"Absolut Spitzenklasse, Überagend-58 punkte."
(59 points is the highest score on a poweramplifier tested in Stereoplay, and it cost 2-3 times more)
Stereoplay Germany

"A Manly Man Of An Amplifier"
- Up with the best valvejobs I've ever heard, and grainless liquidity that no other solid-state amplifier I've heard can match.
A cross between a singel ended triode and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Unlimited power and bottom slam, handles complexity without a hint of confusion. Enormously wide and deep soundstage.
I would pick them over every other solid-state amplifier I've heard.

(AW400)
Monaural Class A Reference Amplifier
AW 400
A powerfull monoamplifier
The Electrocompaniet AW400 is a powerful mono amplifier, with a characteristic fast and clean sound. The poweramplifier is analytic, and build for dynamic reproduction for low level as well as high level playback.
The Electrocompaniet AW400 power amplifier is based on the design philosophy of the highly acclaimed AW180 M monaural power amplifier.
The AW 400 incorporates such refined features as: FTT (Floating Transformer Technology) power supply, capable of delivering twice the current of a conventional power supply. First class overall circuit design and state-of-the-art components. Uncompromising sonic and mechanical quality.
a 650 VA FTT transformer and a current reservoir of 150.000uF delivers
1 x 400 W of clean and powerful dynamics into an 8 Ohms load. Just like the rest of our power amplifiers, the AW 400 is stable down to 0,5 Ohms. The Electrocompaniet AW 400 features a balanced link to additional amplifier(s) for bi-amping. It can easily be used in bridged mode, delivering up to four times the power.

EMC 1
A Great CD Player...Gets Even Better.
24 Bit upsampler 192KHz DAC
The EMC 1UP features a unique cancellation system which cancels acoustic / mechanical vibrations, preventing the laser pick-up from receiving unwanted and sonically degrading signals.
The EMC 1UP features our latest, fully balanced symmetrical state-of-the-art circuit design powered by a FTT (Floating Transformer Technology) power supply.
Design concept and construction:
The basic design philosophy of the EMC 1UP CD transport is inspired by crucial knowledge ported from the analog turntable. Principally, there is no difference between a record player and a CD player. Both playback systems consist of: a motor, a pick-up and a tone arm. Phenomena such as tone arm resonance found in analog turntables – are just as problematic in typical CD players.
To reduce or remove these phenomena plus other unwanted resonance, Electrocompaniet has developed a proprietary mechanical filter. The mechanical filter has been frequency adjusted by numerous listening tests by our listening panel. The mechanical filter removes internal and external vibration components from entering the laser pick-up assembly, resulting in a superior reproduction with tighter bass, bigger sound stage, precision, high resolution and amazing details.
A new concept brings the CD media to its upmost.
24 Bit upsampler 192KHz DAC improves the headroom by reducing the noise floor approximately 10dB(3x).
All analogue circuits are fully balanced and symmetrical, similar to the design of our amplifiers. Four separate power supplies using Floating Transformer Technology (FTT) are feeding the digital unit, the display, the drive mechanism and the analogue unit.

"Enhance the performance of the EMC 1 UP with the Spider Clamp. The spider clamp is developed by Electrocompaniet to make the EMC 1 UP perform even better. In addition to holding the CD down on the spindle the spider also centres the CD on the spindle, this makes the reading of the CD better. The spider is available in three colours: black, blue and silver."

EC 4.8 (Bottom photo)
For more than 30 years, the name "Electrocompaniet" has been synonymous
with the manufacture of great sounding power amplifiers. The numerous
prestigious international awards, as well as top ranking reviews, attest
to the success and appreciation of the amplifiers.

Since 1999, we have had the same level of world-wide recognition with
our reference CD player, the Electrocompaniet EMC 1. The obvious
missing link has been a preamplifier matching the quality of the
award-winning power amplifiers and reference CD player.

With the new Electrocompaniet two-channel EC 4.8 preamplifier, the
missing link is now removed.
With its outstanding performance, excellent resolution, superb control and precise musical rendering, we have succeeded making a preamplifier that is
true to our slogan,
“Closing the gap to the master”.
Our new two-channel EC 4.8 preamplifier is sure to make all good
power amplifiers sound even better !
The EC4.8 preamplifier is designed to fill our need for a advanced preamplifier in a higher price range. The preamplifier is designed as a slimline version, with a fully balanced electronic solution from input to output. It is designed as two separate mono preamplifiers, each with it’s own power supply. This preamplifier can be used with the included IR remote controller or as an option, together with the RF based remote controller ECT 2. The EC4.8 has the new SPAC network for safety control of the connected power amplifiers.
