Look at post 4493 (yes this is a fast running thread...), where one of the builders had some issues and called the sound of his Ncores "twitchy"; that's what I was referring to.

..I'd be interested and willing to set up a comparison, but will not take the initiative myself as I am not into the class D stuff.

I would like to build an Y cable but would like to keep the original cables intact.
Or maybe you could provide them in the online shop?
The PCB part is 43045-1200.
The cable part is a 43025-1200.

Thank you Bruno!
Any chance to see the half mounted cable that comes with the nc400 appear in the online shop?
What method/strategy would you recommend for building an Y (or even W) power supply cable?
Should 2 (I would ultimately need 3...) cables be crimped inside each molex receptacle, or could simple 7-way lustre terminals be used on the cable without specific care?

My impression of Ncore so far is:

















It really doesn't sound like anything. Perfect for an amp.
I'll be back with a more glowing review (or maybe not) when I've my new speakers up and running. Sa far they have only been tested with Geddes Abbey speakers, which are a very easy load.

Good to hear you like them!
How are they compared to the UcD's you used before?

Easy vs difficult loads: My impression is that they don't care ... I'm using Ncores for both a ribbon with is 6 ohms flat, and four 21" woofers in parallell which is less than 2 ohms and creates very much back-EMF.

No Kjartan, I did not hear the twitchyness; maybe you should read this thread back a bit further to see who came up with a twitchy sound...

I am on this thread because I am interested in audio (in general), and class D has my interest because it is one of the few real developments in audio over the last years.
As far as I know, but correct me if I am wrong, this thread is open to all members (as it is an open forum), even if they don't own a class D amplifier

Good you are interested, and yes its an open thread.
But why ask sombody to test something you have not experienced, but seen in comment by somebody else, ... and you cannot be bothered to test your self because your not interested in class D.
Maybe I should finish my 4. coffee before continuing .

Pieter,
Chris doesn't have any problem reading English. You actually said, "I am afraid." Perhaps you meant to say something else, as English isn't your native language, but you shouldn't insult Chris for reading your post exactly as you posted it.

You are completely speculating that a SMPS is inferior to a linear supply with ncores (which you don't even own). I don't find those posts useful. Once you have built ncores with a linear supply and as SMPS and taken the time to do an extended listening comparison, please share your experience and let us know. Until then ......
