Mine might be the first tripath comparison, and my Two.2 is all duded up and decked out and ready for a scrap. But it should be a slaughter just based on the difference in headroom alone. I'm pretty excited to try them soon before I get my pair.

I'm mostly interested in Danny Richie's impressions. He's got those $50,000 super star destroyers.

And I have a SET amp, a highly modded tripath, several other tube amps, and another highly rated Class D amp to compare the Ncores to.

This will be very interesting.

I noticed that Rclark and jonbee live in Washington State. Are either one you in the Puget Sound area?
It would great if I could get a listen if you're close enough. :D I live in Port Townsend.

I'm in downtown Seattle. I'm having several friends over when I get them. Send me a PM if you're interested. I'll be comparing it to the amp section (Icepower) in my Cullen modded PS Audio GCC-500. I may have other comparos as well.

I have updated Post #2 as the first member has a chance to listen to them locally.  That means that Rclark will receive them first mid to late next week.

Ended up hanging out with a bunch of friends today (gorgeous 86 degrees) and we ended up at one of the girls parent's house, who ended up having some really nice looking diy speakers, floorstander box type, with a ribbon tweeter, and there were large tube amps connected to the rig. They were actually pretty large. Didn't see a logo on any of it. I did see the rack had really nice vinyl setup and an old school looking Marantz preamp. We were there for maybe about 20 minutes, had some shots, and then left.

They were playing country music but I definitely did lend an ear. The amps had several of those black treasure tubes, I've seen them in pics.

 It sounded alright. Pretty spacious and lush, almost overly so. But I kept thinking about my rig at home and how I definitely prefered the sound of my modded maggies with the modded tripath. There was something almost sloppy about the sound of the other system. Might have been the room. Couldn't quite put my finger on it but I wasn't there long enough.

 If might have been biamped because there was another set of smaller tube amps there up top. Thank god they have air conditioning.

Anyway, yay, Ncores soon.

If you know of a friend in your area that owns some NCores please pass on the tour pair.  I'd like for this to keep moving along as quickly as possible. 

Also, if you have heard these already from the first tour, you will be bypassed.
