HE-500 is quite good through NFB-11. Better through SA-31, but NFB-11 is excellent starting point. Take upgraded clocks. At least ES9018 one.

Don't know about FIIO, but no way NFB-11 is warm (at least at standard bias voltages fixed in NFB-11 output stages).

Just my opinion, of course...

can anyone tell me if i have to download drivers to use spdif with my pc and the 11:32

 

usb drivers is a joke IMHO, 

 

My bifrost was up and running in under 10 minutes, checked the drivers on the web site and there are like 6 different drivers and they all depend on original ship date,  you would think if you were to set up your drivers like this you would indicate the date on the amp

 

I guess I am asking to much

 

also is windows 7 an issue with this amp, last does this work with Itunes / wmp etc...

 

before someone brings it up YES I EMAILED Audio Gd and of course no response

I use this USB-to-SPDIF/Coax converter with 11.32:

 

http://www.hifiwow.com/dac-da-converter/latest-cm6631a-24bit-192khz-nonsyschronous-usb-to-coaxial-optical-converter-for-dac-asio-50.html

 

Works flawlessly (need to install the cm6631a drivers) and isolates from the PC noise.

SPDIF is limited to 96Khz, Coax does 192Khz.

I'm done with the USB as of now and will try S/PDIF

 

I've had problems getting the USB to work with my NFB-15.32, but optical works fine for me.

Anyone here directly compare a NFB-11.32 to a NFB-15.32?

I'm tempted at selling off my NFB-15.32 for one of the new NFB-11s.

hope the NEW 11 has addressed the software, an 11 is my problem child....................I am using Spdif via the converter with no issues optical may be an option in the future but my current pc does not offer optical

 

If I were looking into an 11 I would certainly inquire about the software support before I spent money and waited on it,  Mine was used and at a very good price so I figured what the hell. (Then I tried the software:mad:)

 

It is a good thing the design offers quality sound otherwise I fear there support software etc... would put them out of business

The 11.32 and 15.32 are similar except for the 11.32 being 32bit/384khz since it uses the sabre dac and it sound signature suppose to be neutral. I know some one who has the 11.32 and uses it with his DT990 pro-250 and he said it was neutral to him and he liked the combo very much.  If your not happy with the 15.32 then theres no reason to keep it, I found the 15.32 to be too warm for my T90 for me, That and I re-config my setup.

I just received my NFB-11 (2014) which shipped on 26th May. I hook it up to my PC via USB and there is a problem that is the sound suddenly disappear half way watching YouTube videos. I have the same problem when playing games with no sound out of a sudden. When using foobar, it started to play properly and freezes half way, but when you press play again, it will play from the beginning of the song. I also notice one thing that is there will be an annoying thock sound just before any sound is produced from foobar music or YouTube videos. Could it be firmware problem? Or I missing out something? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :biggrin:

easy way to cheeck if it is software / firmware related is to try and hook up using Spdif.......................That said I would bet it is Software / Firmware related, I got fed up with the substandard software / firmware and bought a usb / spdif converter which solved the issue...............However it truely sucks to have a component that is supplied with usb that is frankly the worst implamintation I have seen on any product to date

 

The sound of the DAC is good, and build quality seems good as well.....................They just need help with the software, and support

post #1259 of 2355

They might do a better job if they switch on over to xmos or Cmedia 6631A usb chip, they could be a way to actually do it while keeping the same firmware pin layouts.

If Foobar2000 stops playing an audio files, I would assume it's more of a Foobar2000/windows issue and not the NFB-11.

 

I bought my NFB-15.32 back in early Nov. and tried the firmware upgrade not long after, but I only got the USB working a few days ago.
