Description stereo amplifier, Electrocompaniet ECI-3

Model Electrocompaniet ECI-3 is the youngest and among the most affordable full line of amps Classic. The unit received the traditional Electrocompaniet fine sleek design.

In the center of the front acrylic panel is the logo of the company with its orbiting blue LED volume indicator. Below installed key power Golden color. In the left part of the facade has a neat display with miniature symbols that indicates which of the inputs used at the moment. The right part of the front panel is occupied by four buttons, which are arranged in the form of a rhombus or a cross. Horizontal pair of buttons executes the functions of the selector inputs (switching is done with relays), and the vertical adjusts the volume level, which is done using a special motorized volume control located deep inside the body.

Stereo amplifier Electrocompaniet ECI-3 has a fully balanced topology with link DC. The power supply used proprietary technology FTT (Floating Transformer Technology), which increases the return current in two times in comparison with the designs characteristic of ordinary amplifiers. Apply high-quality components, similar to those used in the flagship models of the company. In the output stage is set carefully chosen by parameters of the transistors. Directly behind the front panel of the case is a toroidal transformer power supply, having a capacity of 550 VA, and the total capacity of the buffer capacitors is 40,000 µf. Due to this potential ECI 3 is capable of delivering 70 watts per channel at 8 Ohms. In addition, the amplifier can easily handle very low load, which, according to Electrocompaniet, can drop down to 0.5 Ohms.

There are 6 single-ended RCA inputs and one balanced XLR. Outputs: fixed recording (RCA) and two adjustable Pre Out (RCA and XLR) for connecting the outlet with the help of which you can also organize bi-animovie connection. The speaker has two pairs of screw terminals located on the right side of the back panel. Complete remote control has good ergonomics.

Amplifier Electrocompaniet ECI-3 has spotlessly clean, detailed, natural, musical and perfectly balanced sound with excellent dynamics. The model builds quite broad and impressive in its depth the scene.
