Strange, it only shows 24bit and 192khz in the Via Audio Panel !!?

I just received my Audio-gd 11.32. I'm using it with a MacBook Pro. I realize that in order to update the firmware, I need a Windows PC. Does anyone know if there's a way to find out what the installed Audio-gd 11.32 firmware version is, using my Mac? I'd hate to go tracking down a Windows machine and find out it was all for naught, since my 11.32 may already be up to date. If there is a thread already covering this, that someone can direct me to, I'd appreciate it.

I you ordered it after May 26th, it should have the latest firmware installed.

Thank you, I guess I have a reprieve until the next one!

Been using the newest model (post may 26th)

Great neutral+transparent sound, but the USB driver is buggy as hell :D 

Recommend using Coax/optical if you're interested

Maybe they should scrap VIA usb32 all together and give C-Media or even Xmos a shot. At least it should be possible for them to make a firmware swap with a different usb chip.

What are the symptoms of a buggy USB driver?

Using USB input for NFB-11 was a headache from the start. Biggest issue's the hiccups and stuttering in the sound fairly frequently. I think the fastest fix is just switching sample and bit ratio to something else and putting it back to 24bit/192

 

Also the whole unit stops working after 1-2day of use lol, have to disable/enable in control unit + reboot the power switch.

I guess I'll count my blessings. I've been using mine for a few days now and have nothing but praise for the SQ and function.

Oh sound is definitely amazing. I've been using them with HE-560 for the entire weekend and I wouldn't have taken them off at a gunpoint biggrin.gif
Made my portable setup(shure 535se) sound worse than ipod earphones lol

Awww man.  This product was at the top of my list, but I will be using it via usb and I don't want to run into any issues so I might have to re-evaluate my list again.

Not worth buying gear that you constantly have to mess with to make it work properly, IMO After a while you end up not using it because it frustrates you and this hobby is about pleasure and not pain! Customers should expect gear that works flawlessly from a supplier, we aren't, or shouldn't be, their R&D department. Personally, I don't care how good it sounds, if it doesn't work flawlessly, I will send it back and find a piece of gear that does work without hiccups. Just my 2c.
