Not really worth the effort if it is not in my system.
I did notice that George had one disadvantage and Jason shot back immediately defending Ncore.
Yes, but isn't Zybar close to you? He brought them to his friends house...maybe he could've brought them to you too.
What's your buddy with the Lamm going to do? Will we hear from him?
Chris said it ... there is new toy in the town and now everyone wants it and it is now their favorite toy (believe me - I want it too ... though I have not even listened to it ...)Is it better than everyone else's favorite toy
...I'm just setting out the question so when other folks get their amps up and running I want to know if they encounter noise issues and what they may need to do. If they work fine with single ended cabling longer than a few meters then I will be encouraged to try them out.Certainly a balanced system reduces possibility for noise but I cannot go there and want to see how others fair. I think it is a potential issue for others to know as well so I'd like to see users tell us their configurations so we can see how this pans out....
I've had my NCORE's since late January and posted this review in early Feb (http://www.computeraudiophile.com/threads/10466-New-nCore-400-Amplifier?highlight=ncore). I have not heard an amplifier that can match the NCORE in terms of accuracy, resolution and musicality. Some of the amps I've had in my system over the recent past include:Atma-Sphere M60's (Class A OTL)Class D SDS-224 (Class D)Hephaestus (Class D)Pass Lab XA30.5 (Class A SS)Boulder 2050 (Class A SS)Custom hybrid - tube gain stage, SS output stageLinn Klimax SoloHalcro dm68If you can acquire the NCORE via the DIY channel the price/performance is outstanding.
I have not heard the XA 30.5 but I assume it is as good as Aleph 3 if not better. If that is the case, I would love to hear the Hypex NCore! (not currently in the US though)
I got to listen to 6 bands last Sunday at the International festival at Silver Dollar City. Some bands were outside, some were inside in small and large auditoriums. Every band had a different flavor, as some say here about amps. It would take me 6 different sounding systems to reproduce the sound I heard.The Italian opera band had a huge sound. That would take something like OTL's.The Russian Big Band would be more tube like, maybe an older tube amp. The Country Hawaiian Band would probably sound more like the Ncores, it was very smooth and detailed. The Mariachi band was more like a bright sounding Class A amp. That band about took my ears off. But the vocals were huge and luscious sounding. The Honduras band was very small sounding and soft, maybe a soft Class D amp. The Irish band was also bright sounding, small vocals, a terrible Class B amp.Every band I heard was different, and this was all live. So which live band was correct?
Will these be in Northeast NJ or Manhattan? I'd like to give them a listen...
