Ever since the early days, when in 1976 the Audio Critic magazine proclaimed the Electrocompaniet to be “the world’s best sounding amplifier”, the company has maintained a reputation for peerless audio performance combined with understated, timeless classic presentation. Their gold-on-black lettering, glass faceplates and the rune-like ‘E’ are instantly recognizable.
Over the thirty-five years since that auspicious beginning, the range of products has grown to include some massive power amplifiers, beguiling CD and SACD players, and there’s even a DAB+/FM Tuner on the way. Integrated amplifiers are also well represented and make it possible for you to start into true high fidelity audio.
Monoblocks are the ultimate power amplifier in that they are able to placed closer to the speakers and have a fully dedicated power supply and amplifier circuitry for each channel. The AW180 monoblocks (180w into 8 ohms) are a fully balanced design and are to be found in many recording studios around the world. Each one has a balanced XLR link to additional amplifiers, and a bi-amp pair can be bridged for much higher power – if required!
