Enter today for your chance to win this superb Cranborne Audio EC1 Preamp and CAST System, worth £1100$1030

Great recordings start with great preamps — and Cranborne Audio know how to make them! Cranborne’s acclaimed Camden EC1 preamp offers all the gain you could ever need, alongside indispensible utilities such as phantom power, polarity inversion, a high‑pass filter, and line‑boosting and instrument‑DI options. It also offers a few unique features, such as the company’s proprietary Mojo circuitry, for imparting a little vintage-style saturation to your signal.

Also part of the Prize package: N8 distribution hub, N22H two-channel CAST-compatible headphone amp, and N22 CAST‑to‑XLR I/O converter.

But recordings require more than just a high‑quality input chain. The engineer needs to be able to hear what they are capturing, and the musicians need to hear their performance. The EC1 tackles both problems simultaneously by incorporating an innovative analogue multicore system called CAST. Essentially, this makes use of standard Cat5e, Cat6 or Cat7 network cables to pipe up to four channels of balanced audio simultaneously, eliminating the need for bulky snakes. Round the back of the EC1 is a network port, which not only sends the preamp’s output on to your recording system, but can also distribute it to your control-room monitors and artist foldback mix, while also sending your DAW’s output back to the preamp’s front-panel headphone out.

The result is a neat and tidy way of making sure your recordings can be heard where they need to be, and the winner of this month’s exclusive SOS competition will receive not only an EC1 preamp, but also an N8 distribution hub, an N22H two-channel CAST-compatible headphone amp, and an N22 CAST‑to‑XLR I/O converter. With this fantastic prize combo, you’ll never again be left wanting for foldback or monitoring options when capturing your musical magic.
