Legendary Electrocompaniet ECD-1 digital-to-analog converter in excellent condition. I'm only selling it because I no longer have a place to set up a sound system. The ECD-1 is currently in the Atlanta Georgia area, though I will be driving to south Florida in late October or early November, so I may be able to personally deliver it to a buyer in this region to avoid shipping issues.
Here are excerpts from a Stereo Times review of the ECD-1:
"The moment I connected the ECD1 to my system I found the missing link I had been searching for. I was able to take this DAC right out of the box, plug it in and hear the difference. As I sat and listened to standard 16-bit/44 kHz CDs, there was suddenly a level of clarity and detail that I had not heard before. The soundstage was deep and wide and there was a real sense of space and dimension. A completely three-dimensional sound filled the room with amazing detail and imaging. It was very easy to hear that the ECD1 was able to resolve the slightest ambient information from the source. The high frequency presence was fluid and smooth, not because it was made brighter, but because the detail was resolved and not cancelled as noise. As I listened to John Coltrane's SoulTrane [Prestige OJCCD-021-2], each tap on the cymbal was crisp and clear. You could actually hear the drumstick strike the cymbal and the sound was heard clearly as it faded away with detail before the next strike. And of course, Coltrane's tenor saxophone was amazing, truly natural sounding with incredible dynamics. Once again, all the details were present, right down to Coltrane's breath as it escaped through the saxophone.
* * *
I have had this unit in my system for several months now and I truly believe that this unit is responsible for a level of transparency and clarity that my system did not have previously and provides the performance and sound quality of DACs costing much more. * * * I was so impressed by the sound of the ECD1 that I purchased the unit and it is now a base component in my system."
