Cranborne Audio Camden EC2

SKU: Camden EC2

Award Winning Preamp Technology Packed Into 1u
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.

Award Winning Pedigree
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. The sum result is -129.8dB EIN (150ohm, unweighted), THD+N as low as 0.0002%, frequency response of ±0.7dB from 5Hz to 200kHz at max gain and <2° phase shift @ 20Hz – 20kHz.

Vintage Persona
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. 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.

C.A.S.T. Enabled
By utilising our unique C.A.S.T. system, Camden EC2's connections can be moved to another location in the studio or stage by using a single cat 5 cable.

Connect Camden EC2's C.A.S.T. IN port to one of our N22/N22H breakout boxes and then mic/line sources connected to the inputs of the breakout box will travel through the cat 5 cable and arrive directly at Camden EC2's preamp inputs.
Simultaneously, a monitor mix generated by Camden EC2 is carried through C.A.S.T. and arrives directly at the outputs of the breakout box for advanced monitoring.

Connect Camden EC2's C.A.S.T. OUT port directly into the C.A.S.T. inputs on 500R8/500ADAT and then the outputs of Camden EC2's preamps are sent directly into 500R8/500ADAT's 500 series module's for further processing and recording.
