Hypex Ncore Amps Announced
« on: 14 Jun 2011, 09:28 pm »
Hypex has announced a new amp module that appears to be very exciting.  Here is the link www.hypex.nl/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=89
  I'm looking forward to this fall and seeing where this goes. 

Bruno the mastermind is taking ideas for a DIY version on DIY Audio.  He will create one DIY module available to the public.  :thumb:

Quote from Bruno Putzeys "The NC1200 is just the first Ncore module and it's quite specifically targeted at VARs (that's the correct term for "OEM customers"). A module for the DIY market is in the planning stage. Nothing is very concrete yet, apart from that it will be très chique and reasonably powered. I think this might be the right moment for you guys to chip in with feature or spec suggestions. I can't guarantee we can do all of it but definitely every idea will be considered. What probably won't happen is a whole range of DIY Ncore modules because we've outgrown ourselves a bit so let's make this thing one that most people will be happy with."

I'll be keeping an eye out for this.  I've owned a UcD hypex amp in the past and really enjoyed it.

Bruno has posted a picture of the amps he is sending out to manufactures for evaluation. 




Man I would love to evaluate a set of those  :thumb:

I wonder if Channel Islands Audio is one of the recipients of the evaluation amps?
 
In the past, with both Hypex and ICEpower modules, the  amplifier manufacturer often distinguished their finished product with modified and/or proprietary input circuitry, but according to Bruno, this new Ncore doesn't need any improvement in that area.

They have arrived. http://www.hypex.nl/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=100:nc400&catid=52&Itemid=102








Very interesting shape.  At 325 Euros per module it is not inexpensive.... Here is to USD to EURO Parity!   :thumb:

Thanks HT cOz, for the update!!!

I am very interested in hearing a finished amp. If anyone can post a link to some sellers when they come out, I'd appreciate it.

Check the dyaudio thread, though not a ton in the way of impressions yet.

As I understand it, the NC400 is DIY only while the NC1200 is for OEM. With that, has anyone heard of any manufacturers using the NC1200.  I believe that Theta has a set of monoblocks coming out, anyone else?

Thanks

Wow! Any ideas on how much to expect to pay for fully built amps? I want one.

Actually, heck with it, what do you need for DIY? Just a case and a power supply? Says t can take 24 amps.

Kit only.  $1300 buys two modules and two power supplies.

Ohh  Yeahhh!  Me, too. I don't often get power amp lust, now that I've got great powered monitors, but this makes me wish my speakers were passive.
