We have been Electrcompaniet dealers since 2010 or so.
Electrcompaniet is not a well marketed brand in the US so they don't have a lot of dealers, hence not as many people are familiar with the brand
The EC amplifers are a bargain for the sound quality and they are very well built. The AW 180 are a sweet sounding pair of monoblock amplifiers based on the Legendary Nero which was an amplifier designed to drive very big and inefficient loudspeakers.
The pairing of the Nemo with big B&W loudspeakers was one of the most respected parings in Europe.
The AW180 is basically half of the Nemo which is a bridged set of these modules.
The sound quality is very clean, with a bit of warmth and body, a big soundstage, great bass and dynamics.
We have found that unless you go up to $16k and above price points the AW 180 are very magical with a lot of speakers and there power and current delivery is exceptional even into demanding loads.

@mktracy, My friend owns the Electrocompaniet Prelude Series PI-2 integrated, 100/150/220W @ 8/4/2 ohm, without the optional DAC, and likes it very much. I have heard good comments about Electrocompaniet amps but have never heard one.
As was stated above, Electrocompaniet products are not well marketed is the USA. I was unable to find any USA Electrocompaniet retailers in the San Francisco Bay Area.
If you are interested, I suggest you call Dave or Troy from The Audio Doctor in New Jersey. He should be able to answer your questions since he is a Electrocompaniet retailer.
