I think it depends on the speakers. My Coldamp get hot to . No difference between NCORE and Coldamp in that case.

Default Ncore cable

Is there anyone who has some experience with the new input cable that comes with the nCore?

This is the same type of argument used for the "Ultra tweeter". It's quasi-scientific.
Eating and drinking something tasty is nevertheless a well known method of making a system under evaluation more digestible

Maybe the sugar should be placed on the table instead of on the speaker. Pseudo-scientific or not, that probably depends more on what you are to prove...

the "microphone" cable supplied with the amps (intended to connect the amp to the XLRs) you mean? I used them, what sort of experience are you looking for?

I ordered the nCores earlier this year and got different (yes, xlr) cables shipped with it. Now I received the new ones. Build on Hypex specs I guess. I'm curious if there is a big difference with the previous ones before I deassemble my 5 channel amp.

I guess he is looking for a subjective analysis of whether there is any difference to the original one?

Can someone from Hypex explain what the point is with the new cable? And please; somehing a bit more theoretical then "because it's sounds much better".
That' as ridicolous comment from a representative of Hypex (something someone received in a mail).

about ultrasonics... IMO the relevant question is: aren't there other areas where an amp is more likely to fault that should be addressed first? there's a lot of focus on this as if it it's proven fact that it's the first and foremost concern WRT sound quality.

That is the information I received from Hypex:
"Dear Customer,

The runaway success of the NC400 has spurred Hypex to develop a signal cable to match the quality of the amplifier. The QuietConduit cable, which draws on our experience designing the HG interlinks, is now being shipped as standard with the NC400 module. To earlier customers who still have the old cable we would like to offer the opportunity of receiving a set of QuietConduit signal cables free of charge"

I ordered the cables but I've no intention of replacing my current very short cables but might use them in the future if I'm going to change my setup and my current in use cables are too short for the new setup. (Maybe I'm going to bi-amp my front speakers and then I might use two of them in a new enclosure of one SMPS600 with two NCore400.)
