Audio-GD NFB-11.32 & NFB-11 (2014) (Delivery & Impression Thread)!!! - Page 152

What are the real changes (sound wise) between the 11 (2014) and the 11.32?

There are no differences in terms of sound quality. The NFB-11 (2014) introduced the following changes:

 

1) New chassis with vents on top

2) Transformer upgrade from 20w to 35w

3) Mute switch on the back that disables the mute relay feature, which was causing a lot of popping and other annoyances in between tracks.

 

There may be some other minor differences I'm not aware of, but those are the main ones at least. That third one is probably the most important. I believe some of the later 11.32 models actually came with the 35w transformer upgrade.

Basically Audio-GD told me to use the vista64 drivers. Go to device manager shoose the Audio-GD device and point to this folder during install.

 

Audio-gdUSB32driverversion>viaudusb>driver>Vista64

 

That worked for me. I hope it fixes your issue too.

I have an older NFB-12 that I've been using for the last couple years with my DT-990's and I've been pretty happy with it (here's the link to the classified listing from when I bought it here).  I got in on the massdrop HD6XX drop, and will probably be looking to upgrade my DAC/AMP when I get them.  Would the latest nfb-11 be a noticeable upgrade over my old NFB-12, or should I look elsewhere (How does NFB-11 compare to Schiit Jotunheim)?

Guess the NFB-12, with it's dual WM8741 DAC chips, might be considered a little more musical and the NFB-11 with it's Sabre DAC chip, a little more detailed.

Your older NFB has a well used 20 W transformer, while a new NFB-11 would come with a brand new 35W transformer.

 

A Darkvoice 336SE tube headphone amplifier ($213-$250) could be daisy chained off your NFB-12.

Also interested in comparisons between the NFB-11.32 vs the Jot.
