Hi Theodosis O
The NCore listening test was at my house.
You are correct that it was the NC1200 oem unit but Bruno told there will be not much difference in sound between the two.
We compared the units against an PassLabs clone AX200 with I already use for years and compared to al lot of different amplifiers also the UCD180 UCD400 and UCD700.
I find the PassLabs clone better sounding on my speakers the the Hypex UCD models.
But I like the NCore more than the PassLabs clone.
Yesterday I ordered 2 NCore and power supply's.

Rob

You need high quality loudspeakers to show the differences; as always it is the weakest link to be the dominant factor, and most of the time that is the loudspeaker.

what was the system NCORE was tested in? (source and loudspeakers)

and I too have the feeling that sometimes the UCD can sound a bit dull (pieter, you can throw a party now). OTOH it sounds much cleaner compared to other amps. let's keep the reports coming...

Loudspeakers were I think Avalon clones, with hexacone bass driver in a low tuned bass reflex, and Accuton ceramic drivers for mid and treble; surely a system capable of demonstrating differences between amplifiers.
Source I don't know but will have been up to the task no doubt.

The Ncore is better than the PassLabs clone but in my opinion closer to the passlabs then the normal UCD.

Cd player Denon A1 UGS preamp from passlabs forum with some small modifications which you can read over there.
Speakers are a Eidolon Clone.
