Power amplifier NCORE 2x75W 8Ω Black

Audiophonics PAS-125NC Amplificateur de puissance

An amplifier with solid performance

The AudiophonicsPA-S125NC incorporates a Hypex Ncore NC122MP power amplifier module.

This is a solid base to build a powerful stereo HiFi system, capable of delivering 2x75W under 8Ω.
On a single double-sided PCB it is composed of a low power supply for standby, a high-performance switching power supply but above all an extremely efficient Class D amplifier circuit.

The amplifier used on this NC122MP module offers a high efficiency of 92% and allows it to be used for very different uses, whether for studio use or to be integrated into a high fidelity audio system.

The distinctive characteristics of this amplifier are its linear frequency response whatever the load impedance and consequently its accurate restitution, its very low distortion but also its very low EMI radiation rate
The control of the amplifier is based on a self-oscillating loop with phase shift, taking into account the feedback only at the output of the loudspeaker, always with sound transparency in mind.

The main SMPS power supply to the amplifier is a regulated, high power, high efficiency half bridge converter with synchronous rectification on the main output rails. An ideal power supply to provide this Class D amplifier with the power it needs.
In order to be compatible with supply voltages of 100-120V and 200-240V, it is equipped with an automatic input voltage doubler.

POINTS CLÉS :

  • High efficiency
  • Load-independent flat frequency response
  • Low output impedance
  • Frequency-independant ultra low distorsion
  • Very low noise

NCore Technology

NCore amplifiers are the first Class D amplifiers to approach the performance of operational amplifiers, but also to surpass them in terms of sound reproduction quality. 
Thus, they are able to deliver a clear, rich and musical sound while remaining compact.

This NCore technology combines the stability of Hypex UcD series amplifiers with lower distortion and output impedance.

100% Aluminium Housing

We integrate this Hypex NCore NC122MP amplifier in a 100% black brushed aluminum housing.

This case offers an elegant finish, the thick walls give it a great resistance, allowing it to protect components properly.
The natural conduction of aluminium, together with a studied air flow, allows the heat produced by the module to be dissipated.
In addition, the case is screen printed on the front with the NCore logo and on the back with the nomenclature of each input/output.

Its very compact format with a small width reduces space to a minimum, thus offering high performance in a small space.

This amplifier is DC pass-through , there are no decoupling capacitors at the input.
Be sure that your source is DC free before use.
The DC protection triggers at 12V DC, which is a quite high value.

In addition to the usual connection system, there is a trigger input on the rear panel. 
This 3.5mm jack input allows the module to be switched on with a DC voltage signal from 5 to 12V to synchronize it with a preamp having this type of output.
It is also possible to chain 2 amplifiers, and to switch on both simultaneously by controlling only one, the input being transformed into an output if the power button of one of the amplifiers is pressed.

Also present on the front is a diode relaying the status of the module, lighting up if a DC voltage is detected at the output.

Great performance! What goes in comes out. In combination with a good pre-amp you have a beautiful sound.

Very nice companion for my KEF LS50
Previously I was using NAD D3020 (internally uses Hypex UcD102-based output stage) as amplification for my KEF LS50 speakers. I've purchased this amplifier as an "upgrade" to grant some more natural output to the speakers. I am quite satisfied with the result. This tiny amplifier drives full dynamics of the speaker with ease. The amplification / sound performance alone would be 5 star!

However, I am not totally happy with the chassis, and thus giving only 4 stars. It may be just my module, but I am having a tiny physical hum noise from the amplifier, near transformer side: This is tiny (i.e. tiny noise you can hear only within 50cm or so), and it is a typical 50hz mains hum. It comes out both in standby / on. Minor issue, since this is strictly on physical side, and not on signal side. So it isn't affecting output at all. However, I hate any such noise from my audio equipment. To identify further the exact source of the noise, I've opened the case (okay, warranty sticker removed and void now, but I don't care) and tried to identify which component is making this noise. But surprise surprise, the noise is gone when the top cover is off. I suspect some magnetic effect between one of transformer component with the enclosure cover. If the enclosure was slightly bigger, I guess this won't happen. Running with the cover-off can be very dangerous (NC122MP document shows front side of components with red color of dangerous voltages). So for the moment, I am with this hum. I am planning to do some DIY with a slightly bigger enclosure.

It would have been 120% perfect (?), if the module was supplied with a slightly bigger enclosure, with both XLR & RCA connection. Well, for this, 699 euro PA-S250NC is exactly that kind of stuff, but I didn't need that much gain for my current setup, so I am rather happy with this cheap-but-great amplifier.

Well, all in all, I am totally happy with it. Great job, Audiophonics, on providing one of the most economic NCore amplifier.

Sans concurrence.
Finition et construction assez sommaire. Je regrette les connecteurs très exigus à l'arrière, ainsi que le placement: Les borniers devraient être en dessous des emphases RCA et non l'inverse. A noter que l'ampli est aux normes: Terre rattachée au châssis et phase bien à gauche de l'entrée IEC.

Ceci étant dit, cet ampli, qui est le moins cher du marché en Ncore (ampli monté) est tout juste excellent pour une entrée en la matière. Les chiffres mesurés parlent d'eux même: La majorité de la puissance est disponible en dessous de 0.005% de Distorsion Harmonique + Bruit, soit la limite théoriquement audible. Dans la pratique, cela ce ressent, on peut pousser l'ampli dans ses retranchements (sensibilité d'entrée max à 1.17V - 3.6 dBu). Tout en profitant d'une puissance particulièrement propre. Signature très neutre: pour les personnes qui n'attendent pas d'un ampli qu'il apporte une quelconque coloration (ce qui n'est, en aucun cas, le rôle d'un tel matériel).

Hautement recommandé. Je l'ai tellement apprécié que je ne pouvais pas en rester là! j'ai donc commandé deux PA-M250NC Mono pour aller plus loin en puissance disponible.

Très bon ampli
J'ai été très étonné du dynamisme de ce petit appareil, qui n'a rien à envier à des appareils bien plus imposants. Analytique, aéré, et aucunement enjôleur ou clinique. En plus ça ne chauffe quasiment pas, parfait pour la multi-amplification. Pour être parfait, si vous pouviez améliorer le défaut de "ploc" à l'allumage, ou à l'extinction, sur des enceintes à très haut rendement (105 db/1/w/1m), ça s'entend quelque peu...

ASSOCIATION EXCEPTIONNELLE.
Mon dernier achat ( ampli audiophonics N CORE ) s'intègre au niveau des éléments suivants : récepteur Bluetooth CRS 8675, préampli audiophonics PGA 2310, et dac X3 Fx Audio. La restitution sonore se fait par le biais d'une paire de Q Acoustics 3020i câblée en Viard hd 12 et modulation canare. Les fichiers audios sont tous en flac hd. Que dire de la restitution: " exceptionnelle". Cet ensemble n'a rien à envier à des systèmes que l'on qualifie haut de gamme. Tout le spectre sonore est restitué avec une qualité surprenante. La tessiture des voix est riche en émotion. Les aigus files très hauts avec matière et subtilité. Tous les types de musique sont restitués avec une véracité surprenante. Le secteur grave n'est pas en reste. Il est surprenant non seulement par sa spontanéité, mais également par son exploration des infras graves. Bluffé par cette déferlante sonore, mon ami aux système haut de gamme, reconnaissait avec fairplay la qualité exceptionnelle de ces nouvelles électroniques.
