I can positively state that the 11.32 does an outstanding job with the HE-400s. Changing the pleather pads to the velour pads on the HE-400 makes them much less dark.

http://www.head-fi.org/t/604583/hifiman-he-400-review - right here MattTCG states, that he didn't like audio-gd compass/he-400 bundle. I'm almost sure that compass used same fully discrete ACSS headphone amp, as in their other products. So how can you be so sure, if you haven't tried it yourself?

I can be sure because I have tried it myself....look at my signature.

Has anyone using the USB chip had an issue where the device disappears for a few seconds while using it?

Were you by any chance touching/moving USB cable while that happened?

 

If yes - try different USB cable.

Try running Currawong's version

 

If your running a PC, you can probably get away with right clicking and installing the driver .inf - right click - select install on the inf appropriate to your OS, and doing a reboot once it installs, should detect the device on reboot. 

 

Found here : http://www.audio-gd.com/Audio-gdUSB32forwindows.rar

 

In the following directory once extracted.

 Audio-gdUSB32forwindows\Audio-gdUSB32forwindows\viaudusb\Driver


Tonite,I was able to extract and run your file....It installed something called:"Audio-gd USB Audio Control Panel".......It gives me a choice of 16bit or 24bit.......Under ASIO Driver Status it says "Non-Active"-stop.......I'm wondering if this is a download for the panel,not the driver........Windows still says "Unknown USB Device".......The 11.32 is on and I've tried 6 different usb cables.......Things improved when I went from Internet Ex-8 back to 7.......With I E-7,Currawong's file no longer said "Forbidden",but i still couldn't extract setup.exe from his file'

 

Next,I may go with kingwa's suggestion to reseat the chip or change it for the volume one......Thanks,Peter

Your succeed install driver must had  wrong, it is the TE8802 driver.

Can you try to  download the driver V1.0 on another computer  and upzip, store in a external flash then push into your computer for install?

The Compass didn't use ACSS circuits, which aren't used to drive headphones anyway, but are a gain stage prior to the circuits that drive the headphones. smile.gif

Hi Kingwa,I finally was able to extract the SETUP.EXE file.I ran a malwarebytes scan and it found a virus or malware named:"PUP.ADBUNDLE".This was in the Downloads.set,exe file.I delete the malware and the set,exe file extracted,but when I went to windows installer,it said:One component did not install(11.32 is on and usb cable is installed.

 

It still says "Unknown device" when I plug in Usb to the 11.32.Tomorrow,I'm going to open it up and put in the volume chip and I'll also check to see if the original chip was seated correctly.......peter

By free interpretation of his words:

 

It contains USB firmware that allows users to change output volume in installed driver software or OS control panel. With original (pre-installed) USB input firmware chip the output volume in driver software and/or OS was fixed to 100% and non changeable.

 

Be warned that if you install firmware chip incorrectly - you will break your NFB-11.32!

 

(That most probably means that you can "turn chip around" and push it wrong way in it's socket by not taking care where pin 1 of the chip should reside. So be careful - take note of the orientation of pre-installed firmware chip before pulling it off and be sure you installed new firmware chip in the same orientation.)


Am I correct that the top of the chip is the part with the indentation in the white border?......thanks,peter

Ok, NFB 11.32 is on the way to me. Later, I will write some impressions.

Ditto.

Does anyone know anything about how NFB 11.32 stacks up against Matrix Mini-i? I hesitated between two but decided to go with NFB 11.32
