Audio-gd NFB-28 - Page 16

post #226 of 1663

True to that, its inconvinient. Even simple NFB-12 had this option on the front panel via switch.

post #227 of 1663

Do any of their other balanced dacs have a switch?

post #228 of 1663

Audio-GD?  No.  It really isn't needed.  If you want a fixed output... just don't use the dial... boom fixed output :P

No.

If I remember well, "fixed" for NFB-12 was nothing more than "variable" with volume set at 12 o'clock. I always used it in variable mode, even when feeding a preamp.

Sure dude, just leave the volume at max and have two sets of pots in the signal path instead of one.  It isn't strictly 'needed' but....why did Audio GD provide fixed in the first place?

post #231 of 1663

There is no pot in the NFB-28 just a resistor which is what fixed would be anyway.

post #232 of 1663

Well a resistor isn't the same as a pot, granted, but it's still unnecessary if not needed- and you didn't answer my question at to why audio gd provide a fixed option.

I don't work for Audio-GD but I would assume it is because someone asked and it's very easy to do.

Great answer..

post #235 of 1663

Some questions.

First one is more general due to my lack of knowledge: would there be any problems hooking up something like a turntable + phono pre-amp to the back analog inputs or is this not really optimal?

Second question: did anybody ever actually test the warmness jumpers to see if they affect all inputs?

Third: does anybody know the power output specs for the single ended headphone output? Only balanced is listed on the site it would seem.

Fourth: why can't I have more money so I don't have to worry about the cost of this amp? I really want to order one and some LCD-2's :tongue_smile:.

First: there should be no problem within the specs [0.7V RMS to 5V RMS (RCA)] of analog input

Third: very close to the corresponding NFB-10.33 specs

So that's what those numbers mean... lol, cool. Thanks. And thanks for the power specs.

Subtle , it seems to just take away a little dynamics off agd es9018 house sound.
You would be better off with 10.33 if you prefer warmness with agd, as good but more lush.
post #239 of 1663

And he would be better off with Compass 2 if he mainly uses the single ended output

post #240 of 1663

Thanks, but I plan on using balanced, and the 10.33 doesn't have analog in (+ future-proofing either way). I was asking about the single ended b/c if I wanted to try IEM's with it I wanted to know how that would work - I didn't want to bump the volume knob and throw 5 watts at them haha.
