A) The Mola Mola isn't out yet so there isn't yet the definitive NC1200 amp, as gorgeous sexy as the Atsah's are.B) until someone can compare a Mola Mola and bridged pair of NC400's, it's all speculation. People seem to forget the formidable bridged 400 in the newness of the new 12's. Now the reports of the NC400's sound quality are well documented. The reports on the NC1200 are nebulous and laced with suspicion,by comparison. Terse, questionable, highly incomplete. Better, or voiced, indeed. There is yet no definitive answer.
There is yet no definitive answer.
Copy/paste of my opinion when asked on diyAudio:I do not know why the Veritas amps sound so good, my NC400 amps were put together very basically and still sounded the best I had heard. So, the sound... All the buzzwords, I guess. Deathly quiet, palpable room loading, unbelievable low end control, amazing detail extraction without stridency, terrific separation of musical lines while still naturally blended, etc.
Can two audiophiles agree on Ohm's Law, much less amplifier subjective sound quality? Just playin...
You might consider a deeper study of the industry.While I occasionally share your disgust with all the above, I would give Bruno my highest rating. While no one who sells equipment can be divested of sales results, either consciously or subconsciously, Bruno is good imho!!
Nobody is suggesting a marketing ploy. The amps are what they are and all will be revealed in time. What I meant was, the perception of these initial reviews, and not necessarily by me, was that they were suspect merely because there was apparently a beta program available. Let's everybody calm down some, please. My own skepticism, otherwise, is valid until proven otherwise by a credible comparison. And please reread what I said. I am very interested in the 1200's, I even said I think the Mola Mola's will be the best. I'm sure they will sell boatloads of them. If I had 13K on standby, for amps, that's exactly where my money would go.
So are you saying for each of those qualities listed above, the NC1200 really outperforms the NC400?
Actually, I think a bit of skepticism concerning sound quality differences (unrelated to the power difference that is) between the nC400 and nC1200 is warranted. Many have suggested that the excellent perfromance of the nCore amplifiers is related to their superior measurements. Well, the nC400 measures better than the nC1200, this is one reason for skepticism. Additionally, Mr. Putzeys himself is on record as suggesting that there is no significant difference in sound quality between the two.
Does anyone know why the Atsah uses the Hypex soft-start module? I remember reading that the SMPS700 already had that "built-in".
Do your new VERITAS amps have the soft-start module?How about a picture of the VERITAS's insides?
I do not think there is any mystery as to what is inside the Veritas' cases. They describe the build in detail at their website, talking about the chassis, the wiring, and the Synergistic fuse. From their description it is quite clear that there is a stock SMPS and nC1200 module internally. Perhaps there is a nice layout, and perhaps separate compartments in the CNCed block for the power supply and amp module, but beyond that, what is there... nothing much, just a quality implementation of an nC1200 build.
