Hypex N-CORE and Swings? (BD-Design)

Dear Bert and all,

First of all Happy New Year!

During the summer of 2016, in order to keep the temperatures in the flat reasonable, I switched off my 300b amps and went to some cheapo Chinese gainclones.

Thought there was not much sophistication in the sound, it surprised me how Swings react to a bit more power than usual 6-7 watt from the tubes.

Now I would like to try them with N-COREs with some proper power. However I kind remember some restrictions related to the amp and the way it is grounded. I learned this hard since once I fried Trends T-10 amp (T-Class). I think I have never connected a D-Class amp to the Swings so I am wondering if there are any troubles to foresee and a reason why I shouldn't do this.

Thanks!

Gordan

I think it should be okay too. Problem is DC with the T-amp... not so with Hypex.

To be 100% sure then switch ON the amp without one of the outputs connected, start to play some music and connect (touching) the other output connection to the inputs of the Swings.

If music plays with bass then all is fine...
