Still, my vinyl sounds much better.
Even the vinyl produced from digital masters?
Yes, very much so. It is even worse than that! I run my tube phono preamp into my Tact 2.2X preamp and it digitizes the signal yet again! Because of this, every vinyl record that I listen to is digitized. Still I get the tingles.
I figure this might be the place to ask but why do people bash on the ncores so much? Don't cost enough?
I figure this might be the place to ask but why do people bash on the ncores so much? Don't cost enough? Excellent performance can be had for cheap while fancy expensive artsy chassis is optional? The power amp is supposed to amplify the signal with minimal alteration of the sound and that's what it does right? If you don't like the sound try a different preamp/dac. Plus they appear to be able to run almost any speaker while being fed with pretty much any preamp. I went with ncores because I wanted to buy one amp and be done with it. I wanted the amp to power my RAAL towers to their max with some power to spare. I wanted a high enough SNR that the background is pitch 'black'. They appear to do this very well. As for my system as a whole this is hands down the best I've ever heard and I believe the cost was relatively inexpensive for what it does. The treble from the RAAL tweeters is as smooth and sweet as I can imagine possible. Acoustic instruments and vocals sound like the artist is in the room performing for you. Little details like applause in the background of live shows really comes to life. For some people it is unimportant but I also managed to build the whole system(save the computers) with nothing assembled in china. Speakers and DAC from California, Preamp from Texas, and the Hypex from the Netherlands. All good companies that offer great customer service, take pride in their work, and don't spend an arm and a leg on advertising or paid reviews. All components were the dream of small groups or individuals who wanted to provide excellent performance at very competitive prices.
