Since you were there and the device was yours, could you kindly elaborate in different words these statements about the new NFB 3 made by J. Darko, and did you wholly agree with him on this? I mean, how bad could it be to have better resolution?... 'In your face' sound is a different issue, independent of the level of data-mining involved. Did it sound too clinical? Thanks for any clarification.
"The control DAC, an Audio-gd NFB-3 (2014 version, US$499), bested both rivals in communicating finer details with greater energy and caffeination. The Audio-gd was also better extended at both ends of the frequency spectrum – more air, bigger bass.
That said, the Audio-gd might prove to be too in-yr-face for already highly resolving systems, for which the Essence HDACC (or Resonessence Labs) unit would be preferable."
(Of course, the other rival Darko refers to here is the Resonessence Concero HD)
