Audio-GD NFB-11.32 (Delivery & Impression Thread)!!! - Page 80

post #1186 of 1200

First off, I'd think that the 15.32 is a better pair for the Q701 as it has a bit of warmth to it.

 

USB camera adapter??? I'm not sure how that fits in with anything. The iPad has a USB out I assume, and an internal DAC? You ought to be good to go without your camera adaptor.

One can use the USB camera connection kit to connect an iPad to a USB DAC and bypass the iPad DAC and mine the digital signal from the iPad to the DAC. This should work with this DAC...

The iPad has a USB out...that is what the standard cable is that one uses to sync with one's PC.

The issue is the standard 30 pin cable is configured to carry the analog audio signal.

The pins that carry the digital signal are not connected.

The CCK is basically a 30 pin connector configured to carry the digital audio signal.

The pins that carry the digital signal are connected.

Both are USB...

I'll bow out, having not used an iPad. I would have thought it would be easy. Apple users deserve everything they get.

Thanks for participating...most with no knowledge would not have even tried...:D

Sorry baked, that was just plain rude; I was solely trying to help. 

 

If the iPad has a USB connection and a DAC inside it --- you'd assume it would work? I've connected my android phone to my Audio_gd via USB and it worked. Have you got any ideas how to help this guy?

My iPhone 4S on ios 7.04 is working perfectly with my Centrance Hifi-M8 via the CCK (camera connection kit) but I haven't tried it with my Audio GD NFB11.32 yet. I'll give it a go tonight and report back on the result. Hope this will clear up the confusion.

Hi,
Was reading thru your contributions and wanted to thank you already.
Will wait on the result from Francisk then.

Looking forward

Hi DonBozo, here are the results with pictures attached. NFB11.32 downsampled to only 24bit/48kHZ though the original file is a 24bit/96kHZ Flac. Spotify & YouTube plays back without a hitch too, probably at the same resolution. The only draw back of the Audio GD NFB11.32 over my Centrance HiFi-M8 is that the HiFi-M8 can receive in native resolution eg. 24bit/96kHZ or 24bit/192kHZ via Flac Player. Then again the HiFi-M8 is more expensive at $699. Hope this helps :)

 

PS: I don't work for Etymotic, I was merely playing back a YouTube review of the ER4PT (which happens to be one of my favourite IEM) when I snapped the photos :D

Thanks Francisk !

That really hepls.

 

Well your HiFi M8 sounds like a nice competitor here but it's quite double the budget.

Based on your test I'd assume the USB interface (XMOS) of the M8 has better compatibility than the one of the 11.32 based on VT1731.

 

But I know now it is at least working up to 24 bits 48 kHz which might be enough when I use it with the iPad.

I know I could get better with my desktop USB.

 

I'll try when I'll receive mine (currently out of stock until mid / end of March) and will post a short report.

 

Thanks again

I'm glad I can help DonBozo and I know that you won't be disappointed when your NFB11.32 arrive :D

hi

i need a little help with some settings :P

i want to use laptop > NFB-11.32 (as dac and amp) > headphones

is the foobar settings for wasabi and windows sounds right ?

im wondering what to set as default device and default communication device....?

 

post #1199 of 1200

You must download the latest foobar wasapi plugin.

If you do that, you will have 2 options for wasapi (event & push)

Whether you put audio gd as default device or not is not of particular importance

Try the suggestions on:

However, I found that the problems listed in this post (http://www.head-fi.org/t/624517/audio-gd-nfb-11-32-delivery-impression-thread/480#post_9310236) are due to another software using audio GD. In my case, a VOIP software has been using it. I disabled the VOIP software to start with windows startup. Then the problem disappeared.

Are you using USB or Coxial/Optical? Thanks.
