EC 4.9

(discontinued product)

The six channel balanced preamplifier

The best of two worlds. Is it possible to have the best two-channel system, and at the same time have the best multi-channel system? With the EC 4.9, the answer is yes.

Combined with our new EMP 1 Multiplayer and our new generation of power amplifiers, the Electrocompaniet EC 4.9 gives you the best sound from both worlds.  The EC 4.9 can work with the AW 3x120-M power amplifier to automatically switch between multi-channel amplification and bridged stereophonic mode, giving you the ideal system no matter what music you are playing, all controlled by a two-way radio remote control from the comfort of your armchair. With each of the six channels having the same outstanding sound quality as the EC 4.8 preamplifier, Electrocompaniet now has one of the best performing and most advanced 6 channel preamplifiers on the market.

The EC4.9 preamplifier is the first product in the new range of multi-channel equipment from Electrocompaniet. The EC4.9 uses the new EC serial standard SPAC, (Serial Power Amp Control) for controlling the Power amplifier. In combination with one AW3×120, and one AW2x120, the new multi channel power amplifiers, it's possible to switch from a 120W multi channel system to 2×400W two-channel system. All fully controlled from the new Remote Controller ECT2 (optional)
