The ECG-1 is fitted with a 24 volt AC asynchronous motor that is perfectly controlled by a two phase low harmonic analogue sine wave controller. The motor is very precise and will follow the frequency of the motor controller, without the complications and over engineering necessary with a DC motor. Norwegian turntable is fitted with the Jelco SA-750EB tonearm. It will handle phono cartridges weighing between 4 and 12 grams. Since Electrocompaniet has no in-house production facilities for making its own phono cartridge, the development and production is done by Sound Smith company, after Electrocompaniet's specifications, making the cartridge an OEM product. Sound Smith specializes in making Moving Micro Cross cartridges and also the Electrocompaniet cartridge uses this technology.
$4,450 with tonearm and Sound Smith Cartridge.
ECP 2 - High performance Phono Stage!
ECP 2 Balanced Phono Stage Preamplifier
The new Electrocompaniet ECP 2 Phono Preamplifier is designed according to
guidelines seen in the phono preamplifier from Dynamic Precision. It
incorporates state-of-the-art instrumentation operational amplifiers and like
other Electrocompaniet products, it uses the highest quality of discrete
components through the whole signal path, all DC coupled of course.
The ECP 2 accommodates any imaginable pick-up and cable combination, thanks to it’s highly configurable input stage. User can select best suiting capacitive and resistive load configuration regarding to the pick-up cartridge used as source, no matter whether it is of an MM or MC type. Overall gain is also adjustable in 5 dB steps to accommodate different output levels from different pick-ups. The ECP 2 follows strictly the standard RIAA playback equalization curve, having also steep low frequency roll-off to filter out unwanted signals originating for example from playing back warped records.
Gain @ 1 kHz RCA Adjustable 39,8 – 71,4 dB
Gain @ 1 kHz XLR Adjustable 45,8 – 76,4 dB
Resistance loading (RL) Adjustable 10 Ω – 47k Ω
Capacitive loading (CL) Adjustable 0 – 350 pF
Maximum output level 17.5 V rms (+ 25 dB V)
Output impedance 100 Ω single-ended, 200 Ω balanced
Frequency response 20 – 20 kHz +/- 0.2 dB
RIAA Correction Accuracy ± 0,1 dB
Subsonic filter -3dB @ 11 Hz, 24 dB/octave
Channel separation > 85 dB, 20 – 20 kHz
THD + Noise < 0.003 % @ 1 kHz
S/N-R 96 dB, 1 kHz, A-weighted, ref. 10 dB V output
S/N-R 91 dB, 1 kHz, A-weighted, ref. 5 mV input
This seriously high performing phono stage is just $2,300.
EMC 1 MK III - Reference SACD Player!
EMC 1 MK III Limited Edition SACD player
Since 1998, Electrocompaniet has produced one of the best sounding CD players on the market, the EMC 1-UP. The new Limited Edition EMC 1 MKIII builds upon this legacy, and brings it into the area of high definition audio. The Limited Edition EMC 1 MKIII is designed for uncompromising playback of standard audio CD and SACD. The player has a high performance sample rate converter, fully balanced D/A converters and discrete analog audio circuitry for excellent performance. It features an unique cancellation system which cancels acoustic / mechanical vibrations, preventing the laser pick-up from receiving unwanted and sonically degrading signals. The audio quality surpassed our own EMC 1 UP, arguably one of the best CD players on the market today.
• No-compromise mechanical design with five different housings, which shield analogue, digital, transport, transformer and controller circuitry.
• Electromechanical cancellation system which cancels acoustic-mechanical vibrations, preventing the laser pickup from receiving mechanical distortions.
• Separate transformers and power supplies for analogue and digital circuits.
• Fully balanced D/A converter with discrete analog audio circuitry.
• Digital outputs via S/PDIF and Toslink.
•12V trigger input for remote power ON.
• RS232 port for firmware upgrades and control through a wide range of home installation systems.
• Soundcare superspikes for the best possible footing.
