    Hypex NCore

    Our Amplifiers are powered by Hypex NCore modules. Simply put Audiophile consensus of opinion agrees these are the current best Class D modules available. 

     

    Nord UP Input Buffer Board

    Class A Where it matters. The Hypex NCore is renowned as a wire with amplification reproducing what it’s fed with unfaltering accuracy and detail. The Nord UP feeds the NCore with a musical, rich tonally dense signal from its Class A Op Amps resulting in an amplifier that keeps the benefits of the Hypex NCore but adds warmth and depth.

    Hypex designed the NCore NC500 with a separate input section to allow manufactures to add their own house sound via the input buffer section.

    We went one step further by designing a board with the ability for you to change the sound of the amp using different Operational Amplifiers or Op Amps via an on board socket, we call it Op Amp rolling.

    We start with discrete Voltage regulators from Sparkos Labs. These provide ultra low noise accurate power with very fast transient responses feeding the NC500 and the discrete Op Amps. Discrete Op Amps are used because they simply sound better. There design and size allows the use of large capacitors and high current operation not possible in IC Op Amps due to size and heat dissipation requirements.

    The board uses tight tolerance metal film resistors and audiophile Polystyrene capacitors throughout the audio stages. A high quality 8 pin DIP socket is provided for easy Op Amp changing. The board is totally interchangeable with the standard Hypex board.

     

    Op Amp Choice

    All our discrete Op Amp choices run in full Class A and offer a warmer more engaging sound than the standard amp. Extra dynamics better deeper soundstage. More depth, texture and naturalness.

     

    93% Efficiency

    Whilst you should not choose an amplifier for its efficiency alone our amps are around 90% efficient at full volume. Idle power consumption is 18W compared to 150-200W for a Class A/B power amplifier. Low cost to run and wont heat your room in the summer. If you choose the 12V trigger option to power the amps on remotely from a Pre Amp the standby consumption is 0W.
