Mine are up and running now. There is sound.

Better wait a good 7000 hours of break-in before I listen seriously....

Hey StigErik, as long as you clearly mark your impressions as early impressions, bring em on...

Don't keep us in suspense.

This is great stuff, but....
there are two (or three) details I dont like:

The gold output terminals may look fancy, but they dont hold the wire good enough I think. The wires have come loose several times here. Guess it won't be a problem when the module and wiring is mounted in a case though.... so its a minor issue.

LEDs. Why, why, why are there SOOOOOO many of them. Looks like Amsterdam's red light district over here now..... I waiting for dubious women to appear behind my speakers any time soon.

And in all this exitement I managed to yank out all signal wires from the connector. A word of warning: DONT pull the wires, only the connector!

But the sound of this thing.... whow.

"whow" can you be a bit more precise? compared to say... UCDs maybe?
I guess the LEDs are used as precision current sources.

"Whow" compared to UcD180HG HxR.

Oh yes, this is significantly better I think.

The most significant is:

Sound stage. Much more stable and at the same time larger and more spacious. Its no problem hearing where things are placed in a complex soundstage. Rock solid imaging I would say.

Resolution. I hear various sounds, reverbs, and even instruments that just were not there with the UcD! And its much easier to understand what people are singing (the text). The UcD adds some nice sweetness to the sound, but the price is loss of details and resolution. Ncore sounds more "direct" and let you "see" more precisely into the music.

Tonal balance seems to be much the same as UcD, no surprise really.

On a scale from 1 to 10, my rating would be 11.

Thanks to Bruno and Hypex for a very very good sounding amplifier!
