Default Hypex NCore NC500 build

Hi All
First post here. Thanks for all the info you guys share and some amazing projects going on out there.
So I've been putting together some Hypex Amps to sell a UcD180 UcD400 and a NC500 based amp. The NC500 certainly has some grunt! here are a few pics so far. I'm now on the search for a preamp to complete the line up. I have some cases coming in to evaluate. The idea is to mill the front panel and perhaps add some veneer as I also build IPL Acoustics kits and do lots of veneering. If anybody out there needs a few pointers in veneering or building IPL kits I would be happy to offer advise.

hi,

Where did you get access to NC500? Are you an OEM?

hi jojip I am, be it a small one I build speakers from IPL Acoustics kits and represent Abrahamsen Audio a Norwegian brand in the UK. I'm putting together some Hypex amps to sell in the UK along with complete DIY kits with full instructions. There are people out there not confident/skilled enough to contemplate a full DIY build.

Thanks Boggit.

When you say "along with complete DIY kits with full instructions", are you planning on some DIY kits based on NC500 ?

Not on the Hypex NC500 the NC500's are not for the DIY market, Only UcD module kits and NC400 kit. I'm hoping to offer complete finished Stereo or 2 Mono blocks based around the NC500's for 999.

Thats a decent price for a NC500 amp considering that NC400 DIY would cost in that range as well.

Please...! Rearrange the setup in a way that the the supply wires of the Ncores and all signal wires of the Ncores and all audio signal PCBs do have a safety distance and/or double isolated wires vs. the AC main inlet wiring and vs the primary side of the PSU.

Especially, when you intend to sell your amps such flaws are simply irresponsible.
Recall your products. Get the EN60065 or the newer EN62368.
Read it, understand it. If necessary consult a safety expert.
Don't wait until you get jailed, because of dead customers.

Please!! Its purely a prototype to evaluate the sound/build/feasibility etc. I'm an electronics engineer. Its not even the final case it will go out with, its built on plywood!! Sounds great though. There are many design elements I have to take into consideration before release. But I thank you for your concern.

Default sccp led

Hi Boggit,
I've seen on the pict of your NC500 proto that both 'ready' & 'over current' led's are lit. - Is it a fault or just a wrong indication of the SCCP led ? (assuming your amp works normally) -
How hot your modules are when running, especially the caps temperature ?
Thanks for your inputs ;-)
G.

Speaking with Hypex regarding this. Amp works fine but yes the caps got very hot.
