I am interested in the Audio-gd NFB-10.32 and the Schiit Asgard 2 for a set of LCD-2s. Can you guys provide some guidance? I'm leaning towards the NFB-10.32 since it has tons of power and looks like it'll be more future-proof in the long run and it includes a good DAC as well.
 
Also, how do customs and import fees work on Audio-gd products? I'm located in the California if that helps.

Audio-GD usually marks the items as low value, so that helps avoid extra charges. I was pretty happy with my NFB-10. It even powered my HE-6 well. However, you'll need balanced cables to get the most out of it.

Thank you for replying. That's good to hear. How long did it take you to get the unit after ordering it? How would you compare it to the SA-31 you have from them if I may ask?

If it's in stock, you usually get Audio GD gear within the week.
 
I upgraded from the NFB-10 to the SA-1/SA-31 stack and am pretty happy with the improvements. The SA-1/SA-31 has a more 3-D sound stage with a blacker background and a more laid back treble. The NFB-10 feels wider left to right, but doesn't quite have the same depth.
