    i have always been intrigued by diy stuff. i wish i was able to build stuff ... i would totally spend the money to try and see how it compares to what you can buy from manufactures. there are benefits to both sides and i would be interested to hear a diy amp.

    There are a lot of extremely clever people who contribute to the DIY Audio forum and lots of outstanding projects to choose from. You can make an amp as good as any commercial design for a fraction of the price. That is not hyperbole. Hell, putting the Ncores together is so straightforward it barely qualifies as DIY.

    The DIY is audio is a great hobby. I have followed many threads in diyaudio.com and they have people with great expertise, such as John Curl.

    However we must remember that DIY carries the highest existing bias factor and most products are only scrutinized by their creators in their particular and unique systems. But yes, if I had a double audiophile life the second one would follow the DIY route.

    Not sure about the Neurochrome amps but the Crowns are probably better than Hypex NC400 and have built-in DSP. Recent Crown amps are very good, I have Crown XLS and Hypex NC500 amps w/OEM input. Neither are great for higher frequencies but both are excellent for bass, they are very close in performance to one another. However, I think with a better input section the NC500's higher frequencies could be much better which would make it a very good amp. If NC400 isn't as good as NC500, then the Crowns are probably better.

    Hi there. I have been contemplating trying the Jbl 4367 and was even planning a visit to Dallasjustice (Michael) to hear them in action which never materialized due to my busy schedule. I pair of M2s with the high power Crown IT-12000HD's showed up on Audiogon for a fair price, and I would consider scooping them up unheard and try them in my room. I am quite attached to my PS audio monos poweramps, and I would hate to have to part with them to drive the M2s with the Crowns (hence my preference for the JBL 4367), and I also don't like the idea of doing a A/D - D/A conversion in the amp. Any thoughts? I am currently using the Evolution Acoustics MM3. Like them a lot, but I want to downsize because of future move to smaller premises - I won't be able to take the giant EAs with me.

    The crown amps have fans unfortunately so keep that in mind as you think about using them with M2.

    Don't buy the M2. You obviously want the 4367. I would wait. You have great speakers to hold you over.

    IME, it's a non-issue... the fans are speed controlled and never noticeable. Although, I suppose if you crank them hard then go down to low SPLs the fans might be on higher speeds for a bit. I've never noticed any fan noise though.

    I have and absolutely LOVE my 4367's. You will actually need 4 channels of amplification for the M2's. I have used many amps and also use the BHK 300 monos, among others, on the 4367's and they are wonderful. The PS Audio amps are sleepers. Amazing for the money. The 4367's are so much easier to integrate in your room/home. As much as I love my Strads, the JBL's are receiving the majority of play time.
