Electrocompaniet are a Norwegian manufacturer of high end audio equipment. For over 35 years they have produced some of the world’s finest amplifiers (incluing 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.
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”.
Today Electrocompaniet produce a range of pre-amplifiers, power amplifiers and integrated amplifiers that uphold that lofty claim. Their ‘Nemo’ amplifier is used as a reference in studios world-wide (including Abbey Road). The current range includes:
