Unfortunately i don't understand Japanese and Google translator seems so confusing , so i haven't been able to get a conclusion.

Is there any downside to setting the 11.32 down so that it is vertical rather than laid flat? I'd like it to dissipate its heat better but do not know if orientating it differently messes with anything.

Remember - "heat rises" - so it's better stay horizontal.

Would a simple toslink to 3.5" be enough to keep the audio chain quality great or do you need to buy audiophile grade optical cables for this DAC/Amp ? I could hook this into my netbook via my Sabre DAC digital output as some people were kind of saying the detail is better through the optical input interface vs USB to USB ?

Just get one from monoprice you dont need to go crazy with the toslink cables.

there shouldn't be any problems as there is no mechanical part in it and it is not like it was designed this way with cooling in mind(other than the fact that the body itself is a heatsink, sort of)... you should be fine although it is pretty thin so take care that it does not get knocked down too much...

Yeah, I think I was just overthinking it; I never actually owned a powerful class A amplifier before, so the amount of heat this is exerting took me by surprise.

 

The fact that it is very hot to touch just means that the aluminum chassis is doing what it's meant to do - radiating the heat out as much as it can.

Powerful yes, class A no

But...

 

" The NFB-11.32 built in high biase current amps , for most headphones at normal listen volume it is working at class A state"

Maybe not on headphones like HE500?

I've tried HE-500 with my NFB-11, and it was perfectly fine on high gain.
