Well no.

An objective listening test is:
Do A and B sound the same or different?

An subjective listening test is:
Given that it has been shown that A and B do indeed sound different:
Do you prefer the sound of A or B?

Hi again and thanks for responding about the SMPS1200/400

Is this PSU worse than the SMPS600 ? I noticed there is an SMPS1200A700 also?

Just trying to pre plan a potential nc400 BiAmp rig and don't want to be limited, but like the idea for a dual mono case

Out if interest, how many of us have BiAmp rigs and is it worth the extra $$$

Thanks

I have biamp config, and in my system it is worh it.
SMPS1200A400 is the one to use with ncore, not A700.

Has anybody ever heard about using current feedback (from the loudspeakers) with the Ncore modules? It seems that in the KII Three this is done

Thank you for the feedback

The SMPS1200/400 which powers 2 x modules cost the same as the SMPS600, so is it an inferior PSU for the nc400, which is my only worry?

the smps1200 is used with the high-end nc1200, so I do not think it is inferior, I think it is better (but I do not know this).
the drawback is that you get 5W more heat dissipation from each nc400. The smps600 has an extra regulated powerline reducing the voltage regulation that needs to be done by nc400. But my guess is that nc400 has better regulator than smps600, because it has the LEDs like an "superregulator".

Thanks. Do we know how much 5W translates into Celcius on the nc400 though!? 8-/

Still can't help but wonder, it's been 3-4 years for nc400 ....when is Meneer Bruno releasing his next version, or tweak to this nc400?

I read him considering changing the tone from, possibly, a bit less dead-pan!

There is no real reason for it to be better or worse - it is very much the same technology.
