The Echorec EM6

The EM6: the first and only device that integrates an Echorec memory module and a Binson PreMixer unit. This rare model, mentioned earlier in the Echorec EC10 2×10 section as the ancestor of that strange machine, now has its dedicated place in the Echorec Bible.

The EM6 photo set was kindly contributed by Tom Hughes of For Musicians Only, East Haven, CT (USA). Thanks Tom!

Read all the details in the dedicated EM6 section of the Echorec Bible.

Strangest Beasts: the Echorec EC10 2×10

The rarest version of a rare model: the cyan/blue Echorec EC-10 2×10 photographed by Giorgio Montagna of Montagna Hi-end Audio Systems. An intermediate design that connects the early 70’s Binson 7 and EM6 with the mid-70’s EC series. See the EC10 2×10 in its new dedicated section of the Echorec Bible here.

The Echorec EM6

Two new entries in the Echorec Bible model listing: the silver EM6 and black EM6.

The EM6 is an all-in-one device composed by a 4+1 head Echorec and a 6 channel preamp/mixer. Both the Echorec and the premixer are solid state. The EM6 was proposed in 1974 as the ideal preamp  for the PF series of Binson solid state power amps (PF100 and PF200).

The EM6 has a flat control panel on top evolved from that of the 1972 Amplificatore 7, the very first Echorec system designed for horizontal operations. Since the EM6 every newer Echorec series (starting with the EC) feature flat top panels only.

Two liveries for the EM6: cyan/silver (same as the Amplificatore 7) and cyan/black. The PF series power amps have been offered in matching silver or black colorations. Check the EM6 in the Echorec Bible model listing.
