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
So we are looking forward for your fresh reviews

Hi Rob and Bruno,

please give me you opinion on choosing Hypex modules for a Bi amped system.

NCore for Mid/High
Bass plays to 220 Hz with first order filter, so there is still some output at 1000 Hz.

Is ncore for the bass necessary or a overkill?
Or should I try a UCD400.

Is there a significant difference for the Bass between the different UCD400 versions - normal, HG, HG with regulator?

I am especially interested in the opinion of people who did hear both modules.

Google's translation of the NCORE thread from the Dutch forum says it all:

"That is a plethora food when you want to remain single and complete"

Same (very interesting) question here :
Same configuration except the bass up to 350 Hz for me.

So more general question : at what frequency do you begin to feel any significance difference ?

Thank you all ...

Rob, it would be greatly appreciated if you could describe a bit more on how you experienced the differences between the UCD, PASS and the ncore which you demoed.

From what has already been translated, you expressed differences in the balance between leading edge and decay where you positioned the UCD to be more bias towards the leading edge and the ncore to excel in much better including the decays too. When you say the ncore seems closer to the presentation of the PASS, do you thereby imply that nocre presented with less emphasis on leading edge, thus more laid back (like PASS) than UCD? Or did refer to your overall listening pleasure with ncore being more in league with the PASS than the UCD?

Not to bend words in anyway, IŽm just very interested in understanding how you experienced the ncore better

BTW, it wouldnŽt suprice me if youŽll find the DIY nc400 even better; it sure has even more impressive specs.

cheers

I would also like a more detailed description compared to your Pass clone.
but what interests me most is overall musicality, not the "FX" factor (soundstage, imaging etc).
detail, imaging are to music what special effects are to movies: they don't make an otherwise bad movie any better
