Hello, what do you suggest as upgrade from NFB12.1 (connected through USB - it has old interface with TE7022 chip). I would like to have a bit better sound than NFB12.1 (I have HD600)
NFB15.1 (after I'll sell NFB12.1, will cost me 32 more euro. )
NFB11.32 (will cost me 80 more euro - will the increase in quality match 50 eur, over NFB15.1 improvement?)
NFB5.2 (will cost me 165 more euro)
I would like to ask where will be improvement most worth of money... NFB15.1 (30 euro) vs NFB11.32 (80 euro) or NFB5.2 (165 euro)?
How do you compare NFB5.2 to NFB11.32?
Or additional options? (but only with limit $200) For example, let NFB12.1 and buy Hiface 2, and use coaxial instead USB (129 more euro)?
Well, I never listened to the NFB-12 so really can't compare. I would say the NFB-11.32 would be an upgrade, using the Sabre chip and the 32/384 usb implementation. It is more detailed and transparent. Very good all-in-one device.
I can't help you there axw. One of the reasons for purchasing the 11.32 is to do away with the converters, due to its usb implementation. I own some converters but none of the ones you listed.
Almost there Peter. Once it departs HK, a couple days DHL will deliver.
