customNuts,

any comparisons of D8 vs NFB-28 are welcome. Keep us informed.

I just ordered the NFB-28. Does anyone know an estimated shipping time. I think today is the last day for Chinese holiday?

Roger that jaffar. I'm sure your aware but the D8 is on another level to the 28. Regardless, I have high expectations that the 28 will punch well above its price point. Also once you get to this level, the improvements get much smaller as you jump to true hi-end imo (generally speaking anyway).

It will be nice to compare the DAC's through the balanced amp on the 28. Awesome feature for dac comparisons.

btw i ordered the dual TXCO & asked for OCC wires as well but they are included. Another improvement for the 28 that wasn't listed on the website.

Can't wait.

I am wondering if I made a good decision purchasing this. I was wanting to get something for my Mad Dog's. So I am not sure if I wanted to get something darker...but more neutral in terms of the DAC and Amp. Also, I am wanting to test the theory of if giving these headphones more power offer better performance. This why I chose the NFB-28 over the 10ES2/3. I am coming from both a FiiO E10 and a Schiit Magni/Modi. It seems that I am becoming more critical of sound and on the Schiit magni/Modi stack, I sometimes feel vocals don't have a "fullness" about them...to a point where it sounds tinny. I am not sure if I am making sense.

Absolutely. Upper mid tier Audio-Gd gear is very safe buying. 

All of it is imo but more so this category. Your very close to the top and your paying no where near it.

If you look at the shipment schedule on their website, not surprisingly, the nfb-28's are selling like hot cakes.

Yeah, I just did CTRL+F "NFB-28" on the shipping page, and got 19 results. Hopefully, some of these guys are from Head-Fi and will report back on how it works with their headphones.

As for me, the NFB-28 is running awesome, I probably won't bother upgrading DAC/amp for years to come. My next DAC requirement is a network streaming connection instead of USB, and/or some sort of local playback via SDHC cards. The idea is to get rid of clock-based transport from an operating system like Windows.

Now, I'm in a research phase on which headphones to upgrade from my D5000. Currently LCD-XC and T1 are on top of my list.

I love my D7000's (used to own D2000) and bought the T1's as an alternate upgrade. They are an excellent and worthy upgrade. Much more nutreal but also higher perfroming. A fantastic all rounder. The denons still are second to none with musicality when synergy calls for it which is why I kept them but the T1's are awesome when feed with an appropriately high performing rig. I'm happy to let you know how my balanced T1's go on the 28 in relation to my balanced D7000's if you like. 

I owned LCD2 rev1 and found the T1's higher resolving. Very different phones though & I'm sure the new LCDXC will be pretty awesome.

Thanks, definitely interested in how T1 compares to D7000 on NFB-28. My biggest concern about upgrading to new headphones is how bad/mediocre recordings will sound, since these kind of albums make up majority of my music collection. The D5000s seems to do a pretty good job at "masking" the imperfections (catch-22 game with resolving headphones). This is why I leaning towards the Audeze's at this point. Maybe once my high resolution and well mastered music collection becomes at least 25% in total size, I'll buy the T1. LCD-XC and T1 sounds like a good combo to have. smily_headphones1.gif

Is signature required from delivery through DHL. I have no idea when my unit is coming in and would have been nice if I was provided a tracking number.

Audio-gd emailed me a tracking number about 3 days after receiving payment. I think they wait for a day or so until the package is in the DHL system before giving you the tracking number, but you can always ask them to be sure. I did had to sign for it when it arrived (San Francisco, USA).
