If I was to have a raffle for an amp how many people would be interested in getting tickets? All proceeds would go to a charity - I am trying to figure out if I have enough followers now who are interested to make it beneficial and if so the budget to stick to. Please feel free to share this message.

I have noticed a lot of clicks on shop now - Keep in mind that that my Ebay shop has been taken down and I may not be putting it back up again. We are currently having a special on all our NC500 buffers so now is the time to place your order if you would like to kick the performance up to the next level and own the finest class D amp available in the world. We are also having a special on the NC1200s as well. DM only if you are interested in any of our current line or custom orders.

Our premium wire line is completed and ready to ship and I am very proud of these wires. The components used are second to none and the aesthetic are SLICK. Pictured is our XLR wiring. They are made by hand using Cardas gold XLR terminations, stranded silver wiring, connected with Cardas Silver solder - everything was picked to assure the best quality and neutral sound with no artificial coloration. The wires are multi strand silver in cotton and encased in your choice of cover. Pictures here is my personal favorite, the Diamondback. We also have power cables, speaker wiring, RCAs, etc all using Furutech or Cardas components. Components are picked by what we feel is the best available and are not exclusively married to one supplier. Cables can be from Duelund, Neotech, and a few other well known brands as well as some custom made for the best performance and fit. DM for orders, questions and requests for reviews. Our complete line of wires, speakers, subs and electronics will be finalized in the very near future - keep an eye out for our review in the Absolute Sound!

For the “wire guys” out there - attached is XLO’s XLR retailing for $1,399 USD and marked down to $559 at Parts Connexion. To the right is our factory XLR wires - they are built using Cardas terminations, Cardas silver solder, stranded silver in cotton with a poly jacket and sleeved in your choice of sleeve. I like this one personally and call it the Copperhead. The first pair (other then my own) will be going to a very loyal client who has purchased 5 amps in the last year as a free gift (in addition to a bunch of other goodies) with purchase for his latest NC500 amp! So SURPRISE and thank you so much for your continued support!

Anyway while I think 1,400 is absurd for XLRs, but there is a market for it and the value is dictated by the buyer. That being said, our first generation is using better material, parts, and handmade and tested prior to shipping. The parts used are all expensive and it does take time to make them correctly. That being said, what would be very fair price for those that enjoy fancy cabling?

The next set will be our “No Holds Barred” design and the wire will be perled Duelund silver wiring - possibly their flat series or even going to a jeweler myself for a mix of silver and gold wiring to try out!

If your amplifier has ever suffered from a noisey buzzing power transformer that seems to come and go depending on the time of day.Your sound system is most likely suffering from DC on the AC mains.DC on the mains is generated from a lot of modern appliances like air conditioners, laser printers, switchmode power supplies etc.its causes clipping of the AC mains waveform and this generates direct current to be formed which is piggy backed on the AC mains.The result is it saturates power transformers primary winding creating a very loud acoustic buzz which can more often than not be heard across your listening room.It also robs the power transformer of power and dynamics, which in turn rob the amplifier of sound quality.The Holton DC blocker is a very high power AC mains conditioner which not only removes the DC from the mains but also filters high frequency noise from the mains as well.The Holton DC blocker is capable of power devices as high as 2400 watts from your standard Australian GPO without any drop off in power delivery.The DC blocker also comes with high quality AC volt and AC current meters so you can see exactly what is happening with what you are powering.The result of using the Holton DC Blocker is restored dynamics and resolution in your sound system and no noisey power transformers.The Holton DC Blocker One is designed to power your entire sound system not just your power amplifier. The best place to wire in the Holton DC Blocker One is between your household AC Mains GPO and your multi outlet power board.The Holton DC Blocker One can be supplied with UK BS1363 13 Amp 230VAC Mains Outlet or USA 2143 15 Amp 125VAC AC Mains Outlet upon request. Here some Testimonies from some of my Holton DC Blocker One customer's Marco C From Melbourne, Victoria tells his story."The dc blocker received and it works great. Now the isolation transformer does not hum or buzz anymore. it is dead silent. Thank you again for such a great product and your service."BestMarco, Melbourne, VIC Tom From Victoria, Australia initially bought the DC Blocker One as a try out in the hope to stop a very acoustically noisey power transformer in his Parasound Integrated amplifier. Well it turns out the Parasound has an actual fault and needed to be sent of for repair. Here is Tom's testimony in his own words."Well. I decided to put aside my initial disappointment concerning hum, took the Blocker back out from the shipping box and auditioned it as the independent component it is. I am happy to report back that I am indeed hearing increased dynamics and resolution - significant in fact. I selected a small section of a favourite Bill Evans track and compared my amp with and without the blocker quite a few times back and forth. It clearly is allowing for better sound from my system, incredibly so in fact. Better bass extension and greater separation between the individual instruments. Things sound less mashed together if that makes sense? I will be keeping it! Thank you. Tom, Victoria Australia" Graeme N from Victoria tells his story!"Frankly, I'm gobsmacked what a difference this unit has made to the clarity of my system. I'm sitting listening to very familiar material & I just keep shaking my head. Sure, I've played with a series of power treatments so far, and each have made some improvement, but nothing like this bit of kit. All of a sudden there is so much more 'air' to the sound & the soundstage is open, clear & precise. This is a real cracker !

A lot of things are changing really fast and I will be making a few announcements in the near future. A few products are getting dropped, a few added and super excited. The first big change is that all our amps will be enjoying a major aesthetic upgrade which unfortunately will increase the pricing until volumes pick up enough to offset the difference. The new cases are gorgeous, heavy duty, and unfortunately expensive to manufacture - they will however look as incredible as they sound.

That being said, I have one last case available from the old batch and I am looking to blow it out to start gearing up with all the new products.

With our standard buffer (my favorite IC opamps and regulators - can be upgraded to a Platinum by us or you at any time by changing the opamps and regulators), Propeller Tellurium binding posts, and gold XLRs, the cost will be $1,300 with free shipping in the US. For Furutech posts and Cardas gold XLRs, the price will be $1,500 (less then the retail cost of the parts). If the Furutech/Cardas model is purchased in the next 48 hours, you will get 2 free Sparkos SS3602 discrete opamps which retails for $160.00. Or Platinum buffer uses 2 Sparkos Pro SS2590s and 2 discrete regulators per board which adds another $220 per buffer or $440 for the set.

The cost of these amps will be going up and buffers will be standardized going forward to allow us to make and ship product faster. First person to DM me will get this amp and for $1,500 with the Cardas/Furutech parts and 2 extra Sparkos discrete opamps make this a fantastic deal that will not happen again. This amp will ship in less then 2 weeks from when payment is received. Hoping this goes to a great home!

Dialing the last adjustments on the MTM kits crossover. Data plots and materials will be posted shortly. These sound incredibly sweet and are available in a bass reflex bookshelf, sealed MTM and 3 way tower for the ultimate in bass response. Recorded on an IPhone 6 - hope you enjoy the tone as much as I do. :-).

Just wanted to post a pic of my all time favorite piece of equipment - the Technic 1200. This particular pair of MK5s is the rarest made (and sequential order) and I won in a DJ contest back in the day. This set will not be for sale despite some very generous offers - just too much sentimental value to part with them. We are partnering with Wreck It Records to offer some custom 1200s with a ton of cosmetic and fidelity upgrades with the first pair dropping in the next 4-6 months. If you would like them, I recommend placing your order ASAP so that you can choose options that are important to you. The first pair of customs will be built off MK2s have built in dicers, custom lighting, double tap reverse, all custom upgraded internal wiring, upgraded internals (caps) and feature either the Gucci logo or Louis Vuitton logo on the faceplate. Hardware will be powder coated to match in your choice if dark grey or back. External wiring will also be upgraded to allow the use of high end RCA cables (which will come with the order) rather then using the standard RCA and built in ground that comes with the standard 1200. This project will start in 2-3 weeks and if you would like to order this pair, you will be able to pick everything right down to the smallest detail and omit features that you will not find beneficial.

I would also like to point out that currently we are only processing orders via Facebook. I believe we took down the Fleabay store about a year ago as they have no protection for sellers and will be no longer accepting PayPal for the same reason. We were beat for over $6,000 in stock by an international buyer before figuring out that lesson the hard way. We will have a site going up sometime soon to assist as we will have some killer speaker kits and finished products available as well in the near future. We didn’t go anywhere, just figuring out how to supply a better product and faster while maintaining our commitment to excellent pricing.

Well guess who is back! We had to take some time to re-evaluate our supplier, change up the product line, finalize the new product line and catch up on orders due to issues with the vendors who were supplying cases which made life miserable for everyone. Right now we are focusing on a few areas

1) The DIY market and will offer the lowest cost on drivers and components anywhere. I will post some picture of our car audio installations for your enjoyment to see how far some of these guys are pushing the envelope.
2) We are reducing the number of amps we manufacture and getting rid of 99.9% of the custom electronics unless of course it is an interesting product. These will focus mainly on #ICEPower and #Hypex modules with some other players mixed in for class D as well as #Holton Precision Audio for solid state. We feel that these are the finest amps in each category and can offer superior service and pricing by not being a 1 stop shop anymore.
3) Hypex buffer upgrades, you will see some comparisons with more to come comparing our buffers to the usually suspects and the result speak for themselves - we really do make the finest #NC500 available on the planet.

I apologize for not taking orders for the last year but we really had to catch up with orders and deal with logistic issues. We also have some new cases out that will add to the aesthetics of our products as well. So as promised here are some custom car install pics from some of our clients.

Drying out the 64-10 sealed MTM before flush trimming the ends and hitting the sides with a quarter round. The 64-10 series has been changed and all 3 models will be 2 way builds. The sealed MTMs will have an F3 of 80hz while the bookshelf and tower will have a 28hz F3. The tower will be some kind of transmission line and use 2 of our Satori drivers as well as the Raal ribbon for the high.

Each model will have 2 sets of #Furutech binding posts so that bi amping is easy and different amps can be used for the woofer and tweeters; a jumper is used if you would like to use a single amp. They will also all have a switch on the rear to bypass the crossover circuitry if you would like to add our DSP amps and take the performance to another level.

They are also available with both the amps and DSP built in for those who what an active and powered system.

Moving forward our premium models will ship only with #Cardas Audio XLRs. The fit and finish is second to none and I prefer the spring/ball detent as opposed to the standard latch on other models. Their solder cup is awesome, allowing a perfect connection to our #Neotech hookup wires. Sonically, I would put them head to head with an other XLR. Keeping of our brand promise of affordable #UltraFi, even if you do not believe hookups and interconnects make a difference in sound, the quality of these components and aesthetics can't be disputed - this is a minor cost increase incurred to provide a hands-down superior product.

08/05/2018

Should have all the wires done this week - I gotta say they exceeded my expectations. The final designs and models of the amps will be released shortly and I have some good and bad news. The bad news is that we will no longer be doing custom work - it takes up just way too much time and slows down production of other products, orders and development. Also we will be increasing the costs of our products to cover the costs of premium components as well as newer cases - all models will be standard with Furutech and Cardas components and top notch internal wiring as opposed to being optional upgrades. So if you have been on the fence and want to order something custom, we will only be taking custom orders for 1 more week. The good news is that with a finalized product list and standardized components we will be able to ship all orders within 2 weeks going forward and we will be holding inventory of our higher volume items so they can ship within 24-48 hours after an order.

Our full line of wire products will be launched next week. Keeping with our promise of offering the finest components at the best possible price we are using a mix Cardas and Furutech parts connected by Cardas silver solder. Our XLR is a shielded quad conductor cryo treated OFC cable terminated with Cardas components - a red or black O-ring fits in the gap pictured for a clean and classy look. The finishing shown is the "rattlesnake" option; we have around 10 finishes in stock and can offer 100s for larger orders and full system replacement/upgrade sets.

Do you do you have any of the unpopulated input buffer boards for the nc500 so I can play around with it. Thanks
so, when/where is bellissimo audio selling the ice as-based amps? thanks!
Bought the NC502MP based amp, a significant sound quality upgrade from my old mosfet class AB 60 watt. The significant difference are: more controlled bass region and great resolution which make great staging and detail. Bass is tighter, this amp is very good with the damping factor, i can hear the clearer bass with great extension also. Before the bass sounds smear, some people will assume this as deeper bass, but its not. You'll easily understand this within the experiences of hearing many systems. Tighter bass will affect your mid quality, make them to have more definitive and details. There you'll get more precise staging, details, and ambience. In my experience what make difference between high end system and entry level system are be found within these areas, not to forget dynamics and harmonic distortion also, which are relating each other. Though these ampliers are not apple to apple wattage comparable to, but my current speaker is relatively easy to handle 2 way system of 1" tweeter and 6" midwoofer, you can take a look on the impedance and electric phase graphic below. So its obvious there are quality differences between them. Nice amplifier!!
Looking good!!!
