    Re: Nord One Up Ncore NC500 amps, Class D ready for prime time .....

    Hello Samoyed
    Im sorry for the late reply.
    I have the Nord One UP NC500DM stereo with Rev D boards and Sparkos Op Amps.
    Ive had before the same amp, but with Rev C boards.
    On that boards Ive tried both, Sonic Imagery and Sparkos Op Amps and with that boards Ive prefered the Sparkos because for me, in my system, they had more body, but the same detail and soundstage. The Si where Kind of lean and dry.
    I havent tried the Sonic Imagery on the Rev D boards, but the Sparkos sound great for me on them: dynamic, detailed, 3D, toneful, with body and bass, just incredible.

    Thanks. As the monkey said when he caught his tail in the revolving door, “It won’t be long, now.” My Sparkos arrive tomorrow.

    I just find it intriguing that boggit hasn't inquired. I know if it were my business and someone brought up a customer service related issue I sure as heck would want to know what the issue is especially since the item in question was purchased due to this very thread......boggit?

    Maybe he's aware of what you're trying to accomplish instead of you just contacting him directly without an audience. As Samoyed said he has always been quick to help when things are handled that way. When did you go from D'Agostino to Nord anyway?

    Chaps, I will be using a valve pre with my Nord power amp. My intention will be to leave the Nord powered, but should I turn the power amp off before turning my pre-amp on? Common sense says - YES; but your experience may be otherwise. Thx

    Ohhh, I contacted him via email. I bought both a mono and a stereo amp for F,C,R in my ht system. D’agastino is in different system with a different class of service to go along. Without going into too much more detail at this point I have a broken stereo amp version that doesn’t work any more and no offer by the manufacturer to repair. I can buy the parts and have them shippped to me for about $400.00 US but I need to figure the rest out on my own. Never have I felt so disregarded as a participant in this hobby. Good thing I can take the financial hit without too much issue but nevertheless it pisses me off how irresponsible people can be

    I bought a 12 volt trigger and if your preamp has one, use it. Otherwise, buy the Emotiva external version and use that-I would always power up the Nord last. Mine makes a light pop on power up.
