Super happy with that amp. Very nice solid build, flawless support, I can wholeheartedly recommend IoM to anybody looking for a nCore amp, especially compact ones. Worthy of note that IoM is fully supported by Hypex. Got one of these NC252MP amps for general HiFi usage, I like it so much that I will get a second one for music making duties, to power my monitoring speakers. At this price it is an impossibly good bargain.
I just received the Ncore Pro Amp and connected it with IFI Pro IDSD immediately. I am using Raspberry Pi3 B+ as streamer connected with SSD. When I played first song, I am very surprised what I have heard, the background is very black, the huge sound stage, the low THD provided a sound of high fidelity. The guitar, violin and vocal are vivacious. The bass is deep and like a rock. I can’t say this amp is sweet or warm, but it just made me to feel what is refreshing. Before this amp, I used Nuprime ST-10 that is also a class D amp. It is no doubt it has been beaten by IOM Ncore Pro Amp. Furthermore the price is just 1/2 of ST-10.
I have replaced my Denon integrated amplifier (16.5 kg) and CD player with a decent D/A Converter that doubles as a pre-amplifier and an IOM NCore Pro power amp (2 x 250W, balanced XLR inputs). Ordering was smooth, fast, simple and personal and the amp arrived in a very well packed box. The unit is small, looks nice and is screwed together very well from high quality aluminium pieces. As described in many other reviews of the Hypex modules, I am impressed by the combination of detail in the middle and high frequencies and the control in the low frequencies. It’s like putting on my glasses when I get up in the morning: I hear the same familiar music but with much more resolution. Low frequency is also very good: gone is the booming bass that I had always attributed to the placement of my speakers. With the increased resolution, the sound stage has also improved.
IOM Cromecaster Ik was meteen al enthousiast vanwege het mooie robuuste design en met name 1 knop er op , klein en super cool. Met zo’n design had ik er wel vertrouwen in dat het met het geluid ook wel goed zat. Dit overtrof echter mijn verwachtingen ruimschoots, super! Ik was al redelijk verwend met mijn vorige Denon versterker maar dit klink nog helderder, en dieper uit mijn passieve 3 weg Davis speakers. De bediening met Cromecast is supereenvoudig, aansluiting was zo gepiept. Top product!!
2 stuks aangeschaft. Zien er erg mooi uit, robuuste aluminium behuizing van ruim 2,5kg. Qua sound klinkt het erg goed, open, breed stereobeeld en transparant. Dit terwijl ze nog moeten inspelen dus dat belooft veel goeds voor later. Het bestelproces verliep prima, ik werd goed op de hoogte gehouden over de voortgang van de bestelling.
I’ve ordered 2 IOM NCore Mono Amplifiers . The ordering process went very smoothly and communication about the delivery was very good. The combination of these amplifiers and my electrostatic speakers is suberb. All kinds of music are no problem for this amplifier which produces a clean sound with a wide sound image. The appearance and the finish is very nice. I’m very satisfied with new my amplifiers.
I’ve had 2 amplifiers for just over a week now. Sound is superb – more than enough power, bass very well controlled, midrange and treble beautifully detailed. Not only do they sound good they also look good – very clean design with a simple, minimalist logo. They are customised versions of the Chromecast amplifier with XLR inputs and one input driving both amplifier channels. Very impressed with the quality, value for money and the responsiveness of IOM to my specific requirements. Highly recommended!
Setting up was super easy. And what a sound! I heard a lot about Hypex class D amplifiers but I had never actually heard them yet. What they say is absolutely true: more than enough power, the purest sound you can imagine, no background noise, and the amp stays very cool. As an iPhone user, I was a bit hesitant to go for a Google Chromecast solution, but more and more iOS music apps are supporting the Chromecast (Spotify, Tidal, Soundcloud). I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for high-end sound at very reasonable costs, with no hassle!
