    I have the IOM NCore (RCA) for almost two month now, and I am very happy with it.
    Its size is very practical and it looks great (in black), and even during the warm summer this year the temperature was never an issue.

    I always had the feeling that our NAD D3045 integrated amp did not get the most out of our Dynaudio Emit 30 speakers (4 Ohm, 87dB sensitivity), and I was right: IOM gives much more detail, better bass and dynamics. A much more pleasant sound, highly recommended.

    (The NAD was used as a pre-amp in the new setup, but broke down for some reason. Now I am using a Schiit SYS as pre-amp until the NAD is back from the repair shop.)

    Greetings from Amsterdam!

    The (main) setup: Allo USBridge Signature streamer / Topping E30 DAC / Schiit SYS / IOM NCore / Dynaudio Emit 30 speakers.

    First impression, aesthetics:

    The amp is absolutely beautiful in silver. Brings a classic vibe to the wonderfully simple modern design. The thick aluminum case brings a sturdy and robust feel to the compact unit.

    First impression, listening:

    Clean, clear power with zero noise/hiss. Effortless bass, transparent. Reference quality sound.

    Thank you, Sipko, you have provided the market with a high quality audio product for an honest price!

    Translation: I have the amplifier for 1 month now. What a machine! It has replaced my Rotel RB 1070. What a dynamics and details. I use it as power amplifier directly connected to a Bluesound node N130. Personally I think a NAD M10 has quit a challenge to beat my equipment. Top amplifier!

    Versterker heb ik nu een maand. Wat een machine! Hij heeft mijn Rotel RB 1070 vervangen. Wat een dynamiek en detail. Ik gebruik hem als eindversterker direct aan een Bluesound node N130. Persoonlijk denk ik dat een NAD M10 nog een hele kluif heeft aan mijn opstelling. Top versterker!

    Hello Sipko and everyone,

    The amp is amazing!
    I’m very impressed with its clarity, power, and lack of perceptible noise or distortion.
    Also, the build is very simple and solid.
    Thank you for making products like this!

    Cheers,
    Stewart

    It keeps amazing me: so much power and control from such a small box. The soundstage is very wide and clear, and there is detail galore to enjoy. I am hearing all sorts of little sounds and colours in my music I did not hear before (and my Rotel was no slouch at that).
    The sound is spacious and very neutral, without being harsh or ‘dead’. This little amplifier is fast, clear as a bright winters day and goes deep. Its authority over the lower octaves is phenomenal.
    Don’t forget to give it some burn-in time. After a few days of use, it opens up beautifully.
    Furthermore, it is beautifully made, keeps cool and did I say it was small? Prices are very competitive, and last, but not least: Sipko is a very nice guy, and his service is great.
    Highly recommended!

    Ik heb de versterker in goede orde ontvangen en inmiddels een weekje in gebruik. Alles is volledig naar wens. De Yamaha’s NS-10’s waar ik de versterker voor gebruik staan bekend als schelle speakers tenzij je ze aan een echt goede versterker hangt. Nou, er is geen schelheid te bekennen! Bedankt voor je goede service, zeer snelle verzending en de kwaliteit van je versterker.
