very big soundstage and defined 3D sound

The monoblock amplifier is handbuilt with highest precision using only highest quality components. To connect your speakers we use premium WBT 0703 CU or WBT 0703 AG (optional) 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 gold plated XLR sockets. The monoblock amplifier has a soft start function and it is turned on with an illuminated switch on the front panel. The monoblock amplifier also has a standby mode, to turn it off completly a high quality mains switch on the backpanel is used.

The monoblock amplifier contains a Hypex NC2K module coupled with an Apollon Audio custom input buffer board. The NC2K SLM monoblock amplifier is powered with a SMPS Hypex power supply boasting 3000Watts of power. The standby control module is powered with a low-voltage power supply unit.

Sparkos Labs SS78 & SS79 Discrete Voltage Regulators

Providing power to the Op Amps, the Sparkos Labs SS78 and SS79 Discrete Voltage Regulators play a key role for ultra low noise and fast transient responses on our custom input buffer boards for the Hypex NC2K based amplifier.They are responsible for improved low level listening ability, far superior 3D soundstage and high frequency details. The difference is mostly noticable at higher volumes, where the clarity remains on higher levels and with ample details and dynamics even at low listening levels.

The Sparkos Labs SS78 and SS79 Discrete Voltage regulators bring many advantages compared with standard monolithic designs where large capacitors for heavy filtering on the internal voltage can not be implemented. The fully discrete erorr amplifier on the device gives the ability for amazingly high input rejection and unique compensation techniques that are not possible to implement with regular monolithic IC error amplifiers.

What our clients say about the NC800SLM

We are humble and do not like to brag, so below you can find just a few selected testimonials from our happy clients that own our amplifier built around the Hypex NC500 amplifier modules.

“I had a pleasant surprise this evening. I had the visit of Johnny Cash and June Carter at my place and they performed an outstanding live performance. My all body was shaking and thrilled by the flow or their amazing voices and the rhythm of Johnny’s guitar.

This amazing experience was possible thanks to my customized NC800SL I just received this morning. It feels like a quality product. It looks and sounds great. And it should further improve after few more days of listening.
The Apollon Team did a great job. The custom 8 connectors are perfect to bi-wire my B&W CM10. I was looking for the best value for money amplifier based on the Hypex NCore.

I am glad I found Apollon Audio.
I have to go. More guests are coming. The Folsom prison is inviting itself to my place. “

Nicolas Payen (Singapore)

“I’ve had the amp for about a week and a half now and I’m enjoying it quite a bit.  It’s opening up nicely and the depth and detail are excellent.  I’ve had to adjust my subs (dual Rythmik F15s) down a bit because, I believe, my Tylers are now being driven more to their potential. Excited to hear if things open up even more.

Very happy so far with my purchase.  Thanks again!”

“I received the amplifiers, I thank you again for the quality of manufacture. I will do a very good publicity for Apollon Audio.”
