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. But at the top of their range are some truly awesome power amplifiers.
Monoblocks are the ultimate power amplifier in that they are able to be placed closer to the speakers and have a fully dedicated power supply and amplifier circuitry for each channel. The big AW600 Nemo monoblock can deliver 600w into 8 ohms, 1200w into 4 ohms and 2400 into 2 ohms! This is partly due to the Floating Transformer Technology which Electrocompaniet include in many of their designs to help them achieve that combination of unflappable power and consummate audio quality.
