    My Millett "Starving Student" Hybrid headphone amplifier, sitting atop the Audio-gd NFB-12. The enclosure I used for my MSSH is almost the same size as the NFB-12. It's the Hammond 1455T2201. I installed orange LEDs inside the tube sockets, but I used low intensity LEDs so they are useless. The tube

    Audio-gd NFB-12. Holes drilled in the bottom of the case, bellow the circuit board. These holes, along a gap in the cover, allow the unit to breathe.

    Audio-gd NFB-12 with low intensity orange LED. Notice the cover is higher. I placed washers between it and the case to have a 1mm gap where air can flow.

    REVIEW : Revisiting the Brainwavz HM5 – A Retrospective (plus bonus look at pad and cup options)

    Pros: SQ, clarity, comfort, build, balance, accessories, isolation, value, carry case (new), pad options Cons: Clamp force, slightly lacking some bass relative to treble (easy EQ though), pads can get sweaty, not the best for spectacle wearers. For larger views of any of the photos...

    Audio-GD NFB-12: Does the "DAC Out" bypass the amp section?

    Thinking about using one between my source and a dedicated amp, like a Little Dot.   Apologies if this is a FAQ.

    Upgrade Suggestions from NFB-12

    I have one of the first NFB-12's that were shipped, i.e. before any of the tweaks or additions of filters. It has served me well and continues to perform dutifully with my Ultrasones Pro 900's. I'm curious what's the next step up, in terms of performance and quality. Since I have been so...
