Ah, this week it seems to be www dot pstracks dot com/pauls-posts/i-never-thought-id-write-this/13733/"]tubes...
....after three attempts at designing a power amplifier to beat all other power amplifiers made, I threw in the towel
Again, how seriously can you take this when he chose the UcD over the superior ncore? More PS Audio marketing blather I am afraid...I threw in the towel on PS Audio quite some time ago....
Very seriously. I used to work with Paul at PS Audio, and while I admit that sometimes he is a little too free with using hyperbole, he does listen, and he does care about good sound.As far as why he did not use NC-1200, it is because the price of the modules, places a stereo amp in at least the 5 figure territory (and unlike Merrill and Atsah, PS would not use the stock module, they would add their own input stage, raising the price further), and PS Audio does not make products at that price level. They try and provide high value high end sound. I suspect the new amp, when it finally arrives, will provide very very good sonic performance, at a very fair price. I would not dismiss this project until you have a chance to listen.BTW, try listening to a PS Audio Classic 250 amplifier sometime. They did not make that many, but they are very good amps.
cab: Like I said, Paul is a little too loose with the hyperbole!
