Does anyone have experience with the Audio GD NFB-28 with the HD800? I have that itch ... and I would like to try balanced maybe or at least heave that option.

There is an entire thread about it, I am sure you will also find comments using it with the HD800 :

Thanks icebear. That is the thread that raised my attention on it. I just read through the entire thread but I only saw one, maybe two posts about it's pairing with the HD800. I recall they were good together but not the best.

I don't have a lot of experience with different combinations to compare with. I will have to do more testing but I do know that in comparing MBAir -> FiiO E17 -> Little Dot II -> HD800 was too warm for my taste. I much prefer the sound coming out of MBAir -> Line Magnetic 502 CA -> LM Mini 218 IA -> HD800.

I like the flexibility of the NFB-28: SE and Balnced; somewhat transportable; Sabre chip; pre-amp; can work as DAC only; can work as amp only; remote control option; quality parts; other options...

I had NFB-10SE (wolfson). As a DAC it plays fine for the money it costs, but as he's a bad amp )). Do you get two, or three factors: itch Sabre chip + brightness 800 (their nature is bright, with stock cable) + amp NFB-28. I don't think you have a good sound
