In the archive downloaded from audio-gd pages, you will find all files (included the firmware and firmware update tool) and 3 documents with all instructions:

1_Read me at first

2_Firmware update  guide

3_Driver2014 install guide

Did you download the driver from the following link?

 

http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/USB32/USB32EN.htm

 

You can download the  "Download the USB32 driver 2014"

 

All the information to install the firmware are in the documents, just take your time to read them and while the firmware is updating DON'T turn your computer off, DON'T turn the NFB-11.32 off or switch either off and DON'T Pull the usb cable.

 

There's a video included so you can see an example of how it's done.

I am following the instructions from the 'For the products shipping since 14th May. 2013 .' links. Nothing I downloaded contains those 3 files, a direct link would be appreciated, or any link to 'firmware'. A google search for 'audio gd firmware' leads back to the page already repeatedly mentioned which doesn't even have the word 'firmware' on it and also this forum.

No because it is second hand and slightly older. I have the previous drivers.

 

I don't need information to install firmware, I need the firmware if it is something different than the enclosed drivers in the .rar.

post #199 of 618

Right, I have now found the firmware archive myself after sifting through the 'Audio-gd Digital Interface' thread.

 

Next problem; which firmware do I need and how to install it. I get the impression its #7 from some posts in that thread, but I am unsure so I tried the 'firmware upgrade tool' which doesn't even detect the device under the 'usb devices' drop down box. The saga continues. Any help appreciated. Or better yet a step by step guide on how to getting one of these devices to work. I am amazed I haven't came across one. Maybe I should've just got an ODAC and avoided this complete nightmare.

 

Oh forgot to add, even if I want to try the #7 firmware its just a file, no instructions what to do with and windows doesn't know either.

My NFB-1.32 is from October 2012 and I flashed it with the newest firmware and installed the newest drivers.   Let me explain, when it refers to date, it means the driver is compatible with the firmware that your NFB-11.32 had when it was shipped. If you flash it, it doesn't matter  what date your product is, because those drivers are compatible with the version of the firmware that came in the .rar.

 

Though if you want the drivers for your specific firmware you're going to have to mail Kingwa to ask.

Great. But I still get the same message from the newer installer and don't know how to 'Flash with the newest firmware'

 

'SETUP LOG:  DATE 2-12-2014 TIME 22:36:42

Also I have no idea what you mean by that last statement.

Everything is explained in the word documents as I told you before, actually you don't even have to think xp.

post #203 of 618

Can anyone say EXACTLY what power lead I should have for NFB 11.32? I think I may have found the root cause of my problems as I had to buy both the leads as the seller didn't provide.

 

The lead I have has '13A 250V' on the plug and '10A 250V' on the connecting end, is that incorrect?

post #204 of 618

itsmeQ, I really don't think the power cord is your issue. How ever it should be fine.

 

I got my 2014 f/w chips today :) See if I get time tonight to install them.

post #205 of 618

 

Thank you guys for all the info provided. It seems to be just about right time to flash my Reference 10.32 with the latest firmware and install the new 2014V2 USB drivers. I am very curious what change in sound this upgrade will bring. 

post #206 of 618

I installed the 2014 firmware/driver and I no longer have the 32 bit option, only the choice between 16 and 24 bit. Is this normal? I've always had it set to 32 bit in the previous version.

post #207 of 618

I think I had 32 bit with those drivers I'll have to check. I have a NFB-1.32 and wit the new drivers and firmware I get a much brighter presentation, has anyone had this experience?

I think you might be right. Regardless it isn't showing the blue led on the front, so I guess it needs fixing at audio-gd.

post #209 of 618

I have the impression that you got the 10.32 not much ago, did they sell it to you in those conditions, if not, anything you remember doing before that happened?

post #210 of 618

I have made an upgrade of FW and drivers of myRef 10.32 yesterday. It was a piece of cake (Windows XP machine).

In foobar 1.2.9 I have all bit options listed - 8 16 24 32

No problems at all. 

Sound wise I still prefer SPDIF input via modded HiFace as it sounds more warm/analogue like,

but in comparison with fw #3 I had before this newest fw sounds via USB much more balanced, no harsh trebles

and very detailed. Still need to check it out with ASIO drivers.
