I, and many of my Head-fi meet friends have noticed how good my DT880-600's sound with this DAC. Very 'acoustic' with a slight warmth.

 

This Dac/Amp impressed me with many of the Beyerdynamic headphones. I've listened to DT880's 600ohm, T1's, as well as these DT 770 250ohm headphones and all sounded nice with this amp. So far though the DT 770 250ohm being my favorite match.

Hey guys. Just got a NFB-12 and was wondering if anyone had issues setting the NFB-12 to 24bit via Windows? It shows it as an option but when I set it and hit playback I get an error message saying that the test track couldn't be played.

Setup is : laptop (Windows 8.1 Pro) >> 7 port usb hub (self-powered) >> NFB-12 >> DT880/600ohm.

I haven't had the chance to pop the top off to check the filter settings yet but reading the manual on the Audio-GD site, filters seem to effect only freq range. Thanks.

You might have more luck asking here as it basically covers all the Audio_gd's: http://www.head-fi.org/t/638252/audio-gd-usb-32-firmware-drivers-and-feedback-thread/180#post_10229578

I think that the NFB-12 uses a Tenor usb chip, and not the usb-32

Thanks for the suggestion, but I solved it. Turns out that using a different usb port fixed it. I don't know if I need to keep that slot empty or what. I'll continue to test it out. smily_headphones1.gif

I would go with the NFB-5.2, which is a better and more flexible unit from the rest

If you use the usb input, the NFB-12 is clearly below of all other options

I wouldn't discount the nfb-12 though. It's a decent amp/dac.

post #2244 of 2247

More than decent, it's excellent

post #2245 of 2247

I agree. I've had mine for about three years now. And I never felt like I ever needed to make a change. And its well made. I've had mine turned on day and night for all this time and no problems whatsoever.

It is excellent, and an amazing match for certain headphones. (DT880...)

Yep - this ^^

 

Also the HD600 shines with it.
