I am very happy owner of Hypex nCore amplifier.
My expensive BAT Pre / Power Amps have been replaced with Hypex nCore 400 Power Amp and I never regret it!

Preamp: Bel Canto c5i
Amp: Bel Canto REF500S II

There is a 60 wpc amp in the c5i and it really doesn't control the bass that well. The REF500 really grabs hold of the bass drivers: much higher damping factor. The speakers are sealed box (NHT 2.3a) and the roll-off should be 6dB/octave down low, but the c5i amp doesn't handle that too well.

I recently compared my TPA3255 based Class-D Amp with a Jean Hiraga Class A Amp. The vocals sounded much better, and the whole music was effortless from the JH. Want to build it now.

Cambridge Audio CXA80
It has an integrated DAC ,Wolfson WM8740.
It works out of the box with Volumio on Raspberry Pi, using the async USB input of the amplifier.
It supports both PCM (up to 24/192) and DSD 64.

I'm pleased with my configuration so far but I would like to lay my hands on B&W speakers sometime in the near future :D

Hi,

in the kitchen, I use a RPi3+ with Hifiberry DAC+ and Linn Classik Movie, powering a subwoofer-sat-system from Visaton.

In the dining room, a RPi3+ with Hifiberry AMP2 (and an old Dell Notebook S-PSU) and KEF KHT-2005 "Eggs" with subwoofer.

Both systems are sufficient for background music or cooking with extractor fan :D

Are you satisfied with the power and handling of the SMSL? I thought about it, too.
