I'd probably go with the NFB15 for HiFiMAN.

 



Thank you. My listening times probably are 80% HE-500 and 20% HE-4, being the 20% for specific fun listening or gaming. For me, the real deal for serious listening is the HE-500. Since i already have an Sabre DAC (ODAC) and a warm hybrid amplifier (EF5), what can i expect for the NFB 11 for the HE-500 vs my current setup? Will be a good idea to choose the NFB 15 to have "another flavor" for the HE-500 and keep my current desktop gear?

Cheers!
I think the 11 will be close to ODAC. The 15 will be more in-between the EF5 & ODAC.
I'd really go with the NFB15 if I had the ODAC and EF5 myself.
The NFB11 should be a bit too edgy and bright for neutral headphones, like Hifimans.

Once again, thank you very much. I'm going to go for the NFB 15.

Does the NFB 15 support DSD? if that's of any concern...

post #1459 of 1463
Yes, DSD support. I have maybe 2 dsd files. Most of my library is flac, i really don't care much about dsd
post #1460 of 1463
NFB15 does not support it, no. But it wouldn't trouble me either as I have no DSD/DXD files either biggrin.gif

Going to order the 15 as soon as they respond to my email. They must still be enjoying the holiday.

I considered the fact that it doesn't have DSD support, but quickly realized that wouldn't matter to me at all. I don't own any DSD tracks and very few, if any, artists I listen to are available in that format anyway. Add to that the likelihood that I almost certainly wouldn't hear a difference, and that seals the deal...for me anyway.

Now, if the would just reply. *sigh*.

Hello, I'm lost as to what to choose between 11.32 or NFB-15.32 for the Hifiman HE-560 (if they can be driven by these) or the latest LCD-2's (fazor)? Does anyone have any experience with pairing either of them with those headphones? 

 

Any feedback is appreciated. 

 

Thanks.

Ok, my bad. Anyway, I don't care about dsd. The very few dsd files I have are converted via foobar plugin to PCM. They sound good that way and I don't feel I'm missing something.
