I got mine delivered to a friend in China who brought it over, so the dates won't be comparable (ordered on 30th Dec)

Sabre ES9018 has ASRC (Asynchronous Sample Rate Converter), so it should keep jitter very low.
I'm currently running windows build 14393.576 this means that the rollout of usb audio for windows is happening. Can anyone verify is all the driver problems are behind us if using windows 10 ;-)?
No, 14393 is behind 14931. It's not in the general release yet.
14931 is part of the insiders program.
So we'll get it eventually.
whoops my bad. Had the numbers confused.
Thanx fot the quick reply
Yeah guys! I did it! I ordered an nfb-11 at an local dealer here in the Netherlands.
This is my first dac/headphone amp. I currently own a +/-12 year dt990 headphone and i'm gonna see what the nfb-11 is gonna handle this hf. I'm also looking at some new headphones because i'm kinda curious. I'm hoping you guys can help me a bit in this quest of pairing the right headphone with the nfb-11. I hope this is the right thread though. This is not the first post in this thread where pairing headphones are discussed so I have good hope . What am I looking for in a headphone? It has to be open/semi open and the price should be max 250-300€.
Currently my list of option consists of the:
-sennheiser hd600 - can get is pretty cheap because of an young used one. +/-€200,-
-Fostex t50 - €149,- plus €50 ear-pads so €200 headphone
-Monoprice m560 - a guy is another tread advised this. 200usd don't know how I'll get this because of the absense of dealers in my country. interesting hf not the best reviews.
-perhaps the sennheiser hd650 - good reviews on this site but not the best pairing with the nfb-11 according to some previous posts in this thread. maxes out the budget at €300.
-perhaps the philips fidelio x2 - not at the top of my list but easy attainable for me at a €222,- price.
so guys, What do you think of this list pairing with the nfb-11? are there more options i should look into or are there options that i should certainly drop?
I bought new windows laptop on this x-mas time and Audio-gdUSB32driverversion2 doesn't want to install themself corectly :(
Seems after windows system update "anniversarie 1607" for 64bit CPU , Audio GD's driver application doesn't work.
I mean clicking "SETUP.EXE" does his job but not enough & PC recongize this NFB11 but nothing appeared on "sound configuration panel" :(
I tried different ways & got successed.
I open control panel and choose "device control" & go to "audio device" for "Audio GD" and click top menu to update driver to the recent one.
Windows asks to choose driver folder , so in windows folders, I choose "Audio-gdUSB32driverversion2" > viaudusb > Driver > "Vista64"
And click nd let windows find and install this 64bit plat form driver & it works.
ATTENTION : If just choosing the folder "Audio-gdUSB32driverversion2", it will not work !!!
