For Sale:
Audio GD NFB-10ES Balanced DAC/ Amp Sabre ES9018 NEW LOW PRICE

Will Ship To: Anywhere

ABSOLUTELY NO TRADES! PLEASE, I am not interested in ANY trades for ANYTHING! I don't want to seem nasty, but I have already spent $2K on a new unit from Audio GD!!

 

I'm selling my near mint condition, very rare, 120V Audio GD NFB-10ES. I bought this a few months back to try out a balanced setup, specifically based on the ES9018, and it is awesome!! I've now moved to a much more expensive Audio GD balanced setup, so this needs to go.

 

The new price of this unit was $880 + $50 shipping + $30 PayPal = $960. Buy it now for around HALF, AND, you don't have to sit around for the very painful 2 week long break in period!!!

 

This unit is in perfect condition except for a small dent on one of the feet (you'd never notice it, but it's shown in the pic anyway, and please note the scale - the dent is very small!) and includes the power cord. Here is a link to the product page: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB10XLR/NFB10EN.htm

 

For whatever reason, Audio GD assembled a batch of these units with the faceplate from the Roc, and this is one of them. The only difference aside from the wording on the faceplate, is that the gain switch is located at the rear of this unit though it appears as a power switch. So, it has all of the buttons, and all of the functionality it is supposed to, but Audio-GD assembled some units with the alternate faceplate. I have no idea why, and I am the 2nd owner.

 

Also, I don't have much feedback here, but my username on eBay is: mp360cs (over 800 feedback, over 14 years!). Shipping will be actual charges via UPS or USPS only (from 07747), and I will eat PayPal.

I'm shocked this hasn't sold yet; these units NEVER go up for sale - probably because of the truly incredible sound! I have now owned 5 units from Audio GD, and in my opinion, this is the best looking piece they've EVER made (so far). It sounds as good as you'd expect from something like this from Audio GD - VERY neutral, TONS of detail, zero fatigue, highly musical, powerful bass! It seems to do everything right. Also, it FEELS good when you use it; it looks and feels like the piece of high end gear that it is. It's one and only drawback is that it doesn't have a lot of inputs, but that's what splitters are for ;)

 

 

Price lowered - I want this out of my office! =)

Confused. You're advertising NFB-10 but photo shows a different piece of gear, the Roc.

Good observation, you ARE partially correct sir. Having owned this for a few months, I did completely forget to mention that for whatever reason, Audio GD did make this unit (as well as some others) with the faceplate from the Roc. The rear of the unit is normal, as shown in the photos on the Audio GD website with one exception: the gain switch that's missing from the front of the unit is on the rear. However, please rest assured, this IS an NFB-10ES. I will post more pics later for clarification. Thanks for pointing this out!
