    Audio-GD NFB-11.32 & NFB-11 (2014) (Delivery & Impression Thread)!!!

    yep, it's fine....for me it was a good combo...cannot comment now as I'm using the nfb11 in another setup and the 400i are paired as per signature.   on the other hand audio is a personal thing......so hard to say if something that sounds good to one is also good for another. I can tell you...

    As far as I know asio usage needs driver installation. I've just used it as instructed.

    install steps (if something goes bad after upgrade):   uninstall driver if it still appears restart install driver from audio gd site   restart power on device after windows is fully loaded (and wait for the system to automatically recognise the device) done

    well it seems that you've narrowed it down to source ( music file )

    there still might be a power issue with the source (pc psu, motherboard, etc. ) is it random or in the same place every time ?

    oh well then,   no, I haven't got anything of the sort on mine....the nfb11 holds up strong even against hard competition it just shows how exaggerated are some opinions in this field        power anomalies might also cause your issue (try to plug in diff sockets or on diff circuits or on...

    first you need to have an ear exam because it's sounds like your ear it's clogged   you can also test yourself with a mechanical watch

    knowing that you enjoy the 650 with the nfb11, you should at least try some analytical HPs before jumping to the hd800.....you might not like them....and at over 1k it's really a risky bet to rely only on written impressions from the internet (which are for sure very subjective and almost...

    why would you need stereo connectors if the signal that comes is only for 1 channel ?

    Audio-GD NFB-11.32 & NFB-11 (2014) (Delivery & Impression Thread)!!!

      ​hd800 are quite expensive so I think it will be hard to find someone who got the nfb11 and then the 800s or the nfb11 for his/hers 800s. Maybe if someone got caught in the middle during upgrades, but even then it's hard to be sure as there is a general consensus  that the hd800 needs more...

    So, you want to be future proof in the audio field with the best bang for the buck dac/amp aio that has the cost of 2 tyres for the average car ? Just buy a more expensive dac or 2 separate devices ( 1 dac and 1 amp) if you want to have a shot at  ''future proofing'' Technology improvements...

    dismissing the nfb 11 for such reason seems quite odd   how did you come up with the nfb 11 in your search if you look just for an amp ?

    good info....are you talking from direct experience ( referring to es9018 aio models especially) ?   because I didn't manage to find this info and went the separation route for 2nd system

    if I understand what you're saying correctly it should be fine, if what you hear is constant and plain and only over 70% volume if it's a sound that varies then it should be some sort of interference .... "hissing" in my book is not the same thing as "background noise" and also different than...
