Bul - Looking forward to feedback once it's burned in (or *brained in). Planning on getting one soon.

 

TY Jerg for the info - your building's electrical supply a bit wonky?

I think they burn-in a minimum of 200 hours to try to avoid DOA units I guess with an international shipping set-up and I guess to get the unit sounding good on arrival.

I'm a big fan of the 11.32. To me it sounded great right out of the gate.

 

Here's an article about burn-in. http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2013/11/tnhyui-earphone-burn-in/

 

IMHO tubes changing sound over time of use is a definite, the rest I have no idea but lean towards being a skeptic.

Notice how "burn in" NEVER negatively affects the sound? I've never heard anyone say "I've burned them in 100 hours, and they sound worse".

The ATH m50 I like better new better bass and mids. Then after burn in becomes more neutral in bass and mids

Anyone who doesn't believe in headphone burn-in should buy a pair of these:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/690493/the-jvc-ha-s680-s400s-and-s500s-big-brother-is-here

 

They utilize a carbon nanotube driver - made of material 25 times stronger than steel.

That's why it needs more time to flex the driver.

Their little brother HA-S400 needs even more time, and shows even greater improvement, but doesn't sound as good at the end :(

 

Tyll has done some tests, and he was able to tell the difference between a burned Q701 and a new one, with accuracy up to 86.67%:

Don't think this applies to solid state components though - haven't ever noticed any burn-in effects with any of my DACs or amplifiers.

I didn't see where anyone posted how to tell an USB 2.0 from a 3.0 port. The "ledge" of a 3.0 port..that part that makes it tough to insert wrong is blue. On a 2.0 port the ledge will be grey or white.

 i didn't enjoy any of my songs with the 11.32... i played 3055 by olafur arnalds, like the oppo the 11.32 was lacking on the timing with this song but the 11.32 didn't deliver the impact and emotion of the song... no enjoyment... no fun...  

 

Are you saying that the sound signature of this DAC/amp is very neutral and transparent? If that is the case, do you also dislike the O2 + ODAC? Or do you mean some other way? What headphones did you listen with and would you have a better recommendation at the same price point as the 11.32? Sorry for the flurry of questions :tongue: but I'm seriously considering buying this DAC/amp and your input would be valuable in making a choice.

Sounds like he would prolixly liked the 15.32 instead of the 11.32 since he doesn't like the 11.32 with which ever headphones hes using.  Since it does depends on the headphones and then the person taste.

I couldn't find a headphone that wouldn't sound better out of 11.32 - tried almost my entire collection, except for bottom 3-4.

could someone help?

 

i just purschase an audio GD 17.32 (32bit / 384K Asynchronous Transfer  USB-32 Chip
Built in 2 Pieces Hi-end grade WM8741 Chips) i'm using it with the USB with my comp as a source using various FLAC ( 44 to 192khz, 16 to 24 bit )

after hours dealing to install the drivers, i finally managed to find a port that was identifying it as an audio GD dac.

 

the thing is the envy panel don't show all the sample rates as some users have, it's blocked on 48k / 24bit but the strange thing is it seems to play 24bit/192khz flac quite fine from foobar, does it downsample the flac to 48k like the envy pannel seems to tell? 

 

i tried to install the via directks asio renderer as audio gd installation guide advice but it fails to play anything. 

 

regards
