did somebody compare both ?
ODAC , or Audio-GD NFB-11.32 (as DAC) , Anybody?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Implantation it was most matter , wich DAC chip less at least for Delta sigma .
The ES9018 has better specs yes , and A-GD implantation seams more elaborate .
But for me ODAC and NFB-17.2 (with filter that don't roll off highs) sounded the same level matched, but well we all hear differently so ... peraphs NFB-11.32 will sound better than ODAC at your hears, or not , there is no garantee .
IF you want simple as possible and want to save Money go ODAC many agree that for the price it works very well , if you feel the need for a more expensive unite and think that it could sound better and don't want to look back go NFB-11.32 that also have good reviews .

I have tried them both as DACs feeding my Little Dot MKIV SE & the Audio-GD seemed to me clearly superior. I would guess that the output stage of the O-DAC is under-powered.
The amp in the Audio-GD is much more than an after-thought: it drives my AKG701s very well.
