Award Winning Pedigree
Featuring two discrete instances of our ‘Camden’ preamp topology developed for Camden 500, Camden EC2 achieves stunning low-noise and low-distortion performance as well as frequency and phase linearity at all gain settings. The sum result is -129.8dB EIN (150ohm, unweighted), THD+N as low as 0.0002%, frequency response of ±0.7dB from 5Hz to 200kHz at max gain and <2° phase shift @ 20Hz – 20kHz.
Combined with our custom Mojo analogue saturation circuit, Camden EC2 can take on the persona of a vintage british-style transformer-based preamp using Thump, a gooey tube-based preamp using Cream, or an astoundingly clean and natural preamp when Mojo is bypassed. Switch each Camden preamp into their line mode and now the Mojo saturation circuits can apply vintage colouration onto your stems and even stereo mixes during the mix phase.
Dual Channel Preamp And Instrument DI
Featuring a custom transformerless front-end topology with 68.5dB of gain, Camden EC2 achieves groundbreaking performance in noise, distortion, frequency response, and phase shift throughout all 12 gain positions. Each of EC2's preamp's feature tailored input impedance and headroom for Mic, Line, and Hi-Z sources using a dedicated 3-way input type switch on each channel.
Dual Headphone Mixer
Two reference-quality headphone amplifiers with discrete line mixers allow for direct monitoring of both Camden preamps using headphones connected directly to Camden EC2’s front panel.
Monitor the preamp during mic placement to find the sweet spot of a guitar cab, kick drum, or acoustic instrument; alternatively, configure them to create a zero-latency all analogue monitor mix combining the local Camden preamps with playback incoming from an external playback source via Camden EC2’s rear panel Aux Inputs.
Camden EC2 features two instances of one of the cleanest, most linear, and transparent preamps on the market. Our new ‘Camden’ preamp topology allows us to push the boundaries of Frequency response, phase shift, noise, and THD performance; and we have all the specs to back that up.
