Bottom Line:   
Simply love it. Own this amp for over 12 years since it was bought new - holding on to it despite expanding over more expensive amps and tubes. This unit is utterly reliable and timeless. Same for sound quality: it holds its own through sheer musicality and authority. Would describe it a constant performer that was easily matched to a variety of speakers tried over the last decade - it for instance played succesfully with sonus faber as well as yamaha's 1000's.

Bottom Line:   
Because of the audio bug I recently audition to different amplifiers, same grade as ECI-2 or a little bit higher grade (in terms of price). I audition to Musical Fidelity, Primare, Accuphase, ECI-3..and even some local made tube amps. Conclusion is I will keep my ECI-2. It is just MUSICAL. Tonality is a little bit tube-like, warm and not too analytical. I think I need to pay more than twice if I want to get noticeble improvement. Suprisingly it is better sound than ECI-3. I don't know why because ECI-3 is DC couple and balanced circuit. Maybe the components of ECI-2 is better???

Bottom Line:   
Now superceeded by the EC1/3 this well made integrated is a bargain if you can pick one up on the second-hand market. Straight out of the box the overall impression I would say was only average - this unit as any Electro' owner will tell you needs to be left switched on all the time. Secondly, ditch the standard power-cord and upgrade this immediately...the result will give you a lovely smooth, powerful whiff of the high end for small change. Yes it does lend a warm tint to the music but that doesn't result in any particularly bad trade-offs, instead you can sit back and relax and let the music flow without fatigue. I have since traded up to an Electro' pre/power combo which simply adds to the strengths of this amp...thoroughly recommended.

Guess what, I have just bought a pair Silver plated copper
cable from QED to interconnect my CD player and the ECI-2.
I could not believe the improvement. The mid and high are so
articulate. The overall balance is smooth and sweet. I am
sorry to post an unfair review to this amp. Now I'd rather
keep it and will not trade it for anything.
