The Copland CSA150 integrated amplifier is the top model in the new line of Danish brand Copland’s CSA series amplifiers.

Copland CSA150 Integrated Amplifier

The new Copland CSA150 Integrated Amplifier employs the Copland double triode gain stage with MOS-FET buffering ensuring a tight interface between the tube and the solid-state parts of the amplifier.

The Copland CSA150 Integrated Amplifier claims immunity to mains fluctuations, load demands and noise interference by use of wide bandwidth power supply regulation, not only for the low-level stages of the amplifier, but also by active regulation of the power amplifier driver stages.

Inputs

The D/A converter has multiple S/PDIF inputs, PCM, and DSD capabilities using the ES9018 Reference 32-bit DAC in quad-mono configuration, 8 mono to 2 stereo configurations.

Besides the digital coax and optical inputs, an additional Bluetooth aptX module makes airborne sources available in HD quality, plus there are RCA inputs as well as balanced XLR. For the vinyl enthusiast, the CSA150 has RIAA input for MM cartridges. There is also a classic tape loop in/out function as well as pre-out terminal and a front-facing 6.3mm headphone output.
