no, you aren't. music is supposed to pe stereo. I don't get the HT fascination either. as a good friend of mine once said "a movie could never convey pure emotion like music does"
were you replying to Juhleren rather than me?

otherwise I don't understand you comments

No, it's just that I need 4 amps per channel (4-way active speaker). So my 4 amps + 2 PSU's box is sort of a monoblock

For my 2 cents.
If the target price can be reached, I will certainly take a stereo case and I'm not at all interested in monoblocks....
I will build a multi channel amp using cheap and second-hand UcD180s
Cheers,
Nic

Very curious to see if we can make this work.

Why music only in stereo? A good multi channel recording (>2) from an SACD or DVD-Audio (Pink Floyd - Wish you were here, War of The Worlds etc.) adds a lot to the music experience. You really get "engulfed" by the music. Of course the back loudspeakers and centre speaker should be on par with the front speakers...

A plain and simple enclosure like the Hexateq Premium one, but then tailor made for one NC400 and one SMPS600, I'm willing to pay 200 euro (incl. tax) per piece and I would order 5 at once...

Oh, wait...! Those crazy people in studios do that already and they call them active loudspeakers.
Then stickŽem om a plate on the back of the speakers and forget about expensive refined mono block enclosures. It would be a sin to stuff such nice aluminum cases inside the speaker

Interesting stuff on that Hexateq page. IŽd say something like that reference 4.0 made for ncore modules would be awesome -especially if it like the ref 4.0 allowed for a good old fashioned power-donut and a small forest of four pole caps. But if made for the SMPS implementation, which most seem to do anyway, something in line with the ref 4.0 should be able to contain a double smps stereo amp, and maybe even with a significant reduction in height compared to the ref 4.0 :O)

I hope this won't turn into a "multichannel vs stereo" discussion, but...
for one, I can't see why I would spend money on more speakers, instead of better ones.
second, the best stereo systems I've heard are capable of extremely spatial sound.
third, what do I do if the music I listen to is not released in multichannel (and most of it isn't)?

This is very off-topic, but one way to get more "spatial" sound from stereo is to place the speakers in 90 degrees angle instead of the classic 60 degrees, and sit in the near field, as close as possible.
