    Dear FreadA,

    You mean the M-Dac is better overall but the R2R 11 is more analog like so it might suit better someone's preference?

    My system is very flat and transparent BTW.

    No, what i mean't was the Master-7 has a clear edge over the m-dac. The r2r-11 is closer to it than the m-dac.

    You mean the new limited edition one?

    It should be available in France next week, but only very few units (announced 100 units worldwide...)

    Received my NFB-11.38!

    I'm so not used to desktop dac/amp. By turning the volume dial just a little, its already quite loud. I can't even reach the 10-2 sweet spot!

    What headphones are you using? Also what source are you feeding it with?

    I'm using the Meze 99 Classics. According to the site, it says:
    "Sensitivity: 103dB at 1KHz, 1mW".
    "Impedance: 32 Ohm".

    Received my Massdrop plus not long ago, going to test it out soon.

    Edit: Forgot to add. Via USB to my desktop. Running Foobar and 192 kHz Flacs.

    Yeah - that's pretty sensitive. Maybe you can turn down the source volume? (like if you are feeding it from a PC, for example). Anyway - congratulations on the purchase! I thought about ordering one, but I've been buying too much stuff over the last month, so I'll have to pass on this. I'm quite happy with my R2R-11 though! :)

    WHY have I not thought about that!?!?!

    I'm such an idiot!

    Update: Set the volume to 5% on my Foobar. Now I'm able to turn the dial to 10 o'clock. YES!
    Update 2: So something chimed on my desktop. Its still at 100% loudness. Now my eardrums are blown off. :sweat:

    I think what you want to do is leave the Foobar volume at full and turn down the overall Windows volume (or whatever operating system you are using). I believe that when I first installed the Amanero drivers, the volume was set to 100 in Windows. I normally run it at around 70-80.

    Run via asio and bypass windows mixer volume.

    It doesn't do anything when I adjusted the Amanero sliders in Windows. (Windows 10 Ultimate).

    I'll figure that out!

    L or H gain?

    The Meze are so sensitive. Not surprised.
