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

    I will write something more when my Nord get 500 hours. For the moment have about 360 hours. Sound is changing a lot all the time. from about 280 hours upper range start to open and now that this rang keep line with rest of range. Changes are also moving towards increasing smoothness and fluidity whati is very possitive.
    nevertheless it is not sweetened with a barrel of honey, decorated or colored. Rather neutral / natural colors, without embellishment or additional romanticism. But with proper weight and insane precision and resolution, and still preserved musicality. For now, I am positive about what I hear, but I will be able to express my final opinion on how the Nord will warm up (after about 500 hours) and I will get a little more familiar with it.
    For today, the truth is that I get to know my CDs again and get used to them because I hear a lot of new things on each of them that I haven't heard there before. It is actually a new presentation that I have to get used to, stop getting excited by this new information and while listening to relax and see how I perceive this new perspective. For now, I can say that pop, rock, electronic and classical music undoubtedly gain a lot on Nord in relation to my current amplifier.

    I agree with Samoyed e-mail or better yet call Colin and talk to him he has been with this forum for years and as you can see from the size of this thread many of us have been customers. I suspect all three have a similar sonic signature as Bruno developed all of them. The Purifi modules are just a five year newer development taking advantage of technology advancements in the interim.
