My Audio-gd Compass just died, which is a shame because I'd been very happy with it. I went to the Audio-gd website to order another one but the Compass is no longer listed.
The equivalent seems to be the NFB-5. Is that a good replacement for the Compass or is there another DAC+Amp in the $300-$500 price range that's worth considering?
Also, is the only difference between the NFB-5 and NFB-5.2 related to the USB input? I only use the optical input so if the only difference is USB related I'd probably go for the cheaper of the two.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
