pzm9pzm9, you may not save a lot on shipping by buying multiple big items at once, but you can ask to see how much you would save. If I were you, I would decide if you either want dac19dsp+DI, or the NFB-11 (or NFB-11+DI), and only buy one to see how you like audio-gd's house sound. I feel bad to say this since audio-gd must not be making much money on these, but I would suggest getting NFB-11 over the dac19 hehe, you can take the much smaller NFB-11 with you between home and office.
Will the DI really help here? I though the Sabre chip is less source dependent as the old chip. I am thinking of getting a NFB-11 too and connect to my laptop through usb. I am wondering if the coax input will be noticeably better here. If it is, I will probably get the DI as well (B version). Also, will the DPS actually improve the performance of the DI?
