One thing I noticed that might be similar that I also noticed when comparing against my Aleph Js. The NCore while more overall detailed had a brightness in it and were not as laid back as the Aleph.

I've measured response and distortion in the speaker and them basically measure the same. The brightness is one of the reason I'm now testing to build an F2J to see if midrange and upwards would sound better to my ears. And then measure the distortion in the speaker and compare also since the F2J is a current source which should be interesting to test since my NCore current source conversion tests failed.

it's interesting that the way Abraxas describes the NCORE fits almost perfectly to my F4's sound, compared to my UCD.

I have heard the UCD and your description do not fit anything I have heard at all. You must have done something wrong or just the rest of your setup is s... !

well, if my setup manages to sound decent while being **** at the same time, I guess I'm one lucky guy
obviously, anything coming from you is the absolute truth so you must be right

No truth but I have heard the UCD with fantastic sound . The cost for the total setup was around 2000 Euro and one off the best heard ever. I am in a hifi club and hear lots of setups.

getting into such an argument would have such a predictable outcome so that I'm totally uninterested.

@rha61: Yes, may be.
@Julf: I think I explained that the cabeling/shielding/grounding is not ideal. It's sitting on a bread board. However, I expect my cases the next days and will report back after properly integrating everything.

Hi Sven. I must say I have heard the Ncore in four systems, one being my own, and the amps were totally silent. I would tell you it is not the amps but something else. It could be the layout, wiring, shielding etc. Also I find that if you plug them into any conditioning or filtering of any type you will get the "distant" sound you mention. It really takes the life out of the amps.Again this was tried in several systems all with different setups and PC and filtering. We also found that good vibration control made an improvement. But be careful as some made it worse. Some power cords also made an improvement. YMMV. As good as the Ncore are they will not be to everyones liking, just as types of music and flavors of ice cream. IMHO.

One more clarifying question re the +/– 15V supply inputs, is the current draw per rail?
