Electrocompaniet EMC 1-UP with Spider Clamp and 1 1/2" Spikes [Expired]


no longer for sale

I was the EC distributor for 6 years and this is one of my personal units. I have hardly used it as you can see from the photos. The custom spikes are worth at least $300 by themselves and the Silver Spider Clamp is worth around $600, that makes $900 worth of accessories. The EMC 1UP features a unique cancellation system which cancels acoustic / mechanical vibrations, preventing the laser pick-up from receiving unwanted and sonically degrading signals. The EMC 1UP features our latest, fully balanced symmetrical state-of-the-art circuit design powered by a FTT (Floating Transformer Technology) power supply. Design concept and construction The basic design philosophy of the EMC 1UP CD transport is inspired by crucial knowledge ported from the analog turntable. Principally, there is no difference between a record player and a CD player. Both playback systems consist of: a motor, a pick-up and a tone arm. Phenomena such as tone arm resonance found in analog turntables - are just as problematic in typical CD players. To reduce or remove these phenomena plus other unwanted resonance, Electrocompaniet has developed a proprietary mechanical filter. The mechanical filter has been frequency adjusted by numerous listening tests by our listening panel. The mechanical filter removes internal and external vibration components from entering the laser pick-up assembly, resulting in a superior reproduction with tighter bass, bigger sound stage, precision, high resolution and amazing details. A new concept brings the CD media to its upmost. 24 Bit upsampler 192KHz DAC improves the headroom by reducing the noise floor approximately 10dB(3x). All analogue circuits are fully balanced and symmetrical, similar to the design of our amplifiers. Four separate power supplies using Floating Transformer Technology (FTT) are feeding the digital unit, the display, the drive mechanism and the analogue unit. The spider clamp is developed by Electrocompaniet to make the EMC 1 UP perform even better. In addition to holding the CD down on the spindle the spider also centres the CD on the spindle, this makes the reading of the CD better.
