Okay sorry, forgot about Linux, as he was asking for Android.

Any chance to run the speakers with RCAs instead of the XLR. Shouldn't really matter a whole lot unless you're really running a long connection.

My speakers can only accept xlr & I read the RCA isnt as good sq wise so that turned me off rca.

 

Guess Ill have to wait until those xbal 1x2 are available again.

Well, since that is the input on your speakers, I guess you've got to get an adapter anyway. :o

The older models with TE7022 for the USB receiver should work, but the current ones with USB-32 need specific drivers so it doesn't work.  The NFB-10 series is big and heavy so you can forget about carrying them around and using Android sources..

This is for an Android tablet, sitting in my chair or bed, no need to carry it around. You are right to focus on the USB transceiver chip. It seems like with Audio-gd moving to USB-32 he will abandon USB OTG connectivity. If it was ever important to him.

These splitters seem to require additional cables as they dont look to plug directly into the back of the NFB. Seems pretty messy with more cables & where to mount the splitters. Are there any other splitters that do fit into the rear xlr of the NFB?

Hi!

I've Beyerdynamic DT 250 (250 ohm). Could you help to chose between two DACs: NFB-10ES3 or NFB-10.33? What of them will be best for my headphones?

Are you going to use only the dac part ?

If not, do you intend to re-terminate (4 pin xlr) the cable of the particular cans ?

No, I'm going to use dac+amp (all-in-one). And no, I don't intend to re-terminate the cable. What the point? If it will be necessary, I can use rca-to-xlr adapter

You need 4 wires male xlr to take advantage of the balanced output of NFB-10.

I am not sure what exactly the adapter you mention does, but I cannot see how it could terminate to proper 4 pin xlr starting from TRS.

The NFB-10 from the single end output is no better than Compass 2, which is less expensive and has the additional advantage of analog inputs.

DT250 has 3-wire cable. So, it's inpossible to re-terminate it into 4-pin xlr.

There are three Compas 2 versions: ES9018, WM8741 & PCM5102. What is the best?

Goto the compass 2 thread , there is a mini review somewhere in the last few pages comparing all the 3 versions.

I just installed the warm sound jumpers on the NFB- 10ES2. The difference is subtle. Has anyone else done this? Can you hear a difference?

Yep, it's a subtle difference.
