My message was not directed at you specifically, but at all the audiophile "tweakers" who think that there are all these engineers and designers with an advanced education and decades of industry experience who suddenly just forget to use the proper grade of capacitor or connector - but fortunately there will always be the enthusiast who knows better and will sort it out.
You and ds23man sound like snobs who think they know it all.

The ncore400 will not fit for everybody, i think it fit just for a very view people. Like a lot of class D products. Personaly i can not listen longer then 30 minutes to a class D product whitout getting the urge of throwing it in the carbage can.
The last 30 years the engineers designed the CD player, class D amps, very advanced loudspeaker systems but the really best systems i heared had turntables, tube amps and openbaffle speakers. But i am just an old man.

A view Ncore users in the Netherlands have exchanged they ncore400 for a UCD700lp because of the lack of controll. Mostly because they had low impedance speakers or electrostats. It is only dissapointing that hypex not sale that module to the normal consumer. It cost only 35% of de ncore400 and has some better specs.

I just discovered a new application for the ncore: it can be a radio! I had hooked it up to my DAC using some interlink I had laying around. when I stopped listening music, I just switched off the squeezebox, and left the ncore and DAC on. I could hear BBC radio 1 from my speakers after switching to a decent pair of interlinks all is quiet again....

I suggest not to buy a Hypex amp if you don't like them. No one is saying you should and if someone does, you still don't have to. I don't like a lot of different amps, so i don't buy them. Still, i don't feel like everyone should know how i feel about about those miscarriages of engineering.

Put simply, i don't see your point, but just trolling.

I have 2 remarks. First, it seems you affirm all class D sound the same ? What would you think if I wrote: I do not like Class AB amps ? Stupid , isn't-it ?
Second, fast amps can sound aggressive on bad speakers, but it is not the Amp's fault.

Esperado, your right it is all about the combination.
I use a lot of class D amps but all for proaudio and not for homeaudio.

A small rectification it was not a UCD700lp but a UCD700lz where the lz stands for low impedance.
