Copland CSA70 Integrated Amplifier

Copland CSA70 Integrated Amplifier

10 February 2022

Under the hood, this Copland employs an Amenero USB interface, and an optional Bluetooth module is also available. Interestingly, the higher-spec ESS DAC (used in the CSA100 and CSA150 models) is replaced by the older Wolfson WM8740 in the CSA70, which is already behind the curve, being ‘just’ 24/192 PCM with no facility to handle DSD. However, this is still sufficient to work with the vast majority of music files currently out there and will be for a while, I reckon.

In the flesh, the CSA70 is a handsome, regular-sized integrated amplifier that measures 435x150x370mm and weighs around 12kg. I like its beautifully finished 10mm thick brushed aluminium fascia plate (available in silver or black), which gives the amp a classy, understated look. Two large rotary knobs on the front protrude by about 35mm; the left knob is the input selector, while the right knob controls volume.
