When you compared them how long had they been on for? In my experience dacs, especially audio gd ones sound a lot better once theyve been left on for a few hours.

 

Great tip, thanks! I did have them on for a few hours. I've also had the Bifrost/Asgard 2 for a couple years now, and the biggest win with the NFB-10 has been the reduction in listening fatigue. Not sure if anyone else has had that experience with the Bifrost/Asgard 2.

 

I'm looking forward to actually using them with balanced cans! Right now I'm just pairing it with my Mad Dogs and HD-650s, but in a few weeks I have a ZMF Omni arriving.

Markus, I recently bought the NFB-10.33 and am really pleased with the power of the amp on the unit. I can tell you I've tried my alpha dogs with both the 1/4" and the balanced output and the balanced output is much more detailed and pronounced. I would assume you'd experience a similar improvement.

Interesting. You could try to hook up the NFB-10 to the Asgard and see if it's still fatiguing. Depending on the recording, it could be the Schiit stack is being more faithful to the recording. 

 

 

Balancing is a dangerous (expensive) road, but it can be fun. Hope you like the Omnis. Did you get a balanced cable for the HD650?
