Nope. I'm back to the 2x oversampling Linear phase softknee filter for the T1's.

post #1967 of 2247

Looks like you are having fun biggrin.gif

post #1968 of 2247

I sure am. The T1's really work well with this amp/dac.

post #1969 of 2247

I have never heard oversampling before. What does it sound like guys?

 

I think I'll be getting mine tomorrow or the day after! gs1000.gif

It's an algorithm they use to smooth out the waveform that the Dac puts out. And the filter part is a low pass filter that is used to cut out digital noise.

 

In practice the higher the oversampling rate the better but in reality I just trust my ears. With the 650's I find the 8x oversampling to be best. But with the T1's I'm liking only 2x oversampling.

I guess I'll leave it to my ears. I wasn't asking on what OverSampling does as.....it's common knowledge but more of what it sounds like. Anyway, I'll wait for tommorrow then!

It's hard to describe in words. Each setting sounds a little different. Some are more lean sounding some are more meaty. Some have more bass and some have more highs. So really it's up to your ears to see which is best for your tastes.

Thank you! I'll test them out and make a record of which settings sound good with each headphone.

 

Now using the NFB with you HD 545...how far up is the volume knob for a good enough volume?

post #1974 of 2247

About a quarter (9 o'clock) is good for me on high gain with the HD-545's. I'm at about about 11 o'clock with the T1's.

Wow, that's a lot of power! I can't wait!

post #1976 of 2247

Oh yeah. This thing has plenty of power.

post #1977 of 2247

Hmmm, 

 

Whats this, The nfb 15???:

 

http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB15/NFB15EN.htm

 

 

It's got Asynchronous usb and is meant to be an upgrade from the nfb12.1

I think it uses the same enclosure too.... 

 

 

 

I can't find a thread on it yet or maybe I haven't searched hard enough.

The two are very similar if not near identical in specs and look. However Audio Gd ranks them in order of lower number=better so I guess we are still in the clear for the v12.1

post #1979 of 2247

Not really- It says on that page that it's an improvement over the nfb 12.

 

At a higher price, using asynchronous usb transfer and other stuff, it has to be an improvement.

 

Someone perhaps should start a new thread about them. I'm not, as I probably won't be purchasing it any time soon (especially as they seem to always all the time use the initial customers as trial runs. I jumped ship on the nfb12 when it didn't have the selectable jumpers. It's sound- no better than the measly e7/e9- I actually thought mike from headfonia gave this nfb12 a soft review)

post #1980 of 2247

Shows how different we hear.  I came from the E7/E9 originally, and much prefer the NFB-12.  E7/E9 "thin sounding" in comparison.  My version was with the jumpers - but without the switches.  I am using one of the 4x filters.  Personally thought Mike's "review" was thrown together.  He didn't even take the time to play around with the jumper settings.
