(I don't have an NFB-10.32, but the older NFB-10WM with USB-32 upgrade)

        For who install the USB-32 driver but the panel have not 192K sampling option, this is because the computer have applied the other VIA chipset in the built in sound card and the Windows have confuse the drivers . This method to disabled built in sound card for fix the problems :

 

1, Power off the DAC , While power on the computer, push and hold on the “Del” key until enter the BIOS setting menu . ( different computer may have different key to enter the BIOS ) .

 

2, Find the option “ Advanced chipset Features “ , you can see the “AC’97 Audio” option . ( The different computer may have different name on the option . Some computer may have the “Advanced “ , “I/O Device Configuration” , “Integrated Peripheral Setup” or “ Onboard AC97 Audio”)

 

3, Push the PageDown or PageUp key change the “ Enable” to “ Disabled” , Save and quit . (Different computer may have different key to select the setting, and mark on the menu .)

 

4, Uninstall and Reinstall the USB32 driver again if necessary .

I just put an order through for the 11.32 unit (with the BCN and TCXO clock and USB upgrade) and am very much looking forward to giving it a run through my DT880s.

So far I've been running through a FiiO E17, which, while far from sounding bad, probably hasn't been making the most of the headphones.  I intend to use the amp with Ubuntu 12.04 - which I understand has SOME issues with getting bit-perfect audio out of, but can be reasonably easily addressed with ALSA and a few changes to the configs. 

 

I am hoping not to have too many driver issues as have been run through in this thread - if anybody has had any experience with Ubuntu implementation I would be glad to hear of any compatibility issues.

Very much looking forward to a first listen!

So I'm currently shopping around for a solid DAC and I've narrowed it down to the following choices, NFB 3.33, Peachtree DAC-ITx, Bifrost, NFB11.32 (as a DAC only).  How does the 11.32 compare as a DAC to the other 3?  I plan to match this with my Asgard 2 (once it ships).

Just used mine yesterday for 3 hours straight.......resting on a glass table. It felt warm to the touch but I could keep my hand on it. The longest I did was about 3-4 seconds but I have the feeling I could have kept it on much longer.

Mine gets hot, but not unbearably so.

You should be fine unless its burning a hole into the desk which it is on.  My NFB15.32 also gets hot after awhile of use.

Mine also gets pretty hot, about the same as the Schiit Magni, nothing that would burn my hand like a tube amp or anything

I have used the 11.32 with Ubuntu 12.10 & 13.04 (Rhythmbox) with no problems whatsoever (dual boot 12.10 with W7 & 13.04 with Vista).  I love Ubuntu, but when it comes to using my library off my network it's very slow, so I just keep various albums on the computer locally and change them periodically.

 

Cheers!
