Hypex Ncore NC400 / SMPS600 Custom Dual Mono Amp Build [Expired]


no longer for sale

This is one of the finest sounding amps I’ve had in my system at any price. I’m only offering this for sale as I’ve moved to an Audio Research Reference tube amp at 4x the cost.  You probably know if you are reading this that Hypex only makes the parts used in this amp available in small quantities for DIY builders. I'm rating this amp a 6/10 as it has a couple of very minor marks on the face if you look closely. 

Here are the details:  
  • Full dual mono construction: each NC400 has a dedicated SMPS600 power supply 
  • Utilizes the optional Hypex soft start circuit
  • Built in a custom case from Italy which uses precision cut holes for the connectors and switch 
Only the highest quality parts were used: 
  • Eichmann “Speaker Pod” binding posts Silver plated Neutrik XLR balanced analog inputs (no singled ended inputs, but they could be added without too much difficulty) 
  • Furutech IEC input Shielded (& grounded) internal power wires (Neotech and Belden) 
  • Pure copper speaker wire (Monster M series) 
  • European power switch with blue internal LED 
  •  Amp modules mounted with high quality thermal tape for optimal heat transfer (not that these really get hot) 
  • Wonder solder used on IEC and speaker binding posts
Specs as per the NC400 Data Sheet:  
  • 200w @ 8ohms 1% THD 400w @ 4ohms 1% THD 580w @ 2ohms 1% THD THD+N = 0.007 
  • SNR = 124db 
  • Current Limit = 24A 
  • Unprecedented low distortion over frequency and power range 
  • Unprecedented low output impedance 
  • Very low noise Neutral and transparent reproduction: “Neither dirt nor fairy dust” 
  • Fully discrete signal path – no IC’s Differential audio input
The price is in US dollars. I'm happy to accept Canadian dollars with the current exchange rate. Shipping is a flat rate of $40 anywhere in North America via Canada Post Expedited Service. Note I only ship to confirmed PayPal addresses, no exceptions.
