EMC 1 MKV REFERENCE CD PLAYER

Since 1998, Electrocompaniet has produced one of the best sound­ing CD players on the market, the EMC 1 UP. The new EMC 1 MKV builds upon this legacy and refines by using a new drive unit.

The MKV also introduces updated electronics for better sonic perfor­mance, new mechanics for more rigid construction and brand new chassis with updated design to be in line with the new MKII edition of our other products.




TECHNOLOGY

REVIEW & AWARDS

BEST HI-FI COMPONENTS AWARD - Read More


HIGHLY COMMENDED AWARD - Read More

"A CD player and nothing else – there aren't even digital filters to experiment with, let alone inputs – Electrocompaniet's EMC 1 MKV isn't meant to be the hub of a multi-format system. Yet silver disc collectors will find their library is in very safe hands, as this fifth-gen flagship makes CDs sound thrillingly musical, and does so from a glamorous, well-engineered machine that's a real pleasure to use." - Mark Craven


EMC 1 MKV - 5 HEARTS AWARD - Read More

"Built like the proverbial brick outhouse, the toploading CD player (EMC1 V) from Norwegian company Electrocompaniet proves that the CD format still has a lot of life left in it. The sound isn’t flashy or attention-grabbing but draws you into the music and you want to just continue to listen to CD after CD.. "
