Electrocompaniet - ECP-2 - MM & MC Phono Preamplifier
With the renewed international enthusiasm for the vinyl format, a world-class phono preamplifier or RIAA stage is more important in a reference setup than ever before.
The ECP-2 has become a new favourite of reviewers and enthusiasts alike. A benchmark product in its price bracket, much like other Electrocompaniet products.
It incorporates state- of-the-art instrumentation and operational amplifiers and highest quality discrete components in the signal path. Of course it is all DC coupled.
The ECP 2 can accommodate any imaginable pickup, MM or MC thanks to its extremely configurable input stage.
Ajustable gain and very strictly matched to the RIAA curve.
The ECP 2 will make your vinyl records sing like no other phono preamplifier we know of, and it seems the industry agrees with us.
