post #976 of 1363

Got mine yesterday... at first it sounded cheap...:D today it sounds different...:wink: i don't believe in burn-in but i believe in run-in, so 300 hours of run-in will be more than enough for a true test...

Don't A-gd burn-in/run-in all their units before shipping as most of their customers are international ?

Interested in your opinion of the 11.32 Johhnyhi.......supposed to be a detail monster, but the reason I looked at 15.32 is I wanted warm edges on a solid state A-gd and think the Wolfsons will be just the ticket with a pair of HifiMan-400's....also the filters are quite interesting and I wonder if they can take the edge off the treble spikes on the 400's at the hardware filter end of things...... I guess the 11.32 and 15.32 could take on the Burson Soloist SL and there is quite a price difference on the two units and their watt output is around the same.

Anyone know how A-gd 11.32 or 15.32 stack up against the Soloist SL ?

I had found the filters of Audio gd Wolfson dacs to be almost indistinguisable.
The amp part of NFB-15 or NFB-11 is significantly below in quality to the bigger Audio gd amps, so I do not expect it to compete with the Soloist.

Did you guys manage to find a fix or solution for the usb sound drop.?  

 

no matter what i use it drops the sound, playing on foobar it stops for about 1 second and then comes back...  that's using asio4all...KS is worst...  "no is not the buffer thing"

 

youtube video stops too...  when this happens i have to refresh the page and then it comes back... but it doesn't last... some times it last for 40 seconds or even a minute, then it drops... in some cases it lasts 2 or 3 seconds....:mad::angry_face::normal_smile :  "no is not foobar using asio"

 

no matter what i use, whether it is  DS, ASIO, KS,WASAPI... the sound will drop... Asio4all drops for a second but it comes back and the music keeps on playing... sometimes this happens 2 to 3 times in one track.... sometimes it doesn't happen  and i'm able to play a full album or 3 4 5 6 just fine.....  "Windows 8 machine":wink_face:

  

edit: 

KS seems to work just fine now... still the youtube problem persist... gonna see if i can fix that...

Hi,

The Audio gd 15.32 are very good sonically for its price, I compared it to a rega apollo-r , it was more open, dynamic and detailed, yet very musical - a touch of warmth in the mids.

Cheers

Steve.

Much better than Cambridge dacmagic

Hey guys,

Is this 11.32 good enough for LCD2?

Yes.

Just listening to Thinkpad W520; Win 8 x64; Foobar2000 1.2.9 WASAPI (event) -> NFB 11.32 -> Norse Audio Skuld (8x3) cable -> LCD-2 (v1)... Awesome.

The detailed NFB-11.32's presentation makes me forget LCD-2's lack of "sparkle" or "air". Just be sure to have latest USB-32 firmware on it (9-3 on mine).

Thanks much, from what i've read i think ES series are better for those LCDs than Wolfson series biggrin.gif

It sounds very nice on my K702 65th, I can't imagine the Q701 sounding bad on it.

received my NFB11.32 just 4days after payment.

NFB11.32 is quite hot after 30min of use.

it can't put on finger on top of the casing for more than 10sec

Nothing wrong with that, comes in handy for this coming winter, a dac/amp that warms your hands while listening to some tunes... genius...
