In real world use (Music/Movies) not likely. The efficiency of these amps are incredible. Maybe if you ran full spectrum pink noise out of every channel at Max Volume for an extended duration. But that would damage your hearing first and would be an actual determined effort to destroy your Amps/Speakers and Marriage. Never say never. I have two 6 channel 502 amps (12 channels total) plugged into the same 15 amp outlet that also powers Dual 18” JTR 2400 Watt Subs Amp, a 85” Sony Tv, a Denon AVR 8500h, and a bunch of Other low power devices, hue lights, cable modem/router, ATV, Shield, 3 Aircomm cooling fan vents, Harmony Hub, Hue Sync Hub, Cable Box/DVR, and a few other things that I am forgetting about. After several years and many hours of multichannel music and loud as hell Movies. Not Once have I ever tripped a breaker or even noticed light flicker. I long ago expected to have to run a new 20 amp circuit to run all this kit. So in my use case experiment. I concluded that double power inputs are overkill on Buckeyes Amp build designs and are there as a step above and beyond in the extreme cases where this might be needed.This really needs two plugs??? I didn’t notice that on the first review. Only other amp I’ve seen with two plugs is the HCA-3500 and that’s a huge massive amp with two large toroids
Purifi based vs Hypex based vs Icepower based Apollon amp, which one do you prefer?I've had one of these for years (Another 8 channel 502MP design):
Hypex Multi Channel Apollon Audio NCMP8350 Amplifier with 4x Hypex NCore delivering power for the most demanding studio, PA or audiophile speakers.apollonaudio.com
The older version I have is 2 plug input like the Buckeye, if you plug only one in only half the amps work. The new design in the link is one plug, maybe Apollon optimised for 230V but I'd be interested to know @Apollon Audio
Fair enough even if you can already see it in the screen,reports the loopback and the measurement options.No, I want to know about the system that is being measured in detail.
hmmmm.... AC gets converted into DC inside the amps, each AC on its own phase gets converted into same DC, once you have DC, there's no phase issue.... If the rectifier implementation is done correctly. Not seeing how it would impact stereo image etc.Sound, especially its spatial aspects, will be ruined ofc.
I claim nothing,everything is there to see.You do know that AC power delivered to most homes in the US comes as two 120VAC lines that are 180 degrees out of phase. Right? So you are claiming that one of these has better "sonic performance" than the other? That is what the post was asking about and why it is "a 50-50 proposition" because there are two different out-of-phase feeds to choose from.
No, there is really NOTHING there to see because the system under test is not described in enough detail to have a full understand of what was being tested. Your little diagram of :I claim nothing,everything is there to see.
Just a hint,neutral in europe (where I am) is usually tied to ground in the electrical board (not in my case,the spike at 50Hz would be even worst).
And another,follow the fuse line to see where it gets you.
Ok,to better understand it,the one measurement is with the plug of the x over properly put in the inlet (line to line-neutral to neutral - ground to ground) and the next one is with the plug reversed (you can do that in some countries in europe).No, there is really NOTHING there to see because the system under test is not described in enough detail to have a full understand of what was being tested. Your little diagram of :
PC>E-MU DAC>electronic analog xover>E-MU ADC>PC
says absolutely ZERO about what you are making claims about: the power supply connection. Without details about that, how can we make sense of your claim or the plots you provided?
OK, that is what I thought but I needed to confirm.Ok,to better understand it,the one measurement is with the plug of the x over properly put in the inlet (line to line-neutral to neutral - ground to ground) and the next one is with the plug reversed (you can do that in some countries in europe).
Everything else is identical,you can tell by the measurement if you know how to read them.
