I love how this endless list of top end amps is bested by the ncore, but people are still like, yeah.... But I wonder how it would compare to my midrange, average amp, cause that would be a REAL contest
What I want to know is how it will compare to a NAD amp.
You guy's are killing me...... where do I order
How many modules can be strapped to a single power supply?
Three years ago when I listened to the Hypex UcD modules I instantly knew they were severe over-achievers. To this day I still know this to be the case. Point being, I'll bet my underwear that the Ncore and UcD share a lot more in common (sonically) than most folks might think. (Why might I think that?)
I find this thread quite amusing. Three years ago when I listened to the Hypex UcD modules I instantly knew they were severe over-achievers. To this day I still know this to be the case. Point being, I'll bet my underwear that the Ncore and UcD share a lot more in common (sonically) than most folks might think. (Why might I think that?)Maybe I should have sent my UcD amps around the country to gain audiophile acceptance instead of keeping the secret all to myself.
Actually ,Hopefully .The Hypex 1200 be available for DIY sooner then later
Reality is that these things are very expensive. Not many people would send a company $1,500 for what is essentially a product prototype. However, I do hope they live up to what some posters indicate is world class sound. Nick77 answered my PM and has graciously agreed to let me hear them at his house here in Austin after they arrive.
I have been following thr Ncore saga since last summer. I would disagree they are a product prototype, this is a fully engineered product that was designed for the DIY market. The DIY market had done a lot to get the word out on the UcD modules and are doing the same with the Ncore.They also have modules with more power that are geared for the OEM market for those uncomfortable with hooking up the NC400's IMO the price is very fair the assemply work is far less than simpler than with most amps. They probably sell more amps through the OEM channel than through the DIY channel. It is very nice of Bruno to make these modules to the DIY market, especially when you see the prices derived from the NC1200 modules.I am sure not everyone will feel they are the 'best' amps, but based on what I am reading they seem to provide a great price/performance, reminds me of the Gedlee speakers, perhaps not the 'best' but clearly a great price performance proposition .These amps are somewhat expensive for a kit, but not any more than some 300b amps for example.
Hi Ted, hope all is well with you. I heard the Clayton's at jtwrace's house about 2-3 weeks before I got my NCOREs. His system is almost identical to mine. I sent Jason my NCOREs where he and Anand had the opportunity to A/B them versus the Clayton. Jason and Anand both bought the NCORE based on that audition. I also sent mine to Tom S who subsequently bought them.
