Would the LCD still be needed for the slave preamps, then?

No it's not needed but still displays master volume if it is installed

"If it is installed" implies some installations may not have the LCD present, interesting since the slave would be more discreet than the master.

Also: HDMI input? Really? That solves a couple of my problems.

All preamps come with user interface/LCD display installed but if in future there was a need for a custom higher channel count unit with multiple slave boards then it would still only require one display as the displays on the slave boards would be superfluous.

Does the HDMI input conform to the HDMI audio spec, or is it PS Audio only? A number of high end Bluray players have dedicated HDMI audio outs so plug & play would be wonderful.

Initial listening was positive so I left the disc (Donald Fagen Nightfly) playing while doing housework. "New Frontier" came on... "waaaaait a minute, what is this texture on the snare?" Housework went straight to Hades, displaced by a more focused listening session.

Kudos to Stefan Whatcott for bringing us fine multichannel amps, and NCore is all Bruno says it is. Three mutant thumbs and a pseudopod way way up!
Many thanks for the enthusiasm. I'm glad you like it.

There was nothing wrong exactly - just that the large coloured square has a roll-over animation, spinning over to change colour. Which is kind of entertaining when bored.

I'll clear the cache or use Chrome, maybe there's a photo there?

Anyway, it all sounds excellent - I've been holding off for DSP with at least 192KHz processing for a good while. They've always been crazy-price high end and probably much less functionality.
