You need a integrated head amp , 88 /176/192khz support , S/PDIF input go with A-GD , you want a separeted head amp , no s/pdif input , no custom driver , go with ODAC .

so the Quality is about the same? (AGD uses Sabre ES9018 , ODAC uses ES9023)

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.
