Kingwa isn't the sort of person that would make a more expensive product like the NFB-2/3 if a cheaper product like NFB-12 sounded the same. I haven't heard the NFB-12 but it probably wont sound quite as good.
yea thanks for the info.. well i guess im not buying anything for now, i gotta get an slr camera 1st >.< i might get that maverick tube amp w/ the nfb3 if i get the money. it looks like they have free cables in their package?
I was responding to your "free cables" question. Yes, optical and USB cables are included but I doubt RCA is. (And yup, pre-amp.) This is a pretty kick-ass product for what it does (and how much it costs), but if you don't need the head-amp the NFB-3 is probably the better buy hands-down: beefier power supply, etc.
