Please do not compare Ref Evolution with Hypex NC500 etc. That's the job of STA-9, STA-6. Or ST-10.
Come on guys, we designed this amp to compete with the best amps in the world, at any freaking price. Bring it on
Sorry I went overboard a bit. I have a simple explanation why NuPrime is able to innovate while Hypex and other volume production amp companies don't do (I didn't say they can't)
NuPrime designs amps for its own consumption. Our chief engineer is free to innovate and if the new design costs more, then it goes into a newer model at higher price.
On the other hand, a volume production amp company has to keep its cost low (most of these amp modules are sold way below the retail parts price that you can buy online, at 1000 or 5000 units quantity, it is really really low
). Sure they can innovate, but that's not their business model. They use large OEM factories to make these boards at low cost, and you just can't make 100 to 200 pieces at a time.
It is like buying a burger from McDonald, even if it is their top of the line Angus beef burger, it is still mass produced, not the same as what you can get from a fine restaurant.
