Ditto. Considering both. Anybody? One is Ncore, the other is a proprietary “gain cell.” @benjosef1 and I are both interested in any direct comparisons. Thanks much....

Well having heard the Bel Canto amps and being very impressed, along with the very positive reviews of the PS M700' I would think they sound about the same. So pick the one that suits your needs better. I do realize that to keep it at about the same cost the Bel Canto amps will be purchased used (around $3K) and the PS audio amps list for $3K.
I've had the Bel 600 monos and they were nice, Haven't tried the PS audio. However, the Bel 600 weren't as good as the either a Luxman and simaudio Int I had. I sold the Luxman as well as the bells. I am using the Sim 340i and an amp at the moment. I will sell soon and look to go with a true power amp. I don't know which brand yet. I also use a PrimaLuna and that beats all of them. I do enjoy switching between them though, just a slight change in sound.
I liked the Class D for the low heat and instant on feature, however the sound wasn't quite there in my system. Focal speaks, steaming Tidal and a Mytek Brooklyn DAC.
