any comparisons of D8 vs NFB-28 are welcome. Keep us informed.
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.
I just paid for mine yesterday and King-wa said 5 days till shipment.
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.
But I am still in my baby/noob years when it comes to these things :)
Audio Gear and hot cakes....delicious.
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.
