i am using nfb-11.32 as a dac/amp combo with he500 which gives about 2.7W into the headphones so it is above the recommended power input for he500. I can use the dac and another amp if i wish but i cannot use the head amp alone from the 11.32 and use another dac of my choosing. Although you can use the amp of compass2 if you do not use the dac.. atleast that is what i heard...
The compass is an audio gd dac + the C2.2 (now replaced by the Nfb6) amp put together in the same box. You can use it as stand alone preamp/headamp/dac/variable dac output.
The Audio-gd dac/amp combos use current drive for the headphone out, that's why you cannot use it as a dedicated headphone amp.
Also is that paracord sleeving? where did you get that nice blue color
