Electrocompaniet AW 180 Monoblock Amplifier – The last chance

According to the German distributor of Electrocompaniet A/S, the company MRV - Matthias Roth from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, there are only a few units of the legendary Electrocompaniet AW 180 Monoblock Amplifier left, so if you are interested, you should act quickly and secure your Electrocompaniet AW180 Last Edition.

Story Highlights
  • All those who still want to secure a pair of the legendary Electrocompaniet AW 180 Monoblock Amplifiers from Electrocompaniet A/S should get their hands on the Last Edition now.

With the Electrocompaniet AW 180 Monoblock Amplifier, the Norwegian High-end HiFi manufacturer Electrocompaniet A/S presented a quite extraordinary solution, which was characterised in particular by its outstanding performance. That was exactly 30 years ago, at the High-End 1994, which at that time was not yet held in Munich but in Frankfurt.

This year was also the year in which Matthias Roth of MRV – Matthias Roth began his collaboration with the Norwegian HiFi manufacturer Electrocompaniet A/S and became the distributor for Germany and Austria.

30 years a constant

The amazing thing is that the Electrocompaniet AW 180 power amplifier is still available on the market after all these years, albeit with many minor and major updates.

This shows two things: that the solutions from the High-end HiFi manufacturer Electrocompaniet A/S are indeed considered a good investment, as they are offered for many, many years and thus retain their value, and that the company MRV – Matthias Roth is also considered a permanent fixture in the HiFi landscape, because a partnership lasting over thirty years is truly something quite extraordinary in today’s fast-moving times.

Nevertheless, Electrocompaniet A/S believes that the time has come to discontinue the aforementioned power amplifier in its current form, but since Matthias Roth is convinced that there is hardly an amplifier on the market today that can compete with the sonic performance of the Electrocompaniet AW 180, he has secured the very last products for Germany and Austria so that he can now offer them as the Electrocompaniet AW 180 Last Edition.

All those who still want to call a pair of this power amplifier their own should now get their hands on it. However, the successor is also available as an alternative in the form of the Electrocompaniet AW 300 M Power Amplifier, a solution that shows how popular the design of the Electrocompaniet AW 180 still is, as the successor adopts the concept of its predecessor, but of course uses completely new technology.

Prices and availability

The Electrocompaniet AW 180 Last Edition is available in small quantities from MRV – Matthias Roth at a price of € 10.398,- per pair.

Getting to the point

The Electrocompaniet AW 180 Monoblock Amplifier is not only still an outstanding power amplifier, it also serves as a kind of symbol for his long co-operation with Electrocompaniet A/S, says Matthias Roth from the distributor MRV – Matthias Roth, who has now been responsible for the solutions from Norway in Germany and Austria for 30 years. The Norwegians have been offering this power amplifier for just as long, but are now taking it out of the programme and sending the new Electrocompaniet AW 300 M Power Amplifier into the race instead. Matthias Roth has secured the last models of the predecessor and can now offer them in limited numbers as the Electrocompaniet AW 180 Last Edition.
