Default Electrocompaniet Preampliwire I/Preampliwire II manual

I have an Electrocompaniet Preampliwire I with onboard MC phono stage. However, the manuals for my hi-fi equipment were lost by the furniture removal company when I moved house recently. If anyone has a copy of the manual for a Preampliwire I/Preampliwire II I would really appreciate it.

The bit I really need is the section which explains how to switch the preamp from MC to MM by removing the phono board, then installing capacitors and resistors in its place. There is also a method for increasing the gain of the phono stage by changing plug-in resistors. Lastly, there is the section on how to change the MC phono stage feedback resistors to suit different cartridges such as Denon, Ortofon or Van den Hul.

I am reposting this thread because I recently got a copy of the manual for an Electrocompaniet EC-1 from another diyaudio.com user (doanh). However, the Electrocompaniet Preampliwire I is not an EC-1. The Electrocompaniet Preampliwire I is one of Electrocompaniet's earliest preamps (1982).

BTW, I am not in the sinbin (I was put in the sinbin due to an administrative error, not because I broke forum rules at any time). I have decided to repost the thread as being in the sinbin may have given other users a bad impression of me.

For further details on the sinbin mistake, check out this link to the relevant explanation by diyaudio.com moderator Cal Weldon.

Hi browser

Did you find the info required. I also have a Preampliwire II, and would like to know how to change it for MC cartridges.

No, it's been > four years and I still haven't got one.

I do remember that the cartridge loading resistor values (I think) were between 10R-270R, depending on the cartridge used. The trouble is, the manual listed which cartridge was for which resistor value. I think most Ortofons used 10R loading if this helps. Also, I don't remember the cartridge capacitor values.
