Cranborne Audio unveils Camden EC1 amplifier

UK-based pro audio manufacture Cranborne Audio has lifted the lid on its new Camden EC1 multi-functional recording tool.

The Camden EC1 is a combination preamp, signal processor and headphone amplifier, packaged in a half-rack, desktop-friendly design that is suited to home or project studios.

“We designed Camden EC1 to make it easy for musicians, vocalists, podcasters and video producers to achieve elite-quality recordings and reference headphone critical listening,” said Sean Karpowicz, managing director and founder of Cranborne Audio. 

“Camden’s unprecedented performance allows you to vastly improve the quality of your tracks,” added Elliott Thomas, product manager. “Using its ‘Mojo’ control, Camden EC1 goes from extraordinarily clean and natural sounding, to thick, vintage-style analogue saturation that can add that ‘magic colour’ to your tracks.”

The Camden EC1’s reference-quality headphone amplifier and independent, four-channel line mixer allows for zero-latency monitoring using headphones directly from the front panel. For recording guitars, it combines a Hi-Z instrument circuit with a dedicated ¼-inch link output making it suitable for re-amping guitars and bass, either in studio or on stage.

It also uses Cranborne Audio’s C.A.S.T. system for distributing audio around the studio using Cat 5e, Cat 6, or Cat 7 cabling.

“Engineered and designed under the Cranborne team’s watchful eyes,” continued Karpowicz. “Camden EC1 features elite audio specifications and application-based features that defy its price tag and is accessible for professional, project, and home studio engineers.”
