Copland CTA 520 Power Amplifier

Post by p8balls on Tue Aug 22, 2017 10:22 pm

Good day to all,

I bought this on behalf of my brother, who has moved on to bigger and better gear (we all have this, its called upgrade-titis). It was bought off a very respectable seller here on hifi4sale (his equipment are all tip top in condition, big up to the man) and is in mint condition. I swapped it into my system for a listen and this review sings truth on the sound:

Summary from UHF magazine's review (issue no. 66): "The very best solid state amplifier Copland has produced, and by a long margin"

Copland's on description on this amplifier:

A two channel power amplifier in a slim line chasses. Combining the virtues of valve design with solid state circuit for high power stability and strong dynamics driving any speaker load with a clean undistorted signal.
Field effect transistors are used for both the input and driver stages. Like vacuum tubes they are voltage controlled and allow for circuitry design with a minimum of non-even harmonic distortion.
The CTA 520 remains faithful to the sound virtues of other COPLAND products. A firm grip on the lower octaves, an accelerating treble and most significantly a musicality, attributed to all COPLAND designs.

The specifications are as follows:
