ncore and power outage
« on: 5 Oct 2013, 09:52 am »
my power grid is unreliable with several blackouts a day. how does the ncore react with power outage / blackouts ? will it cause damage to the amp or speakers ? (loud pop?) do i need a extra protection circuit then?

[additional info / questions]

i will use a power inspired ag1500 ac regenerator (but without a battery) for better ac quality with 1500VA for 2 ncore monos and a pair of current hungry magnepan mg12 magnetostatic speakers.

would you place the monos direct behind the magnepans to have the speaker cable as short as possible or would you place them further away in one dual mono enclosure because of microphonic or electrostatic interference from the speakers?

i would like to make a hotrodded version of the ncores (no binding posts/iec outlet/power switches). any reason against it (aside reselling chances)?

is there a tutorial for the ncore build for people who wont scroll through 700+ pages? if not would you please post the most important ones for me ?

enclosure (damping, shielding, spiking, aluminium or wood enclosure, links?)
cables (speaker cables, power cables (Lapp olflex 110 or 891), solder)
twisting and best placement for power, speaker, xlr cables? ...
(i will build and buy the parts in EUROPE)
