2 ncore & 2 smps

I knew I was going to get charged since the day I ordered, but it still always hurts.

I pay 13% sales tax (combination of federal and provincial) on everything I purchase including imported goods. Declared value of the ncores on the paperwork from hypex was about $1350 so 13% of that + $10 ups brokerage fee & the 13% tax on the brokerage.

Total was $184.50. Only way around it would have been having hypex mark the value lower or ship it to a US address and then smuggle it into Canada.

I'm sure it will be worth the extra $184.50 though

so I guess I wasn't the only one to go to great lengths in order to "cut down the cost" of a $1000 part (don't ask...)

That is still cheaper than paying 19% Sales Tax we have to do in the Netherlands!

Hi, RogerSch.
I have ordered same cases and am very interesting in yr expirience on this case assembly and the layout.
Would you mind to public a couple of pictures of NCore without the upper cover to have a close look at the inner parts, please.
That will help much.
Andrey
P.S. my first post here.

I'll need to split my interconnects with three wires emerging from each preamp output channel. Some cable makers like Purist Audio will build custom cables this way.
I though this was the DIYaudio forum

I am using a CAT6 cable - perfect for 3 audio pairs and one pair for remote on/off to the amps.

Or I could go all active with the Hypex DSP board...
That's what I am planning on, but using a DCX2496 until then,
