VOLUMIO soundcheck invitation for Hamburg, Germany

Postby rost21A » Thu Jun 20 2019 20:58

Hello
I can not quite understand that. I suspect something is wrong with the nCore amp that was used. He is probably too weak, the MP series unsuitable or anything else. I don't know...
We made our amp comparisons with nCore 400 nCore 500. The results were extremely positive on nCore. We all had the old amplifiers sold and now only use nCore 400 or nCore 500 amps.

Hi rost21A
yes, the 75W amp was probably too weak for my 2 pairs of 4 OHM speaker. i also think the MP series is only an entrance modul.
Seriously, I would not want to swap my marantz PM6003 for the little hypex mp.
think, you have to go for nCore 400 or better nCore 500 amps for being more satisfied.
On the other hand, there are other alternatives from the price of a nCore 500 amp.
I also heard that some manufacturers here are also having an amplifier in their pipeline... (BOSC, etc.)
best, judydudi

Judi,

Are you testing the Katana exactly the way it comes from the factory or did you upgrade the power supplies?

If so which ones are you using and how many?

Thanks;
Leo

Hello
These amps from Purifi should, according to first reports of experience, beat everything that has been developed so far. I'm looking forward to the prices ...
Also developed by the Class-D father ... Bruno Putzeys :D

https://www.purifi-audio.com/eigentakt/

Here are the first reports

yes I am also curious about the new digital amplifiers, but

Guys, I'd like to let you know that I've found the right amp for my future DAC board soundchecks.
I am now the proud owner of a Cambridge audio azur 651w.

In addition, I have decided to make modifications to the amplifier.
Mr. Horwege did that for me. About 60 components were replaced.
Now, the amplifier brings the sound into the room with a great clarity, fast, effortless and with beautiful timbres, just as the sound is :)
So it sounds better than anything I had before.
I'm looking forward to the next soundchecks... again focused on the I2S volumio devices.

Can you please post the exact configuration of all the devices from the last sound check. Especially if components like power supplies were upgraded form what comes from the factory.

Thanks

I think that in order to make this a much more fair comparison the factory PSU should be used for all units as most users will not upgrade the PSUs as you have.

As a separate note how much does the Thel dual LPS cost?
