I just preordered my NFB-11. It's quite stupid how they don't list the price.


I can imagine your frustration.  Kingwa had just said no more DAC units of any type would be coming out until next year.

You just paid for the NFB-11 and had you known about this new NFB-10 you might have gone for it instead.

I was about to get the m-stage for my K701s, but this looks interesting. Any thoughts about how the amp section in this will stack up against the m-stage amp?

On paper NFB-11 is far superior, the M-Stage is a cheap op-amp solution, NFB-11 is discrete. In reality, noone knows yet smily_headphones1.gif

Has anyone received their tracking info from the first batch ordered?

Not yet, but I asked Edwin and he said the NFB-11 would be shipping the 23rd thus today.

.....I believe this is the first DAC product using Sabre32 that will send a direct I2S signal from USB to the chip. 
 


I don't believe this is true. The humble TI PCM2707 is capable of direct I2S output, and I've personally seen it configured this way in a Buffalo32. For commercial products, the EE MiniMax DAC also used a 2707 and very likely went straight out as I2S (why would they bother converting to SPDIF when it is not needed?). I can't confirm, but I also suspect the original W4S DAC1 used a 2707 in this way as well, and that the updated version uses the Tenor TE7022 for USB which yet again sends I2S to the ES9108.

My bad... Did some research and you are right! I´ll edit the post.

He said there would be no new audio-gd dedicated dac's for 2010.

 

And people who want to cancel their NFB-11 order because you just learned about the NFB-10, I suggest you contact audio-gd ASAP and maybe they have not shipped the NFB-11 out to you yet.

The NFB-10 doesn´t seem to be at a promo price. If you look at the chassis, power supply design etc it´s clearly in a different league. The NFB-11 seems to be a limited run entry level fun project on steroids. A Super-Sparrow in the impulse buy category... I wonder if we´ll see a DAC+AMP combo that uses the big chassis with 3 R-Cores. That would be interesting :-)

Actually, I haven't paid for the 11 yet. I emailed them and asked them about the 10 price, so if it's an insane promo deal like the 11, I may get the 10 instead. We'll see and I'll inform you of their response.

I´m also expecting for the 10´s price! I don´t think it´ll perform as a NFB-1 + Roc combo but might get near.

I think he has enough products to fit everyone's budget, don't you?  I doubt he would make a combo unit of the high-end line of products because that would seem to go against his philosophy.

 

What is the price of the NFB-10?  I haven't seen it posted.

Audio-GD hasn't posted the price on the product page yet, strangely

Not unusual at all.
