I wanted to ask this DAC can only supports asio4ll? I saw the site Audio-Gd that there are drivers, so it works in ASIO? Or only asio4all.. . Sry for my english:)

 

Hi Geoo,

 

It has its own ASIO driver.  But I have tried it out with WASAPI, ASIO4ALL and KS as well.  Works perfect!!!

 

Here is the Foobar output list:

That's good news.  Under Windows XP the TE7022 doesn't support KS, and ASIO4ALL doesn't bypass the windows mixer (meaning it's not bit perfect).  WASAPI though works okay under Windows 7.

Good news indeed Stereodude...My previous shot was of Vistax64

 

Here is my XP Output.  Using KS now..Sounding good indeed...

 

 

 

 

Here is the interface you get with the TE8802:

Has anyone tried this combo with IEMs, any hiss? Or is it more suited for full size cans?


PS: I'm thinking about buying the NFB-15, hence all the silly questions smily_headphones1.gif

See Post #4 & Post #5 of this thread.

Subscribed! Thanks for making this thread, I was recommended the NFB-12 but I noticed that they had just upped to NFB 15 with better USB mode (which is what I'll be using) So now i'm keeping my eyes open for this unit.

 

Also a few questions if you don't mind:

Is this unit powerful/good enough to drive a pair of Q701's by itself? You don't need an additional DAC or AMP to make it sound good?

The sound was described as very neutral, maybe a bit of warmt - which is what I've been told the Q701 really shines with (neutral sound)

 

I like the notion of being able to "plug and play" and that it is a two in one unit for a very good price.

It shouldn't have any problems driving those.  The Q701's are a 62ohm load and are 105dB/1mW efficient.  The NFB-15.1 can put out over 1W into a 62ohm load.  That's >135dB assuming the Q701's drivers don't breakup or compress.

Hi Heatfan,

 

Thank you for having responded to me. I made the order today, I hope it's better than my old DAC pioneer vsx-D514. My desire to use the GD amplifier for my new sennheiser 598. This Dac looking at the specs it seems asynchronous, maybe not to the needs of an upgrade from hiFace two, in your opinion hiFace need? :)

Sorry for my English.

Hello geoo,

Well, I don't have the hi-face but do have other converters. In my opinion, the usb implementation on these devices is very good, so the need for a converter is not necessary.
I have used the NFB-16 as a converter to another dac that the usb was subpar and the results were great.
With the NFB-15.1 & NFB-11.32 no converter necessary. The usb implementation is great as is.

Cheers!!!

If I can advice you, really find some additional money for HD600. The difference between HD598 and HD600 on NFB12/15 is really huge.

Not sure about this, I have feeling, that TE7022 (NFB12.1) works under windows XP for me, with Asio4all. For sure, I have ASIO green icon in task bar everytime I play something on foobar. I also cannot play any other sound in windows, when something sound from foobar... that means, that Asio controls it, and windows mixer is bypassed... right?

I have been using mine for several days now- sounds great with my DT770/600 ohm. It's not quite the NFB-10SE I had but not too far and less than half the price. It drives the DT770's well enough- they are some of the hardest headphones to drive properly I have found. I use a 300 CD changer via optical to this little guy. I cannot hear any differences between filters.

Great to hear Tim.  300 cd changer...Nice!!!

 

I really have not messed with the filters too much myself.  I usually just leave it at the linear phase 'soft-knee' filter which supports up to 192KHz, so don't have to switch when I play different files..

 

Good times!!!

Does the volume slider in the Windows mixer still work when using asio4all with Windows XP?  It did when I tried it.

 

FWIW, I ordered the TE8022 upgrade for my NFB-10SE from Audio-gd along with my NFB-15.1 (no extra shipping charge) after reading the reports of it being more cooperative with XP.
