Nord is an official partner of Hypex Electronics B.V., LEARN MORE ON HYPEX SITE and we have collaborated with them for over 7 years. All our Hypex Amplifiers utilize NCore technology, the latest and most advanced modules from Hypex. We design, build, and sell a wide range of Hypex-based NCore amplifiers directly, including stereo and multichannel amplifiers.

We integrate from the entry-level NCore modules NC52MP, NC122MP, NC252MP, NC502MP. These modules are all-in-one units, equipped with onboard power supplies and input buffers.

Moving up to mid-to-high-end offerings, we have the Hypex NC500 and the latest NCx500, which have delivered significant improvements in sonic performance that were previously thought impossible from a new module. Both the NC500 and the NCx500 feature separate power supplies using the Hypex SMPS1200A700. The new NCx500 differs from the NC500 in that it has an onboard buffer, which we use in our standard amplifier. For ultimate performance, we combine it with our Nord Buffer, utilizing discrete Voltage Regulators and Op Amps. This approach offers superior performance and the flexibility to easily upgrade each section of the amplifier.

Finally, the NC1200 module also uses a separate Power Supply. Although our base NC1200 amps use the onboard buffer, superior audiophile performance is achieved when specifying our Nord Buffer.

Hypex was founded in 1996 by Jan-Peter van Amerongen (1964 – 2021). The company started as a supplier of plate amplifiers for live sound loudspeakers. The products attracted the attention of HiFi loudspeaker manufacturers, resulting first in a range of active subwoofer amplifiers, followed shortly afterwards by multi-channel units with active crossover filters for the studio market.

In 2003, a full migration to Class-D was started. The newly invented ‘Universal Class-D’ technology was selected for this, later followed by the leading NCORE® technology. The decision was made not only to use UcD™ and NCORE® in end-user products, but also to market these as general amplifier modules. The quality of the UcD™ and NCORE® modules quickly became recognized as the new industry standard in both measured and subjective performance.

In 2005, Hypex decided to become a technology resource instead of a technology user. Hypex now serves many major audiophiles, HiFi and Pro Audio brands, incorporating the world-class NCORE® technology into their final products.

In 2013 Hypex built its own production facility in Malaysia, named Seetek EMS SDN BHD. This factory only manufactures Hypex products. One of Hypex’s core values is to deliver high-quality products at all times. That is why Hypex requires strict control during the production, assembly, and quality assurance process. With Seetek we can maintain our core values.

Same support, different name: In 2016, in line with its strategy to manufacture amplifiers for both the OEM and DIY markets, Hypex assessed its business model to distinguish between these markets. Hypex Electronics continues to produce OEM Class-D modules. To serve the DIY community we set up a new department, named This department takes care of the DIY market and provides comprehensive customer support and a direct and personal approach to the DIY audio market. The company in the background that makes everything possible is Hypex Electronics, but all sales and support is facilitated through

Hypex Electronics kicked off the year 2021 by celebrating its 25th anniversary. In the second half of the year, however, founder Jan-Peter van Amerongen lost an unwinnable battle and passed away in November. We will remember Jan-Peter as an enthusiastic and kind entrepreneur and we will miss him in our personal lives and within our company. Jan-Peter appointed the former R&D Manager Jan-Willem Winters as CEO of Hypex Electronics B.V.
