For Sale:
Audio GD NFB-10ES 120/240V Balanced DAC/ Amp Sabre ES9018 REVISED LISTING

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I'm selling my near mint condition, rare, Audio GD NFB-10ES. It is 120V, but can easily be switched to 240V. I bought this a few months back to try out my first balanced setup, specifically based on the incredible ES9018, and balanced is in fact awesome!! Because of this, I've now moved to a much more expensive Audio GD balanced setup, so this needs to go.


ABSOLUTELY NO TRADES! PLEASE, I am not interested in ANY trades for anything. I don't want to sound nasty, it's just that I've already spent $2K(!) on my new dream unit from Audio GD!!


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. 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 asked Kingwa why this was like this (I am the 2nd owner), and he said this is just how they built the earlier units, and it is in fact correct and I should not try to swap faceplates.

 

The new price of this unit was $880 + $50 shipping + $30 PayPal = $960. Buy it now for LESS THAN HALF, AND, you don't have to sit around for the very painful 2 week long break in period!!! Here is a link to the product page: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB10XLR/NFB10EN.htm


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


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, ZERO harshness, 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 ;)

I don't want to sound like I'm whining, but I honestly don't get why this hasn't sold yet?! I've had about 20 offers from people (LOTS of declined trades) who seemed like they wanted it, and every person has just disappeared! Maybe I smell =)   I thought this unit would be sold within a week or so, and I've had it listed for a few months! What the heck? I paid $650 for it a few months ago and was thrilled that I finally got this unit! In 10 years in sales, and 15 years buying and selling things online (mostly audio), this is by far the longest it's ever taken to sell anything! I just don't get it. Maybe it's because it doesn't have USB, and while I've still never even tried USB (and I'm 35 years old), who cares? It seems like a newer, better USB connection comes around every 6 months anyways. Seems to me (I could be wrong) you'd actually be better off with a converter.

 

I'm baffled    :confused:

Seems people are forgetting Audio-gd products pretty quickly... Yous is definitely a great price (lower than when I asked you, had it been this I would have bought from you...)
