Audio-GD NFB-11.32 & NFB-11 (2014) (Delivery & Impression Thread)!!! - Page 30

Overheating is a minor thing.
AG11.32 sounds awesome.
I can not imagine the sound of Audio-GD more expensive products, but I hope to find out soon!

That's I was saying, when up-grade-its hits, the Compass 2 or more?

More.

Hi guys, my 11.32 arrived and although I haven't had a full chance to experiment with it, I'm loving it so far :) This is my first usb amp/dac and was wondering if you could point me in the right direction.

 

What output should I be using with my audio player? DS, WASAPI or ASIO? All my files are either MP3s or FLAC 44.1kHz. 

 

I really haven't a clue where to start with the settings on my player so I would appreciate any assistance.Thanks so much :)

Definitely not DS as it is not for bit perfect streaming.

 

Both WASAPI or ASIO (and KS) are designed to attempt bit-exact streaming.  I would suggest you start with Wasapi as it is usually the easiest to implement. 

 

If you are getting any performance issues (drop-outs or clicks/pops) with Wasapi you typically only need to adjust your output buffer settings (to a higher value) to solve those issues.

Great thank you so much for the help :)

 

I have it set on WASAPI now and I'm finding it funny to deal with because other audio (such as Skype) can't play while I'm listening to music through my player, so I am unaware if I am receiving a call. Are there ways around this? 

 

Thanks again!

post #442 of 1438

I'm sure someone will help with the Skype issue but I use Windows and have all other sounds turned off.

 

Careful though on your implementation....as other software programs may blast high-volume sound into your headphones when you are listening to music.

Definetly use native ASIO driver support for USB32, which is ASIO - Via Direct KS. It's best.

My 11.32 was shipped with firmware #4. 

 

I just installed firmware #3 and installed the V1.1 driver to hear the difference against firmware #4.  I'm not sure why NF11.32 is recognized as "SPDIF Out".  Is this normal?  I'm using Windows 8 Professional 64 bit.

Anybody interested, who uses the nfb via usb, who wants to try if this equalizer works for all windows applications (including youtube)? http://www.head-fi.org/t/649389/a-free-parametric-equalizer-for-windows-vista-7-and-8-that-doesnt-need-asio-or-vst-it-works-inline-at-the-os-level

This could be the solution who use a notebook or netbook, that don't have a digital audio output.

Anyone have experience using this with ps3 via toslink? I really want one of these but if it doesnt work with ps3 thats a deal breaker...
post #447 of 1438

No PS3 here also, but the optical input worked fine on 4 different Audio-gd units I had (or have)

Sorry to say that, but that's a stupid question. Nevertheless, for the sake of writing correct information, I use my audio gd dac with the ps3, obviously connected via optical cable.

I posted here a while ago because my nfb was skipping, it no longer does that. Now, my computer constantly fails to recognize the usb unit itself... I don't know if I need to change my firmware or drivers or what, but it is becoming very frustrating. I have tried the latest drivers, but they always fail to install (I think I have 1.0 drivers or 1.1 at the moment). I think I have firmware #3, But I don't know. I can post some pictures if you guys want.
