Audio-GD NFB-11 - Page 21

post #301 of 987

I was on the list for the November build, and I opted to wait.  Who the heck cares? I mean, if I had no D/A converter or no headphone amp, then no, I would not want to wait.  But I have gear coming out of my.... ears. 

 

Which reminds me, I have to start selling some of this redundant equipment. I wonder what the various merits of selling stuff here, or Audiogon or eBay are.  Like, where are maximum prices to be found?  Fastest sales turnaround?

I took option #4 and swapped my order for the NFB-2. Had a y2 previously and really liked the Wolfson chip. Here's hoping that double the fun means even better performance!

I don't think you'll be disappointed, I have the NFB-3 and it offers really great performance at the price IMO.

I'm a bit torn between waiting or buying a FUN with the rebate.

yeh the FUN is tempting me too...grrr  I'd really want to get the NFB-3.. but it doesn't have the outputs choice of the NFB-11 and FUN sadly.

I might like the sound of the Wolfson... I don't know.. I've never heard one before. But I do like the Signature of the AD825/AD8397 Op-amps.

help?  :)

I contacted Audio-gd and decided to go with a Version A FUN HA/DAC.  They offered me the 5% discount on the FUN and they said they will be shipping it out in the next 4 days.  I feel that the FUN is bit of a step up from the NFB-11 in their product line.  Hopefully I will see it this next week.

I'll be staying with my NFB-11 pre-order.


At first I thought the same about the FUN.. but the more I looked at the NFB-11.. I'm not so sure now....

The NFB-11 looks to be a marvel of miniaturization through transistorisation :) and integration around it's Sabre32 chip and power supply sections. Made more affordable with it's uncapped ACSS sections, tight integration.. etc 

Plus I still want to hear the vaunted ESS Sabre32 chip, and this is by far the least expensive way to that brain-candy!

The FUN dose use the Wolfson WM8741 which is still a highly regarded DAC chip, a larger power supply, the ACSS system and a more flexible pre-amp section.  I feel this is still a good gateway product into the Audio-gd family of products to evaluate.

i think he's trying to give you a better offer if you buy a more expensive product instead of the NFB-11

On site http://www.ampcity.co.uk/audio-gd-dac-amp-nfb-11.html

For NFB-11 ships from 20th November 2010. :)

post #311 of 987

Thanks for the link, didn't know about that store. I've just pre-ordered mine :)

post #312 of 987

My understanding is there is no clear shipping date on the NFB-11 or NFB-10es at present.  The 20th of November was a provisional hope. Audio-Gd are emailing me when problem is sorted so I can order more stock.

 

I am confident that when the Tenor usb ess9018 problem is sorted we will be informed (and there will be dancing in the streets :) )

 

Regards

If you order a FUN don't forget to get OPA EARTH or MOON (depending on your headphone and on your taste), MOON give you a big chesty medium and slightly wider soundstage, and smoother highs but you'll keep the extension in high frequencies...

 

For the EARTH i can't explain because i Don't own them, but i'm sure they sound pretty good too !
