    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    Ok so I just tried with my brother's Macbook and it worked flawlessly, plug , choose amanero as output and enjoy. So Heavyboxer you're using yours via optical limited to 96khz right? I am using mine via USB, now I am horrible with computers and might be doing it wrong but to change the...

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    I've been havig this crackling/poppig issue with my r2r11 since I received it a week or so ago. Today I'll be able to try with a different computer. It is a Mac so those don't need any type of driver to be installed right, or should I start searching for some rivers for iMacs?

    Audio-gd USB-32 Firmware, Drivers, and Feedback Thread

    Yesterday I received my r2r11 and I've been having this issue in which a sort of popping (like the cracks you hear on many vinyl records but more annoying) occurs all throughout any song I play, be it VLC, Foobar or youtube. Happens in both low and high gain. After installing the Amanero driver...

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    How do you adjust the buffer length? Task manager shows CPU working at 10% or lower so I'd asume that's not the matter. I have disconnected all usb from my external HDD where I store my music, and it also happens with youtube tracks. I have tried all 3 usb ports on my laptop (don't have any...

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    I have gone to sound configuration, clicked on properties and turned the predetermined setting to 32 bit 96khz. Also there's a bracket that is named something like speed of sampling (velocidad de muestra in spanish) that asks por compatibility with the digital receiver (r2r11 I asume) and I have...

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    Hello fellas, so my r2r 11 finally arrived (after almost a month + being hit with customs) and it was plug and play, didn't have to install any drivers (my laptop runs on windows; weren't macs and linux the only ones supposed not to need any drivers?). So anyway, the thing is that a series of...

    Out Of Your Head - new virtual surround simulator

    And how much is the Realiser A16 gonna cost? I've seen that they've been using it with the hd800 so it might be a bit of cheating? Is it gonna sound just as perfect with any decent headphone?

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    Ahh great to hear. Man I can't wait, It's been a week already listening to my new K712s plugged straight into my laptop; they're gonna sound great when that r2r finally arrives.

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    My R2R11 should arrive next week (or at least I hope so since it's been flying from Guangzhou China since the 18th) but Kingwa told me to check the product to see if it was damaged while the postman was still there. I'm guessing he means if it's suffered any physical damage from handling in the...

    The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread

    I've got them recently too (have had them for a week now) and I use them connected straight into my laptop while I wait for my r2r11 to arrive. The soundstage does sound compressed (though you still get a sense of sound coming from out of your head, however close it might be), the imaging is...

    Audio-gd R2R 11

    I ordered the R2R 11 more than a week ago and decided to go for EMS instead of DHL as Kingwa told me EMS had better feedback in Spain. My item was first posted the 14th and has done a lot of going around in China for some reason and now is been stuck in GUANGZHOU since the 18th... Is there...

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    quick question. The guy from audio gd has told me to make the payment via paypal in two times (first 100something then 200something). Should I make the first payment and wait for him to send me an email or just make the two payments right away?

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    Amp for ATH-AD2000, Dac for Stax

    Ahh that's good to hear then, thanks for your helpful answers. I am basically interested in stax after hearing the mighty Orpheus playing Mahler's 1st symphony; listening to the first movement just felt like I was there, in a great auditorium listening to great musicians... so I am desperately...

    Amp for ATH-AD2000, Dac for Stax

    Thanks for your answer! An do you have any recommendations for amping the stax 300 other than the amp they come in a bundle (srs-3100) with? An what about maintenance, I've seen that you can be screwed if dust gets in the driver, and I'm not willing to buy a 40€ plastic bag to prevent that...

    The Stax Thread III

    JBL 305 (i know, speakers) vs stax 300? I've read that JBL speakers are better than sennheisers HD 800 so maybe I'd just get these speakers instead of stax 300 and then probablyget a pair of closed back headphones for when I'm at the library. So, will the JBLs do what dynamic headphones can't do...

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    Ah yes I saw that later, it seems that they are easy to drive but picky with the sonic properties of the amps (but to the point of having to buy a 1k amp specifically designed for it? come on that sounds stupid) so I'll have to ask in the thread for those cans. Thanks for your answers guys!

    Audio GD NFB-11.28 vs R2R 11

    Does the R2R 11 have enough juice for the ATH W5000 Raffinato? Someone said the AD2000s are an excellent match, will it be so with the W5000?
