Not that because it works fine when I connect it direct to my source

Hello Studley,

Sounds like a frustrating issue. Input transformers can resonate 10 dB (or so) at around 40 kHz to 80 kHz. This may cause instability issues or perhaps input overload with a leaky DAC. At the least, resonance can give you a couple dB's of lift at 20 kHz. That lift might sound irritating...

You can properly damp the resonance with an RC Zobel using component values recommended by the manufacturer.

For reference, see pages 370 and 371 of DS's "Small Signal Audio Design" for his discussion of circuits and FR graphs of this issue. He shows a Zobel of 3K3 ohm in series with 4n3 across the output of a Sowter 3276.

Jensen Transformers, accompanied by their recommended compensation circuits, also work well IME.

Apologies, if you have performed this compensation already.

HTH,

David

Have you tried just using a RCA-to-XLR cable (wired according to the hypex data sheet) without the transformer?

Is the NC400 module stereo or single channel? I cannot find this info on their product spec page.

Question: Is the new NCore technology proprietary to Hypex, or is this a new Class D industry designation available to other vendors? I'm particularly interested in how this (NCore) technology compares to the B&O ICEPower Class D amp modules.

The nCore technology is proprietary to Hypex (similar to how ICEpower is to B&O), but there are two versions of the modules, one exclusively aimed for DIY community and one aimed for commercial markets and brands (similar to how ICEpower modules are).

Just get 2x NC400 and one SMPS600 to start then add the second SMPS600 when funds allow.
