The Electrocompaniet AW250R power amplifier is known for its uncoloured and excellent reproduction qualities. From the first note of any familiar recording, you will be captivated by the AW250R and by the musical enjoyment it will give you.

The AW250R incorporates such refined features as: FTT (Floating Transformer Technology) power supply, capable of delivering twice the current of conventional power supply designs, as well as first class overall circuit design and state-of-the-art components.

Compared to more expensive High-End power amplifiers with lesser performance, you will truly cherish the AW250R. The Electrocompaniet AW250R features a balanced link to additional amplifier(s) for bi-amping. It can thus easily be used in bridged mode, delivering up to four times the power.


A first class overall circuit design and state-of-the-art components.







Every system is produced in our cutting-edge facilities on the west coast of Norway. Unlike other manufacturers, it is not only the design and assembly but also the complete production of the parts and components that is performed here. Producing the entire system right here in Norway allows us to ensure the highest possible quality.





"Don't be put off by the out-of-time looks – Electrocompaniet's AW250 R is a hugely impressive stereo power amplifier. It gives a taste of serious high-end sound at a mid-fi price. I used it with an MF Audio Passive preamp and also via my Chord Hugo TT2 DAC's balanced outputs, and in both cases it delivered musical fireworks, with a bold, gutsy and vibrant sound, cloaked in a smooth, dark tonal wrapper that suited my speakers down to the ground. Factor in serious build quality, and it's hard not to like" - DAVID PRICE


"This is a very expensive stereo power amplifier, but your money buys you no less than 39kg of Norwegian heavy metal with a claimed 2x 250W RMS per channel of Class AB power into 8 ohms, 2x 380W into 4 ohms, 2x 625W into 2 ohms and 2x 1,100W into 1. It's not the world's most attractively styled hi-fi product, but you can't argue with its immense power and load driving ability, allied to a surprisingly fine sound that's as translucent as a Nordic freshwater spring." - stereonet

AW 250 R REVIEW - Read More

"I remember the first day I installed the AW250 R in my house. I still can't believe that I lifted an amp weighing 39kg by myself because I wanted to hear the sound quickly. I turned on the amp and waited almost an hour before listening to Shostakovich No. 5. It was a calm, clean, yet rich tone. It was the same as the touch of Shostakovich No. 5, which I heard at Musikferrain in Vienna, Austria last May. It was not the type that showed off the output, but the type of amplifier that gave fast speed and accurate hitting. And it was quiet, heavy, and firm. In this hi-fi club watching room, I turned up the volume to my heart's content, and the AW250R's inner feelings and hidden abilities were newly discovered. That was the ample headroom, and it was the feel of a smooth reproduction without any distortion even at high volume. Again, the AW250 R reminded me that the key to the amplifier is how to overcome the speed and distortion problems. Recommended." - Kim Pyeon

Electrocompaniet AW250R Stereo Power Amplifier Review - Read More

"To me the Electrocompaniet AW250R is a power amplifier that when you put it into your system and listen to it you are not going to want to take it out, that’s not just because its back pain heavy but because it makes music quite a bit more special to listen to. I definitely don’t want to give it back it could quite happily stay here for the foreseeable" - Pursuitperfectsystem
