I should really update my profile with more stuff I've owned, and what is here and gone. But-too much work lol. Also-it's all about synergy and preference-it's not cut and dry 'this component beats that component' etc. I realize that the NFB would be technically behind the 27 and Master series-but as a cheaper all in one alternative, and balanced at this price-seems just phenomenal.

That's right-how's that guy treating you anyway? I can't remember what headphones you're using with it-but I bet most orthos would be pretty amazing with it.
On another note-I'm sorry to say that I've cancelled my NFB 28 order for the time being. Kudos to KINGWA for issuing me a refund with no questions asked in the span of ELEVEN MINUTES after emailing him with the request. (I did mention all the prior products I've bought from him, sly me ). Reason for doing so was that I'm now contemplating buying the BDA-2 to match with my BHA-1 instead-so I'd have no need for a second ss, balanced rig at this point. I may be heading across country for work periodically now-and if so-I will DEFINITELY pick up a NFB 28 as that would be a pretty convenient, transportable, balanced, AIO.
Looking forward to your guy's impressions-and hope to be able to add my own sooner rather than later.
