no problem, the tube/low NFB "subjectivist" camp will always find some other excuse

once again we disagree. I think we were meant to
comparison to any reference is not useless as long as it tries to be more than the regular "beats the pants off" kind of "review".

as someone said in a private conversation I've had recently "problem customers will always complain no matter what, while the happy customers usually don't bother to post impressions".

No truer words have ever been spoken. I certainly have found that to be the case with customers to my business.

Think that's "just human".

In my opinion you like to disagree: of course it makes sense to compare a new developed amplifier with it's predecessor, being UCD in this case. But it is evident that the new developed Ncore comes out of UCD with the objective to improve on it's predecessor; makes sense right?
But that is not the point, the point IMO being how Ncore performs compared to other well regarded (preferably DIY) designs; that is at least what has my (and I guess quite some forum members') interest.

huh what a coincidence, that's the exact some impression you've confirmed for a while now you seem to gladly jump in only when there's some disagreement.

you did not get it so I'll explain again.
it makes sense to compare the NC to any known reference, be it UCD or anything else. saying "NC has a wider sound stage compared to amp X" tells a whole different story than "it sounds better than amp X".
anyway, reality tells us that we (me and you) are not going to get what we're expecting (see above posts for an explanation).

My fingers itched too much and I ordered a pair of modules... when they arrive I'll post my comparison against my Aleph Js. If someone here conveniently lives in Stockholm and wants to hear and review for themselves and (and post it here) they are welcome =)
