Elegant • Musical • Detailed

Hypex NC500 BASED stereo AMPLIFIER

Elegant AND with a simply pure sound

If you are looking for an amplifier with pure detailed sound in a small, compact and light weight form factor that looks like a piece of prestige piece of furniture then the Apollon Hypex Mini amplifier may be the right choice for your. 

The Apollon Audio NC500 MINI Stereo Amplifier is built around the amazing Hypex NC500 amplifier module in a very compact and light weight design with amazing clarity and brutaly honest linear sound. 


The Apollon Audio NC500 MINI Stereo Amplifier is exceptionally fast, uncommonly clean, and musical with a lot of detail. It comes standard with 4 selectable gain settings, switchable input between Neutrik XLR balanced / Gold plated single ended inputs, 12V trigger with passthrough and Furutech FI-06 gold plated mains input.

Exceptional chassis design

The chassis is custom machined from solid aluminium with 10mm thick walls and 5mm thick lid and bottom. For improved aesthetics we have designed the chassis in such a way that there are no screws visible when you look at the amplifier as they are only on the bottom plate. For this amazing amplifier we borrowed the fancy looks from our flagship premium PNC1200 amplifier.


The aluminium feet provide isolation and absorption from the ground plane.


The chassis is executed in a very tasteful piano black color (also available in white). It is spray painted rather than anodised since paint is a softer, more absorbent material.


A very special feature is the backlit glass plate with the engraved Apollon mark.

Carefully Crafted

Layout and design

The NC500 mini amplifier is hand-built with highest precision using only highest quality components. To connect your speakers we use top of the line WBT 0703 CU Binding Posts that are internally connected to the amplifier with Neotech UP-OCC 12AWG Solid Copper Speaker Output Wire. The input connectors are Neutrik high quality silver plated XLR sockets and Gold Plated RCA connectors with selector switch. The amplifier has a soft start function and it is turned on with a hidden push button switch on the bottom lid or with the trigger function.

The stereo amplifier contains two Hypex NC500 modules coupled with our Apollon Audio custom input buffer boards with the OPA1612 Op Amps onboard. The NC500 mini stereo amplifier is powered by one  SMPS Hypex power supplies boasting 1200 Watts of power. The standby control module is powered with a low-voltage power supply unit.

Providing low ripple and ultra low noise power to the Op Amps is possible with our LDO LT3045/LT3094 Voltage Regulators that play a key role for ultra low noise and fast transient responses on our custom input buffer boards for the Hypex NC500 modules. They are responsible for improved low level listening ability, far superior 3D soundstage and high frequency details. The difference is mostly noticeable at higher volumes, where the clarity remains on higher levels and with ample details and dynamics even at low listening levels.
