I really did not expect that the Ncore should be superior to UcD and ICEpower 1000ASP in the bass range, and I was surprised at how great the difference turned out to be. The speakers used for testing was my active H-baffle dipoles, crossed over at 200 Hz.

Thanks for the answer.
With a woodden box, the earth is unconnected, and the signal ground is located at one single point ?

Does a metal case has some advantages ?

Are you using balanced or unbalanced connectors?

As the nCores have differential inputs, there isn't a need for a magical "single ground point" - you connect the input cable/connector shields to the circuit grounds at the input connectors.

Yes - it does provide both shielding and cooling.

Similar experience, I built NC400 amps and now have Merrill Audio Veritas NC1200 amps. They have allowed me to have no subwoofer and I have NEVER heard such bass control. MBL 101e Mk2 speakers.

Very interested in the comparison between the Ncores and the Veritas amps - were the Veritas noteably different to the Ncores and with which specific aspects ??
