Surely someone here has Electrocompaniet gear, a hardly known Norwegian manufacturer. I don’t know how established the name is over the seas, but anyway, it seems like Electrocompaniet makes very high quality products.
I have a PD-1 balanced DAC, I don’t know to compare to other DACs but I’d say my digital playback is clean, plain and simple, no-nonsense, if you look inside, first of all there’s a large toroidal transformer. I also have the ECI-1 class A dual-mono amp, and about toroids… This one has two 650VA ones, a peak current of 80A (!) and a maximum output of 500W.
It sounds just great and smooth and effortless, can’t say more because I need some new speakers for it to feed, maybe some power-hungrier ones because the amp is obviously screaming to output some POWER… Going to change the fuse too.
Anyway, this is a thread for discussing Electrocompaniet, I hope some of you know the name.
