Worthwhile upgrade to Audio-GD NFB12 ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello guys , 

 

I'm kind of new to this stuff , and i currently have a uDAC-2 and a Grado SR80i . 

 

I was thinking of getting a AudioGD NFB12 :

"Dual WM8741 inside

Dedicated DAC +   HP/Pre amp
Dedicated DAC  variable and fixed line level 
24Bit / 96KHz USB input and 
24Bit / 192KHz Coaxial input support
Applies ACSS "

 

---

 

Just need some advice to whether it will be a worthwhile upgrade ?

Will be getting a better piece of headphones in the future so might be getting DAC first. 

 

So , any ideas? 

 

Thanks (:

That looks pretty nice. At that price point I might also research the Matrix M-Stage, or a decent tube hybrid amp. Fournier HTA, Little Dot III, HiFiMan EF2A. Cheers.

I had the udac2 and got a tube hybrid amp. It warmed up (in a good way) my DT990's. I have read that tubes really do wonders for the grados too. Also, the udac2 is not bad at all, I'm just saying if you want a "different" sound tubes might be the way to go.
