The Copland CSA70 integrated amplifier, unlike its bigger brothers, CSA100/CSA150, does not employ tubes in the line stage.

The Danish brand’s newest integrated amplifier, the Copland CSA70 has four digital inputs, three analogue inputs, a line-out function, as well a pre-out terminal, a front-facing 6.3mm headphone output, and a 70 Watts per channel power amplifier. For the vinyl enthusiast Copland has included a phono pre-amplifier.


The Copland CSA70 features the same power amplifier technology as the CSA100/CSA150 with a fast feedback structure and a wide large-signal frequency response.

Path lengths throughout the CSA70 amplifiers are minimized by keeping the entire electric audio architecture on a single PCB-board, minimizing susceptibility to RF interference and other extraneous noise pickups. There is a precision audio-grade motorized volume control. Contrary to most digital volume attenuators, it needs no additional electronics in the signal path. The integrated amplifier is protected against several fault conditions that could be dangerous to either amplifier or speakers, including DC offset, overcurrent conditions, and thermal overload.
