The original NCore thread was split to start a question and answer thread at the request of some contributors. The following post ended up being the lead off post:
I've been watching the Hypex threads on A/C for the past couple of months. The one thing I'd like to see a definitive answer on is: Exactly what is needed to make this a working amplifier? If I ordered the kit from Hypex, what would I need to buy to complete it? A case (obviously), but what else? Is there a parts list somewhere?Thanks,Slush
Sorry for the dumbass question, but are these modules mono or stereo? Do you need 2 modules for a 2 channel amp?
Personally, I find it hard to fault the UcD HG modules. It would be interesting/helpful to hear from someone who has lived with them for a period of time then upgraded to NC. Maybe the ultra-long diyAudio thread contains some of this information?
Mike,Were you running them with single-ended or balanced inputs? The designer seems to place emphasis on balanced for optimum performance.Regards,Dave
Can anyone tell me when finished Ncore (new module) amps will be available for sale for us non do it yourself types. I can't wait to try these amps out. Thanks!Joe
Case, binding posts, IEC, switch, Chassis mount connector for input and very little wire as most of the work is already done for you.
Anyone know if CI Audio has plans to offer a commercial amp based on these modules? If so, I wonder if he plans to "work any magic" on the input stage. @jtwrace: Thanks for the info.
Does anyone see any flaw in my plan
Does anyone see any flaw in my plan - other than the electrocution potential?
Despite the Hypex modules being some of the best at not radiating excessive RF, I believe they (and your other equipment) will benefit from having them enclosed in a metal, grounded enclosure. Just my 2¢.
That is of course until you ask Bruno that question.
A while back, I offered to build one for free so I could document the build for DIYers and get photo samples of my cases. No one was interested.
lowtech - In the scenario I posed above, the modules would not be within 24 inches of anything except my passive XOs which are mounted on plywood and leaning against the drywall. Would they need to be grounded under those circumstances?
