EMC-1UP is a cd player and it is a great sounding one at that.

I have the EC-3 which is a balanced dual mono pre-amp with a great moving coil phono section. For years I used this with an Electrocompaniet Ampliwire 75 watt (into 8 ohms) amp to drive my Magnepans. I will be selling this combination soon but if you have any questions I would be glad to answer them. Electrocompaniet makes high quality gear. If you live in the Seattle area feel free to come by for a listen.
Thank you to everyone for the their feedback. I mixed up the model numbers as I was trying to type this while also taking calls for work (on a Monday no less...). I have seen a number of references to the high-quality sound produced by the CDP (most people refer to the use of the spider clamp as well). I am very curious about the sound characteristics of the EC 4.7, 4.8 and 4.9 pre-amps. If anyone has experience with these I'd like to hear about it...thanks!
The ECM 1up is wonderful sounding, and has proved very reliable and as earlier stated in this thread accurately, a little rolled off on top with great mid range and solid bass.
The two going on Audiogon for under 2k are an absolute bargain.
Moving to SACD would be the only reason to change and that would be a big cash outlay for a top unit as I'm not willing to giveup what this cd player gives me.
