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

    I didnít get the pm. It really just seemed like a win/win for everybody. I get a project, and you donít have to mess with it. I do strongly support Colinís business and believe we consumers should foster this kind of thing. I smile every time I get into that fire breathing AMG monster, and if I have an out of warranty failure maybe I wonít be so sanguine but thatís the way it goes. I believe Colin is being VERY fair with you since it is out of warranty. If you want us to give it a go, the offer is open.

    Did we put in a new fuse yet or are you sticking to your meter measurements and not trying the one from your working mono amp or your stash?

I think that a new class of amp should be named after this. Who would have thunk?? Samo you are a good dude trying to cover Nords butt. I would respectfully ask that Nord comp you for whatever you just bought from him and I think I can consider this just a glitch in the system and that the planets were not aligned.
    Sounds like the amplifiers should be donated to the group you described earlier. That's the win-win IMO.

    In other words, no reason to belabor the point any further.

    Saturday, last, I substituted Sparkos op amps for those from Sonic Imagery in my Nord MK II. Both produce wonderful sound stage and detail but the SI op amp seemed to aggravate my chronic tinnitus, whereas the Sparkos give up a tiny bit of detail but don’t aggravate my tinnitus. Sum: Colin’s design foreseeing op amp rolling made this amp somewhat tunable for those, like me, who need it. I wish I had the scratch for the 1200, but SWMBO would kill me.

    I wonder how much better the "standard" NC500 mk II would improve with all the fancier cables, connectors and fuse of the NC1200. In other words, I wonder how much the NC500 x NC1200 would actually compare keeping everything else the same.

    Happy to try and assist if you would like to contact me again, We have a service centre in the US, which we have used twice in 2 years but this would be a more expensive option than trying to resolve with some element of co operation, It benefits no body to have an amplifier not working?
