That's kinda funny you mention that. I bought a nfb1amp and the master11 was released while the order was processing. I cancelled it and upgraded to master 11 immediately. I figured it was a no brainer yet I wasn't ready to shell out the cash. I made it happen anyhow. You could be patient and yet the promo deal of 5% off, plus the free Amanero combo 384 deal. That's pretty hard to beat! My personal opinion is I prefer an all in one, as space is limited. Otherwise, the m7/m9 combo is pretty darn awesome! I would still choose the master11. It works for my needs and the amp is pretty darn amazing.
