Default Hypex UcD180HG HxR or 400HG HxR ?

I'm thinking of building a stereo amp with either of these modules, just for the fun of it. Is there any significant difference in sound quality between the two?

I will be using Hypex' own switched PSU in any case.

I've asked myself the same question. Nothing obvious in the specs so I was thinking the 180; cheaper, still plenty of power, and probably a more favorable disposition to typical listening powers. Decided I like the idea of DIY with the ADAU1592 better though, so it's unlikely I'll be getting any amp modules from Hypex.

The Hypex stuff is pretty darn expensive, but anyway... I got a nice deal and have ordered two UcD180HG HxR and a 180W switched PSU.

Will be interesting to see (or hear.....) how it compares to the ICEpower ASX2 modules that I currently use in my system.

ICEpower is not an option for you DIY people though, B&O dont sell them to individuals. Too bad, since they are really good and very easy to work with.

Hi Stig Erik,
I'm too buying the same modules as you. Which casing would you use to house the modules?
I have found some alternatives, but importing anything to Norway is expensive.

Hi Jan-Peter,
I live 10 minutes away from Dynabel, and was there last week. They offered me to loan a UcD 400HG HxR. I just didnt have money for a deposit then
I will buy the modules from them soon, but i asked them about the housing/casing to put the modules in. They don't have any. Found some alternatives outside Norway, but if i can find something in Norway i wouldn't mind
If you buy for more than €25 from abroad there is VAT, and also a lot of shipping costs.

Btw, I'm norwegian, but partly dutch and I always have keen eye for everything dutch, from sports to of course amplifiers

Espen

I ordered my modules from Dynabel in Oslo.

Casings are pretty expensive to buy from Norwegian dealers, so me and a friend bought 20 pcs from Italy (Modushop.it), very nice and cheap.

It's so far my best choice too. Though I'll manage with two. Hopefully i can fit three modules and two SMPS in a 430x300mm box? Alternatively 400mm deep. If thats not enough then i could split them up in more cases.

The casings we bought from modushop.biz was "Galaxy Maggiorato GX388 330 x 280 mm". They are 2U heigth, you'll need that since the PSU is too tall for a 1U chassis. If you mount the UcD modules and the PSU at the side profiles for cooling, it should be possible to fit two UcD 180 and a 180W PSU at each side, for a total of 4 amplifier channels in one chassis.
