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
I can tell already the NCORE's are better, surprisingly there is a lot more information (where did that come from ).
Last night I listened to a lot of different familiar cuts, and it is so much easier to hear deeply into the fabric of the music to hear all the minute details- it is like a new, cleaner re-mastering of the recordings. I'm loving it.
No issues with "smear", shallow/narrow soundstage, or with the high end?
2) did your builder on the bridged modules do level matching (I think I remember seeing a post where one could adjust output level with a resistor) . The reason I ask is to get optimum cancellation I would expect the levels should be matched between the two.I see the spec on the NC400 calls out for a +/-.5dB difference in gain. Just from some quick calculations if one amp was at -.5dB and the other was at .5dB this would limit cancellation (just because of levels) to 19dB. Perhaps there are other issues too, do we require phase lock between the two units for optimum cancellation - I don't know. . . anyways thats why I am just wondering if there was anything special your builder did. . .
jonbee - it wasn't clear - are you doing bridged too?
