The custom-built preamp used was a Stereo Single Triode Linestage using a matched pair of RCA globe 171A tubes with dual mono tube regulated power supplies (Gen-Rad 1201-A). It's a pretty low gain preamp. The source was a Philips 963 SA Transport / SACD player feeding into a Eastern Electric DAC Plus with Dexa Discretes (Brimar T-Series 6067 tube used). Power cables all Triode Wire Labs ( ); interconnects were Groneberg Quattro Reference, digital cable was Black Cat Veloce. The 12" Tannoy Golds in custom cabinets have a nice, high quality bass response measured into the upper 20s (Hz)...Cheers,Pete
I believe the NCores deserve a better DAC and I am looking at the NAD M51. That's the problem with the NCore, you want to start upgrading the source components
Hi there,I'm new to this thread but have been lurking... =) Actually partly because of this thread and the positive listening impressions, I made my order and am now listening to my new amps. (I´ll post a couple of pics to the 'Show us your Ncore thread soon.)Just wondering about Jason's (jtwrace) NC400's build... Do they use the basic power cable (from ac input connector to smps600) that comes standard with the modules? This I ask because when I subtituted that cable for Belden power cable, there was a sustatial improvement in sound. The said knowlage would give a better perspective of the posted listening impretions.Thanks!- Jukka

I also found significant sonic advantage replacing stock power wire with Cardas litz on my Hypex UCD unit. The input wire also made a big difference. I think the stock wiring is a deficient to the amps potential, at least the UCD series.
...what if any adverse events have been reported with the Hypex NC400 design - any catastrophic failures, or reliability issues of note?
