Audio-GD NFB-15.32 Delivery & Impression Thread - Page 22

post #316 of 407

Anyone tried the NFB-15 2014 with the HD700's before? Was looking into the Aune X1 Pro or Aune T1, but some members recommended me to look into the NFB-15, and judging from the reviews, this is a great little amp/dac. My budget for now is $300.

 

I tried the HD700 with the Aune X1 Pro and really liked how it sounded, so if someone has had the chance to listen to both of these amps, I love to hear your thoughts.

 

Edit: Can someone also please explain the difference between the NFB-11 and NFB-15 and how it effects the sound?

 

Edit 2: Went back a few pages (16& 18 for those interested) and read the reviews and difference between 11 and 15 by Heat fan and Purple. Think I will be going with the NFB-11's after reading those...but then again A little warmness from the 15 sounds pretty good too since the HD700's are very detailed already.

 

Thanks.

I had the HD700 and NFB-12 (basically same model as NFB-15, but with older USB implementation).  They go well together.  Plenty of resolution and din't feel I was missing anything.  The entry point Audio-gd gear is very good IMO.  I've hung onto my '-12' even after going to the T1.  It does everything I want, and so far haven't felt the need to upgrade.

When you say t1 do you mean the Aune t1? If so, what would you say is the biggest difference between the t1 and NFB-12?

Pretty sure he's referring to his headphones Beyerdynamics T1's

I haven't tried the NFB-15.32 with the HD700's but I have tried it with all my headphones in my list and it drives them all just fine and i'm really impressed with the sound quality

Hey, What is better? o2 + odac or this, the NFB-15.32. I can get the NFB for about $20 cheaper to ship to Canada, not sure about the import taxes on both.

The NFB-15 (newer revision of the NFB-15.32) comes with more feature, like 3 digital inputs (vs ODAC is USB only)

and the NFB-15 comes with a separate (2-channel) line-output, for speakers or other.

The NFB-15 might be considered a little more musical, to where as the ODAC (with O2) might offer a little better detail.

 

When Audio-GD ships you the $270(?) NFB-15, it will list the value, with the shipper, as $100.

So you would only pay an import tax (into Canada) for a $100 value, not a $270 value.

Do the sound signatures change? (Bass, mids and treble)

 

NFB15 $250 + $30 shipping.
o2 + odac $274.95 + $22.70 shipping.

All in USD.

 

I swear it's going to cost around $360 CAD with shipping and taxes..

There are some O2/ODACs built into one unit, might be a little cheaper.

 

If I'm understanding your question, sound signatures will not really change.

Like one of the guys who sell the o2 + odac said, "Yes, ours will increase your bass response 10 fold and increase the sibilance. Ours also has smoother highs and faster mids."

Seeing you live in Canada and have the NFB15, do you mind me asking how much import taxes and duties did have to pay? also what shipping company was it when it arrived at your door, Canada post?
