I have just had my Nord ND500 upgraded with the new REV board. I was reluctant because I did not think the amplifier could be materially improved and the upgrade is not cheap (£720). Wrong. Clearly heard improvements all round. Oh and Colin at Nord gives/gave the best customer care I have ever experienced from any company. Details to boring to list but the mans a real Gent.

I remember when we suggested Cyrus look at hypex modules when they started talking about class D. A few of us built hypex to replace our MonoX.
Nord are offering good amps at resonable prices . Not sure I would pay extra for CNC milled cases though.
Do I detect a little OTT in their current webpages -Fuses- copper- ClassA ?
Watch their prices as they establish themselves and sales increase ?
- and there is the brexit factor .

I know what you are saying, this model is for those that want to spend mega bucks.
But nearly everyone will be perfectly satisfied with the cheaper case version, like mine, and be perfectly happy with the NC500 Version.
That remains good value
But you have to hear to judge
