right now i have the he500 + Audio-GD NFB-11.32.

But since the vali got released i kinda want to buy the modi+vali cuz it looks so sleek :P and i heard its good.

so im wondering which one will be better for he500 ? modi+vali or 11.32 ?

 

and i will maybe sell my he500 and buy back a hd650.

will the hd650 be better with 11.32 or modi+vali ?

 

NFB-11.32 has S/N of 118dB, Vali only 93dB - you would be going below 16 bit resolution as far as SQ is concerned.

Can the NFB 11.32 connect to an iPod, Zune, phone, etc?

What about the Bottlehead Crack? And how does the Crack connect to a computer?

I would assume the 11.32 was designed mainly to be connected digitally (USB, optical, coaxial) to a computer.

I've connected my iPod thru this docking station.

Substituting exclusively for mainly is more accurate

For the Crack, something like:

So with those cables, the 3.5mm would plug into the portable player or the 3.5mm port ob my computer, and the two RCA's plug into the crack?

Can the NFB 11.32 connect to an iPod, Zune, phone, etc? If the source (ie iPod/PC etc) has a USB out, or optical/coaxial out then absolutely yes you'd connect it to the 11.32. Can it output it's signal to the above?? No.. you wouldn't be doing that, no way.

 

What about the Bottlehead Crack? And how does the Crack connect to a computer? Er... well it's an amplifier.. in this context you'd connect it to your 11.32 via it's RCA out's on the back. The 11.32 has an amplifier in it though, so adding Crack is an advanced option.

 

So with those cables, the 3.5mm would plug into the portable player or the 3.5mm port ob my computer, and the two RCA's plug into the crack? Er..... You would not be using 3.5mm jacks anywhere near the above setup (apart from maybe your headphones). The 11.32 is used solely for digital connections from a digital source: PC/Mac/iPod etc> optical/Spdif/coax cable > 11.32 > headphones.

 

Bit confused as to what you're asking... maybe I shouldn't be attempting to answer any of them unless I have a clearer picture :smile:

Yes. Whether you will like the sound is another matter.

Thanks for your helpful answers. As a followup, I don't have RCA out's on my computer. Would I have to buy a new sound card or something? My current sound card just has 3.5mm and optical outs.

Optical out will be fine with the NFB-11

Connecting your sound card directly to the Crack could be good or bad, depending on the quaility of your sound card

To an analog input (CDP or dac or vinyl player)

Why would the 11.32 work exclusively with a computer?

I would assume there are many non-computer audio devices that come with a USB, optical or coaxial output.
