The I/V conversion volume control without sound degradation

I am not saying it's not true, it might very well be. I just don't know what to believe any more. Lots of contradictions here at head-fi, enough to possibly question everything and anything [and things are questioned here on a daily basis]

 

Not aimed at you, just in general. Thanks for that link :beerchug:

The advantages of DACTs over POTs are not really of much debate even on HF.
There are people preferring POTs for their ability to set finer volume than a stepped DACT. For me the nfb28's 160 steps is fine enough for volume adjustments.

Top amps like GSX Mk2 offer the DACT volume control as an $200 upgrade over stock POTs. It is really a bargain to have it on nfb28 by default. But I guess there is no way for kingwa to include this on compass 2. Similarly, hifiman uses the stepped attenuation on its flagship hm901, but replaces it with POTs for it's little bro hm802.

Ok.
I certainly prefer the feeling of the pot though.

Nice... smily_headphones1.gif How are you liking it and what headphone do you pair it with?

Currently just pairing it with HD650's, but am looking to upgrade those. :dt880smile:

Boy I've got to say this NFB-28 is one nice unit. I am currently using the HD650's with Oyaide cable. And the sound is pretty detailed yet smooth. Really liking it. :gs1000smile:
