving all but the most demanding loudspeakers. The ULTIMA 5 has taken the SPM 1200 MK II's inherent qualities and pushed them to the next level. They have been able to redeem supremely fast and powerful performance, with an extraordinarily high peak output current. The speed at which dynamic peaks can be delivered, bringing astonishing dynamics, timing accuracy, and, as a result, unrivalled musicality, by implementing their advanced dual-feed-forward error-correction topology incorporating their advanced concepts in ultra-high-frequency power supplies. ULTIMA is a unique amplifier architecture with outstanding performance, and it is one of the world's most advanced amplifier technologies.
