Let us hope the wires are better fitted to the connector on the new cable. They came loose just by looking at them on the old one.

I got the same email quoted above, but never bothered to ask for new cables....

one thing I tend to do recently is pour some hot melt glue or even epoxy on joints that could lead to problems. a wire is a wire and sooner or later will be torn at its weakest spot (normally, the joint).

Finally assembled my dual mono nCore.

Is my wiring correct?

XLR pin 1 to ground of chassis
XLR pin 2 to blue wire of input cable
XLR pin 3 to white wire of input cable
Ground of chassis to shield/sheath of input cable.

All AC input, SMPS600 power supply harness and speaker output cable twisted.

I used a bottom mounted on/off switch, located at the front left of the chassis.

PS. Sorry the flash overexposed the colour of the blue/white wires of the Mogami/QuietConduit input cable so they both appear white.

The casework may not have good continuity from rear panel to bottom panel. I use Hifi2000 cases and found they need a cable link between panels for a good ground.

Also you should have mains cables double insulated if no earth connection.

I assume the speaker terminals are isolated from the back panel(?)

Picked this up from another forum about the new cables (Mogami?):

I would certaintly like to see the explanation of this from Hypex.

can't see how a link to the discussion would hurt.

I will look into that, and check the continuity with my multimeter.

Yes, I was planning to do that. Then I figured that the anodized surface is non conductive, so I only placed an insulating layer over the top of the AC input terminals to keep prying fingers off.

Yes, by intrinsic design of the speaker terminals.

Explain reduced granularity?

is a fairly commonly used term to describe a certain sound quality. Often in association with solid state vs. tube, where solid state has traditionally sounded more granular, and tube gear sounded more liquid.
Consider a photograph as a visible example of the term: film grain means a less continuous tone, a less smooth tone. Now extrapolate to audio:

More liquid=smoother, less granular.

Thanks Barrows,

I read Wikipedia and it said something like ' reduced granularity = less detail....' so I wondered...
