Understood.Of course, I have the luxury of the having the built in subs and not asking the amps to handle below ~100 hz.George
When the NC400s are bridged do any specs change besides power? When some amps are bridged the noise floor decreases significantly. That can contribute to a sense of increased dynamics.
Interesting...My speakers are also a 4ohm load (Vandy 5A's) and even less efficient at 86 or 87 db's. My room is 29x17x8 and opens up into the kitchen and a 2 story entrance foyer. I played music so that it hit over 100 db peaks from 15-17' away and I never heard the amps clip, get hard or glassy.Is that 4 ohm load a nominal 4 ohms with dips much lower?Just goes to show...careful system matching is always required.George
Well my bridged monos ship today from Houston to Dallas so they should be her in a couple of days. I have not heard so many good things about an amp (from people who are not fans of class D no less) in a long long time. The guy that built my amps is not a big fan of class D, when he first got all four modules in the chassis he tested each of them to make sure all was well. He did this by going of to a friends, a well known Class D designer. He told me their mouths dropped and they could not believe how good the NCOREs sounded. Last night they repeated this process with the amps bridged, using Revel speakers the model just under the top of the line. Both thought the improvement by bridging them was out of this world. My guy told me it was one of the best amps he has every heard, this is from a tube guy. So I asked, well does that put them in the top 5 or top 10? He responded one of the top three amps he has every heard! No I didn't ask what the other two amps were as it didn't matter, he said the highs where the best he every heard. I can't take it, can't wait till they get here. More to come.Guy
