You can see that the cols are quite near mounted to each other. We do not measure any real influence between the two amps.

I am hihly looking forward to the English translation of the Danish review!

Hi Jan-Peter,

What are the 470uF caps you are nowadays using on the UcD400? The ones look to have a blue sleeve. That output filter cap also looks like something different then normally used.

Best regards

Gertjan

Hi Gertjan,

Nothing special, the two photos are from prototypes. The UcD402 is planned for a subwoofer/bassgitar amplifier. No need for any sofisticated audiophile rated components.....

Jan-Peter

What do you think, you Hypex guys:

"Conclusion"

If we for a second forget the price of the Hypex modules, we are talking about very high performance. They do nothing wrong and the coherent play style make us addictive to this amp. If you take the price into account the "value-for-money" is extremely high.
The danish testers got rather pleased.

We are very pleased with this review!

Peranders, many thanks for the translation!

Although the UcD400 under review was one of the first version, we have done some interesting audiophile improvement with all newer revisions. In reliability and measurments performance is nothing changed, this was already quite ok....

Regards,

Jan-Peter

It seems that your modules are even so good that our famous texian uses them. He used ICEPower before but for some reason he has switched. Can it be the price?

Hi,

Would you folks be kind enough to post details on the chassis that the review unit was housed in? Is this available for DIY projects, perhaps?

Thanks a lot!

J-P:

Will this plate amp be available directly through Hypex, or will even the finished product be OEM-only?

Can you give us any more details? Features, pricing, availability date? This might be perfect for my next project, especially if theres an easy way to tweak it re: rumble filter and adding Linkwitz or bass shelf type circuit.

Thanks--

Greg
