Cranborne Audio EC2 2-Channel Microphone Preamp
Cranborne Audio EC2 Preamp is a two channel 19" preamp featuring Cranborne's award-winning Camden 500 preamp topology, mojo analogue saturation circuits, and dual reference-quality headphone amplifiers with discrete line mixers.
Award Winning Pedigree
Featuring two discrete instances of ‘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 -129.8 dB EIN (150 Ohm, unweighted), THD+N as low as 0.0002%, frequency response of ±0.7 dB from 5 Hz to 200 kHz at max gain and <2° phase shift @ 20 Hz – 20 kHz.
Combined with the 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.
