    The web page set off my BS detector immediately.
    If you have an open mind and open ears, prepare to be exhilarated.
    What you will hear.
    Your first and immediate impression will be a striking sense of purity and effortlessness.
    You will instantly hear the absence of subtle distortions that are inherent in conventional amplifiers.
    These distortions have been part of everyone’s listening experience for so long that we often fail to recognize them for what they are, or where they are coming from. Their presence is why so many people find it necessary to “tune” their system through the careful selection of components that lessen the subtle irritations.
    In everyday life, low-level background noise is often noticed only when it stops, followed by a sense of relief. You will feel a similar and immediate sense of relief with Nuforce amps.
    Sounds will simply be in the room, free from any mechanical emphasis. You will relax into the music, physically and emotionally. The leading edges of notes will have clarity and definition, with a startling absence of grit or artificial brightness. The soundstage will be wide, deep and open, without the “crowding” that typically happens when music becomes complex. You will not only hear precisely where the performers are on the soundstage. You will also hear and sense the spaces around them.
    The midrange will be pristine and intensely present, equal to the best tube amplifiers, but with bass control they cannot equal. The size of the musical event will be realistic, and the rhythm and drive will be propulsive.
    But above all, you will respond to a sense of naturalness and ease that allows you to feel the music, not simply hear it.
    It’s as if a fine haze has been removed between you and the performance. As if your music has been set free.
    Because it has.

    BS Indeed-- Please! spare me!!

    I have never before seen such an elaborate collection of "audiophile" cliches in one writing.

    Just stop it! Stop it, already!

    Total bullshit. Amen.

    Hello
    I have to go with Don on the Nuforce amps.
    After spending a couple of minutes on their website and looking
    at the pictures of the insides of their amps it look like they are
    using generic OEM'ed power supplies and amp moduals designed and
    built who knows where that are just placed into a pretty aluminum
    box!
    If I had been them I would have left the covers on for the pictures.

    Just my thoughts

    Ok


    I do not know those amps but most important is how they sound and not what the web shows , I believe it is also interesting to see what's going on with new technology as Icepower or Nuforce .
    At the end what we want is our Jbl system sounds the best we can .

    Have you seen this page :

    This one too :

    http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue22/nuforce9.htm



    Push these little guys to full power and you'll not hear a trace of hardness or brittleness, and not so much as a hint of compression or strain. My $16,000 Pass X 600s nearly drove me out of the room at high levels with the Avalons. The 9s intrigue while they pull you into the performance. They perform like $6000+ solid-state amps, and better than most of them. If you like your music powerful, neutral, slippery smooth, and super detailed, the 9s are your ticket. If you're looking for sweetness and love, warmth and liquidity, they're not for you

    I looks to me as though they may have had a shill on the HT forum plugging their amps. I've read all of that, I still don't believe that the switching frequency of the amp power supply should have audible effects on the sound of the amp. But I'm always skeptical of tweako nonsense. Either the power supply is well designed and of adequate capacity for the needs of the amp, or it's not. If you have a situation where the size and weight of the amp is important, they do have a good story there.
