Audiolab MDAC vs Audio GD DAC NFB 17.2 + NFB-6

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

can anyone suggest, if buying Audio GD DAC NFB 17.2 + NFB-6 would be an upgrade from Audiolab MDAC. It would cost roughly the same. I'm going to use with with LCD2 and probably either HD800 or T1 in the future. I currently have Audio GD Fun, which cost less than half of Audiolab MDAC and I don't think I hear much of improvement whatsoever!

 

Thanks

I've actually just ordered Audio GD DAC 5.2 and NFB6 to go with it and will send the MDAC back as I somehow feel that for 800 EUR which the MDAC cost I'll get better quality with Audio GD. I actually like Audio GD Fun more (at least over Headphones than MDAC) and it cost less than 50%. This chinease manufacturing is really haaaard to beat.

Now I've read that the NFB6 is only good via balanced headphone jack, wtf... oh man :((( I didnt know that how come damn :) I guess I'll probably have to recable the LCD 2...

You might not need to recable it. This is an option: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/Phoenix/ModifyEN.htm
