with a nvidia based computer/laptop go to nvidia control panel--> 3d settings--> performance change from adaptive to maximum preference

 

then change the buffer a bit more in your music player to see if it could solve the trouble?

also can you check the internal jumper they are correctly set ?

 

I want to tell you guy's that i use Macbook pro 2014 Retnia and Coustm PC it's same thing i hear the click sound, And the player media is Foobar2000, jRiver 20 and Audirvana Plus for OS X.

Also i try DSD,192,96,44.176 same thing 

 

BTW what is mean can you check the internal jumper they are correctly set ?

 

So i have retrun the NFB-28 yestrday to Kingwa and he well chack my NFB-28 its on way to Kingwa

If you set the jumper incorrectly, you can get some odd sound.

I didn't unstall not yet

It should be very good for the price, but don't expect a Master-9 for $450.

Both of then are based on, they are not half of their more expensive counterparts, they are simplified versions.

Regarding the NFB-29's Specs, I am finding the provided information rather confusing. The item page actually states that its power output is identical to the NFB-28. But how can that be, given the fact that the NFB-29 is single ended and the published ratings are supposedly for the Balanced Out? Surely that cannot be right? Can anyone shed some light into this?

Because the NFB29 had double times voltage power supply (+/- 30V DC) than the NFB28 ( +/-15VDC), so the power output can arrive the same level.

Thank you Qinghua. Good to know. May I suggest that you edit the info regarding the Output Specs? It is a bit confusing at the moment. rolleyes.gif

Thanks your suggest, we had correct the web page and add a little more inform in the subject  "Different to the NFB-28 ".

Anyone paired this audio gd with beyerdynamic dt 880?

 

I have now aune t1 which is pretty cheap and i'm looking for something better. And i think that nfb 10es3 should be good (the same as nfb 28 without inputs...). My headphones are unbalanced but i can recable them to balanced :)

post #609 of 1774

If you're willing to recable them - then I say go for it! The smooth sound and clean power should be a great pairing with the Beyers. I still haven't tried my LCD-2.2F's balanced - need to build the cable - I'm told things get even better than what I'm hearing now... hmmm.

I'm interested in how much better it sounds then nfb 11.32 (i could buy it for 250$)...?

 

So i will try nfb 28 - if everything goes good i will borrow it from shop in Poland :) But i'm interesting that tube amp can be better for dt 880 :)

post #611 of 1774

Ohh and i have also sennheisers hd 580 - it can play nice with this audio gd, but i don't like them very well. 

 

But it won't any problem to play with akg k551? their impedance is only 32 ohms...

post #612 of 1774

If you like the sound of tubes, you won't get that from Kingwa's ESS9018 gear. If you don't want to recable, the NFB-11 should be extremely similar to the SE output of the NFB-28. Perhaps the 10.33 or NFB-15 could provide a sound for you that's warmer than tubes but more clean like most SS gear.

 

And there shouldn't be any problems with the K551's. I only hear noise on very sensitive gear, and the output impedance is low enough to provide enough damping for anything I know of.

 

I'd audition if you can, and if you don't need the inputs of the NFB-28, go for his cheaper gear IMHO. They all have a similar sound and good power.

post #613 of 1774

I will try nfb 28 or 10es3 and decide :)

post #614 of 1774

Anyone knows how big difference is between 10es2 and 10es3? 

 

What means "upgraded to 4 groups digital inputs"? 

 

It will be any sounds difference? And maybe occ wires inside?  Anyone compared?

I have been using the NFB-28 in my desktop computer system since Oct 2013.  The NFB-28 is used as a DAC/Pre driving my Focal CMS50 professional active monitor speakers via XLR with RCA outputs feeding my Focal CMS Sub (RCA to XLR cable).  The CMS50's are  on IsoAcoustics stands (highly recommended).  This system sounds great, with very high resolution.

 

I used to have sporadic "pop" noises (similar to LP "pop" or static pop).  This was NOT relay switching noise, as it came through the speakers, and it would occur erratically about once every hour or two.

 

A couple of weeks ago, I updated the NFB-28's firmware and drivers, with great assistance by Kingwa.  Since these updates, these "pops" have ceased!

 

If anyone is having these "noise" issue, you may want to try updating the NFB-28's firmware and drivers.
