Electrocompaniet AW-180 Power AmplifiersElectrocompaniet are a Norwegian manufacturer of high end audio equipment. For over 35 years they have produced some of the world’s finest amplifiers (including the legendary 600W x 2 ‘Nemo’ amplifier, the world’s most powerful Class A amplifier). Today their range includes amplifiers, pre-amps, source devices and loudspeakers.

Electrocompaniet Amplifiers

In 1973 a new type of distortion termed “Transient Intermodulation” was identified by Dr Matti Otala, setting in motion the research and engineering team at a small Norwegian audio company. They believed that the elimination of this distortion was the key to pure hi fi sound.

Two years later, the “2 Channel Audio Power Amplifier” was released by Electrocompaniet – this ground-breaking 25W x 2 amplifier was described by the American hi fi bible The Audio Critic as “The world’s best sounding amplifier”.
