Audio-GD NFB-15.32 Delivery & Impression Thread - Page 4

post #46 of 339

By using the Razer surround software since it lets you select a device to send it to, the usb input of the NFB 15.32 will show up as a option if you mean in games. If you mean movie's then I don't and just uses the USB input directly by it self, since the Usb transfer chip handles blu ray audio without it being down-mixed.

Dumb question.

I guess the Razor software can convert the 6 or 8 channels of gaming audio into 2-channels of Headphone surround sound.

 

A Blu-ray movie can have 6 or 8 audio channels, but your headphones are only 2-channel input.

How are you getting all the audio from the Blu-ray.

I would have assumed that you would only get the front speaker, left and right channels?

Guess you can send all 6 or 8 channels of audio thru USB, but then what happens?

The 15.32 has no surround sound processing (that I know of).

I worded it wrong, I meant that I getting the  blu ray DTS-HD 24bit/96(192khz) instead of the down-mixed 16bit/48khz track. I didn't mean surround sound processing. I mention the razer software because i thought you meant in games.

The Audio-GD 15.32  is not much more expensive than the Essence STX. What Audio-GD model above the 15.32 represents a significant step up in SQ or is the 15.32 that good?

The NFB-11.32 is though to be a little more detailed, where as the 15.32 has more warmth.

I just finished ordering the 15.32 (with TCXO upgrade) about 10 minutes ago, I'm assuming it will ship out no later then Monday.

 

I'll test the 15.32 against my Essence STX (AD797BR) and O2 (Objective 2).

Assuming after finished testing I'll sell off the Essence STX and O2.

I have a used Xonar DX sitting around somewhere that I will hook up optically to the 15.32, for gaming and movies,

but switch over to USB for music.

Hope it sounds great Purple - looking forward to your feedback, especially coming from someone who has used an STX previously.

Looking forward to the comparison. I'm thinking about getting the 15.32 for my mad dogs

Hi,

 

I put in the TCXO upgrade recently in the 15.32, it made it a little smoother, bass is certainly deeper and punchier and its a bit more transparent revealing a little more detail. A good upgrade. It needs at least 100 hours burn in though.

 

Cheers

 

Steve.

So the TCXO just slot in like a op-amp?

My Audio-GD NFB-15.32 arrived about 4 hours ago.

Ordered last Friday, shipped Sunday night (from Hong Kong), arrived Thursday (California) 12:30 PM, I'm surprised it arrived that fast.

It's at least as good sounding as my Essence STX (AD797BR), and there is zero background noise.

The 15.32's 2-Ohm impedance might have slightly improved the audio quality of my 32-Ohm AKG K550s

Anyone notice if the 15.32 improves with break in?

post #57 of 339

Hi,

 

I have put about 100 hours on mine, and the sound does improve with break in - smoother, more open and detail become better. The bass also become a bit fuller too. I added  the TCXO chip to mine and that adds a little more transparency and smoother too.

 

Cheers

 

Steve.

Yea it does improve with break in, I don't remember how long it took for me. Also with my headphones at-least  i notice the difference between the different digital filter settings.

Guess it's a good thing I ordered my 15.32 with the TCXO installed.

Purple - clearly you're burning in your new Audio-GD before posting up your impressions. How long to do think before we can see them (guessing end of next week)?

 

Personally I'm looking at the 11.32's, as I'm hoping to get a set of neutral and a bit bassy headphones and others here have recommended the combo.
