    You mean purchase a USB to Optical or Coax cable for the input?

    Some motherboards already have toslink/coax out, especially gaming PC.

    Unfortunately mine doesn't, as my desktop is mini ITX so it's small

    Try using a software that can gain exclusive access to the audio device (amanero) like foobar. Or throw that stupid keybord in the garbage and buy a new one. There is most likely a key jammed on it that causes the problem.

    The K-Type has an audible buzz when the LED's are turned on. Turn them off to shut it up. If anything, that buzz is probably carrying along your USB into the amp. If you want to keep using the K-type with LED's turned on, grab a Schiit Wyrd or Eitr to clean up the interference it's causing in your connection. In the case of the Eitr (which I recently got myself), it'll make a noticeable improvement to your sound quality too :)

    It sure should improve the sound. Noise on the usb line is bad. You can also try to use a jitterbug.

    Hi guys,

    here is my current setup :wink:

    Below Eitr an R2R 11 and then a NFB 11.28
    I am wondering why are the knobs on the R2R 11 not labelled?
    I saw labels on an R2R 11 some posts above mine.
    Does anyone know why are there differences? Is it another batch?
    What about your R2R11?

    BTW: Very happy with Eitr and Audio-GD :)

    I hate you man...lol. wow, nice setup. I heard it here from one member that these amps sound similar but each has something over the other, could you give us your impressions on sound and what cans your using with these bad boys?
  9. JKDJedi
    Good point, What is he using for playback? On Tidal selecting Use Exclusive Mode helps. Tidal.jpg

    Thank you!
    I don't know if I want to spend another $179 for the LED lol

    Someone suggested trying a powered usb hub so I will let you guys know the result

    I have been using iTunes and VLC. I will try that software too

    Which of the two is best for V-shaped signature headphones?

    Just get the R2R 11. I think after 54 pages it's pretty clear that the majority of this thread prefers the R2R 11.

    EDIT: A vote between the NFB and R2R should be added to this thread.

    I must say I've never heard mids quite like this before. My HD650's are absolutely singing with the R2R. Vocals sound very lifelike and natural, I was listening to Mobb Deep's Hell on Earth and was really impressed by the vocals.

    I am currently using NFB 11.28 more. Don't know why but I prefer this to the R2R 11 as sound is more crisp and clear which I currently like more. But the devices are very similar. Using AKG K812.

    Back to my knob label question: Does your R2R 11 have them or not?
  15. bunkbail
    Mine doesn't.
