    Cool, Adam. Will be interesting to read your thoughts once you get them received and run in. I'm not sure what the recommended run-in time is for the revision D versus revision C build is, but I know Rev C new out-of-the-box amps (including new chassis and power supply) took me over 600 hours for them to come into their own.

    If you have patience I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the performance of the Nord amplifiers.

    Please let us know how you get along.

    My Rev.D SI-990 order won't be ready to ship until the end of the month. I too will burn it in for a little while before putting it into my 2ch system.

    Hello Guys
    Here a recently owner of a Nord One UP NC500DM Stereo with Rev C boards.
    I've been following this thread since some weeks ago and it has a LOT of infomation! Very useful.
    I've have bought also the new Rev D boards and I think I will go with Sparkos Op Amps because I've tried both Op Amps in my Rev C boards and I prefer Sparkos by a not small margin.
    I dont know how to explain it, but the Sparkos sound more analog, less metallic, to my ears and in my system, if that expression makes sense.
    Just my opinión.
    Cheers

    There has been a lot of discussion about the Rev D boards and the impact of the change. Alex, who frequents this board, has written a great review of the update and the impact on the sound quality at: https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/1...wer-amplifier/

    Hope you enjoy.

  11. Thanks Showroom Dummies thanked for this post
