The bottom line is that member "Stig" finds the NCores better. There I just saved you some time.
Hmm, curious to know how do YOU find them! What pre-amp are they to be used with? Can they work with tube pre?
When I heard them at jtwrace's it took me but a few minutes to realize we were on to something over the top special. I ordered mine, the very next day, and like you will hopefully be in receipt of my modules/powersupplies by May 2012.
What pre-amp are they to be used with? Can they work with tube pre? Also, can they be used with linear power supply too?
That's exactly what my friend used for his build...just wondering if we were somehow missing something.I'm all for overkill, but only if there is some logical reason for it. The addition of the soft start just doesn't make any sense to me.-Jim
I believe Mike Galusha used a tube preamp with them during his audition. I will be using a tube preamp (fully loaded Atma-Sphere MP-1 MK 3.1) with them next when I give them a listen.
Has anyone considered using the Bybee Music Rails between the the SMPS and the amplier module to reduce power supply noise even more. Might make a great amp, greaterer! FYI--I have been using Hypex UCD400HGs for three years now and like them a lot. The NCores are on my most wanted list.Chris H.
Let's try and make this easy for newbies (like me). To build a monoblock Ncore amp, you need:suitable case - with enough space for air cooling as recommended in Ncore data sheetNcore amp boardHypex SMPS600 PSIEC socketconnecting wire1 XLR input1 RCA input2 Speakon posts2 Speaker binding post1 on off switchAny special wire or other special characteristics of the above needed? Anything missing from the above?Note: you can build a stereo Ncore in one case with 2 amp modules and just one SMPS 600 supply, but Hypex recommends using 2 power supplies.
If anyone knows about the nAMPON function for sure, please pipe up!
TRL Dude which is a tube pre.
I will be using a tube preamp (fully loaded Atma-Sphere MP-1 MK 3.1) with them next when I give them a listen.
Hmm I'll be quite interested to audition the combo, to note how these ultra low distortion power amps react with tube pre-amps which have quite higher distortion figures.
