Do you want better dynamics, depth, & a bigger soundstage from this unit? (I'm sure it would work with other models too). You can get that for free with a simple mod I performed. All you have to do is separate the Left & Right bundled, balanced wires that go from the board to the rear XLR & RCA jacks. These are held together with plastic ties. Just cut those ties and dress the wires so they have some "breathing room", with the +, -, and gnd wires for each channel as far...
If you want to change from fixed to variable outputs, you have to remove the jumper that's normally in the little red rectangle in this picture:   I might be able to live with this unit's quirky remote volume control. The High/Low gain button reminds me of the -20db muting switch you'd find on old receivers. The headphone/preamp button effectively becomes a full mute control. Between the 2 I can quickly jump up & down in volume, and go full off. Then I use the "one...
Analysis Audio Omega, from Greece. Uses a planar magnetic mid/woofer, & ribbon tweeter. Full specs here: http://analysisaudiousa.com/omega.phpI've heard nothing better, only a few that equal them (and those are always 2-3x more). It's the only planar I've ever heard that does bass & dynamics without needing a subwoofer. (The bass panel has a suspension, see, and therefore capable of some excursion).Thanks for asking!
Despite my volume complaints, I really do like the sound of this unit and want to make it work . Part of that involved a bit of repair - it arrived with some damage to the rear panel, by the "L" channel RCA output. I did my best to "unbend" it, with partial success. At least now the RCA jack is secure, if a little mis-aligned compared to the others. It doesn't affect the functionality one bit. Before: After...
You're right about it being a non-issue for most people here. You're tethered with a cable to the headphones, and probably 90% of the time controls are accessed via the front panel.But sorry, the volume IS sloppy executed. I've owned "stepped" units in the past with remotes. They ALL responded to a constant button depression by continuing to change the steps until you took your finger off the button. It really has nothing to do with the type of attenuation. It's...
Thanks clams, That is just a nutty way to do volume control. I have not read all 103 pages, so maybe I missed this, but....am I the only person who's noticed this? It's a deal breaker for me, as remote volume is the way I use this 99% of the time in my main speaker setup. Headphone use is occasional. I also don't like the noise pops that come through when I change inputs. This is BASIC housekeeping. I'm a bit stunned that this type of sloppy execution is still out there...
Hi, Can someone help me out? I recently got a used NFB-28 and am experiencing weird behavior with controlling volume via the remote. The volume only changes ONE step, even while keeping the up (or down) button fully depressed. This is unlike any other remote-controlled volume adjustment I've ever seen. I want to know if this is something peculiar to my unit, or typical. Can someone try their remote volume adjustment and report back? Thanks!

It's been a long while, but I had a good time at the last meeting here, so I am in. My gear is rather limited: HD580s and an IBasso DX50. What I can bring that's unique are original, acoustic, live hi-res recordings of Jazz & Classical music from nearby PA musicians.
2nd owner, I got this as barter for some assembly work I did for a friend. Works fine, in very good shape (see the photos. I don't have the manual or the original shipping carton - but the soft case & the short cable are included. I simply don't need this, it's been sitting unused for over a year. Needs a good home....This is NOT the first item I've sold here. Don't know what happened to my previous (all +) feedback, either. Oh well...found some from these...
