The Camden EC2 is a two channel 19" preamp featuring our award-winning Camden 500 preamp topology, mojo analogue saturation circuits and dual reference-quality headphone amplifiers

With discrete line mixers.

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.

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.

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. They may be configured 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.
