Doris/customer service

Really? You call this customer service? You respond two (2) weeks after you are emailed? You didn't even READ the email you replied to.

What was my name again? Gavin? Are you sure?

This has been the worst customer support I have experienced on the internet to date.

So then share your results here without repeatedly spamming your revenue generating ad filled website that you also beg for donations from.

You more than likely used your barren "non commercial" website to ***** free engineering samples for your test. It's a little bit unusual to be commenting on a 180OEM module that's otherwise unavailable to hobbyists. IcePower is in murky waters due to it being dumped so frequently, but I could also say the same for that.


-Your idea of what a class d amp is shows some lack of effort. Since you're writing a "guide", you might research it further such that you may correct it.

-Bypassing the input stage ignorantly is likely to bring a change, but unlikely an improvement. As a slight example even the article you linked to as a guide for the common module is wired in a less than optimal way-->he is directly listening to his wires, and to his ground. Good for him that he likes it, but unworthy as a guide of any sort. Any RF TLC at the inputs in either case? Must sound impressive, but oh, the euphony.. You didn't comment or probably even try it with the input stage, odd, just jumped in and ripped it up because of your faith.

-It's pointless having the best and most expensive parts if you don't know how to use them. Like the T-network caps for your OEM are useless as you have them.

-In general, your wiring is a total disaster for any full range digital amp. This should be even better for input stage bypassed operation. Nicer still if you operate it simultaneously at ground zero to an EMI embarrassment like your choice cut. I suppose that really does put them all on equal footing.

-You got "bad results" for Hypex and chose to blame it on one of the best components in existance, good one.

-You're now going to test the HG, "with HXR" (guess what they happen to power) and immediately plan on screwing over the input the very same way in continued blind faith to "reduce the signal path". Consider that you're actually elongating it rediculously. Do you suppose they spent their profit margin putting it there because it does no good and decreases performance? That would be silly? I guess they loved your website.

-While you claim to have tried to make all things equal with the supplies your transformers vary just a little bit and you've got one wired as monoblocks. Your preferred amplifier, very oddly enough, even more so in that you fail to point it out yourself, uses something shall we say to understate, a little bit different than the others?

As it's unlikely you bought that where you claim to have purchased the others, I will infer that it came as a free sample along with the module itself, very slick trick. Your non biased test based on equal footing fails miserably in every way.

Do consider how your preferred results correlate with your VA, and isn't that interesting.

-Now you're going to likely screw up the IcePower module while basic issues go ignored. Notice you fault nothing of your own doing, but rather lay blame to the components and amplifiers.

-"Two of my friends with a lot of experience on music reproduction were present at the test. They always agreed on the grades given"

Ha ha.. "seals it for me". If they knew a damn or were really friends, they'd have stopped you, otherwise the sheep tend to follow the "heard".

In conclusion, what I said before. Good luck with your ad clicks and donations mr. non commercial entity who's spammed his link three times in as many days.

Hi Troy,

Kind of poor taste that, and it's not so relevant to the selling of a module that doesn't work or exist as was the case here.

Guys, keep your comments to technical issues. Drop the personal stuff, and take commercial disputes elsewhere. This is not a request. Anything further in those directions will result in immediate suspension of posting privileges.

I have update my webpage with the last test and normal Hypex modules.

Now I am asking to classdphile member to give more information about the consideration about my new test.

The transformer on the NCD really needs a change. You should be getting less bass than it is capable of.
Hear the real thing!

Since this has degenerated even further, I am closing the thread. Take your commercial disputes elsewhere.
