The authors report simultaneous compression and chirped pulse amplification at megahertz repetition rates of ultrashort pulses using a cavity-dumped dye laser with a pumping argon ion laser as the amplifier. In a single stage, the pulse is compressed by a factor of 25 and the energy per pulse is simultaneously increased by a factor of 2, without reducing the repetition rate. Starting with a pulse that has a duration of 4.3 ps and a peak power of 5.8 kW, a pulse with a duration of 170 fs and a peak power of 294 kW is obtained. A second stage of pulse compression is used to obtain a broadband pulse with a duration >~50 fs and a peak power of ~100 kW at 2 MHz
