The Electrocompaniet ECP 2 MKII Phono Preamplifier is the latest product release from Electrocompaniet, continuing the upgrade of all of their Classic Line products.

It incorporates instrumentation operational amplifiers and like other Electrocompaniet products, it uses quality discrete components through the whole signal path, all DC coupled.

MM & MC Cartridges

The ECP 2 MKII follows the design upgrade of the MKII products, with a brand new chassis and frontplate design in line with all other MKII products. The ECP 2 MKII accommodates any pick-up and cable combination, thanks to its highly configurable input stage. Regardless of the pick-up cartridge, one can select the best suitable capacitive and resistive load configuration. Both MM and MC are supported.

The overall gain is adjustable in 5 dB steps to accommodate different output levels from different pick-ups. The ECP 2 MKII strictly follows the standard RIAA playback equalization curve. It thereby also implements a steep low-frequency roll-off to filter out unwanted signals, originating, for example, from playing back warped records.
