Gungnir vs audio-gb nfb-1

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking for a DAC under 1000.

I have looked long and hard through the various forums, looks like these 2 are my finalists, possibly a music hall 25.3 to round it off.

I would run a synology nas via usd to the DAC to the amp.

Any suggestions?

Anything else in this range that just kicks it so much that it should be added to this list? I am not looking for an exhaustive list as I have seen the ones already created.

Thanks.

I've only heard Gungnir, and you get pretty good value for your money.  If you have a fully balanced system, you really can't go wrong with that one.  Plus, if you don't like it, you can always send it back within 15 days.

 

Only thing being is that I found the Gungir/Mjolnir combo to be a bit on the bright side, which can be a good thing depending on the headphones you're using.  How much of it was from Gungnir I can't really say.

I am only using speakers at this point, ascend Sierra 1st.

I don't think I am running balanced, I have a little cambridge audio azur 351.

I am leaning towards the gungnir as most of the people raving about agb seem to be using the higher models.

I got some great advice on the forum about other upgrades as well - Sierra 2s and another amp - but I started with the DAC so I thought I would pull the trigger on that.

I live in Dubai so returns are not really an option, hence my looking for advice here.

Thanks
