After being in High-end for more than 40 years, we are proud to introduce our first turntable: The ECG-1. In times where the Hifi business is moving more and more towards digital solutions, the interest in analog products is still growing in the High-End.
Compared to most of our competitors, we do not use a well-known OEM producer, but develop and produce in our modern factory in Norway. Special care is taken in all important aspects of the turntable: the chassis, platter, motor, and tonearm.
CHASSIS: The Electrocompaniet ECG-1 is a sandwich construction made out of three layers: acrylic and aluminum, benefiting from the internal dampening in the acrylic and the rigidity of the aluminum. This sandwich construction with its different materials increases the internal vibration dampening further, so the chassis will have no resonance problems.
PLATTER: The ECG 1 is fitted with a platter made out of acrylic that is very similar to the vinyl material used in the record. The record is meant to be placed directly onto the platter, without the use of a platter mat. This ensures a “strong” coupling between the two parts, basically making the LP “a part of the platter”. The acrylic material in the platter has good internal dampening, so it won’t “ring” like a metal platter.
MOTOR:The ECG-1 turntable is fitted with a 24 Volt AC synchronous motor that is perfectly controlled by a 2 phase low harmonic analogue sine wave controller. An AC motor is very precise and will follow the frequency of the motor controller, without the complications and over engineering necessary with a DC motor (and it’s steering).
TONEARM: The Electrocompaniet ECG-1 turntable is fitted with the Jelco SA-750EB tone arm. It will handle phono cartridges weighing between 4 and 12 grams.
The ECG-1 fits to 100% to our Classic-Line products. In combination with our new ECP 2 Phono Preamplifier you will get real Electrocompaniet sound from your Vinyl!
