    Just remember you lose DSD support if you use an Eitr. That may or may not be important to you.

    I think it's more presence than impact. Music seems to have fuller body if you know what I mean. Never regretted doing the mod.

    Have you tried the K701 with the K712/Annie pads? the K712/Annie pads also add warmth as well.

    Just got my NFB11.28 and these HD650s in the mail today. Im shocked at how good they sound.

    More and more people discover those gems :blush: it is really amazing what insight into the music those humble-priced combos can achieve!
    Other companies would make big deal out of this, and there would be much more publications and coverage.
    But it seems this forum is right now the best source of publicity R2R (and also Sabre) DACS from Audio-GD get and it is up to us owners to spread the news.
    I would recommend this without reservations. The price to satisfaction ratio for this product is off the charts for these ears and brain.
    VilMo knock-out award honestly earned :violin::dart:!

    I am getting second thoughts. I don't know after I send my R2R back to China whether to ask for an NFB instead of a replacement R2R or a refund to try the Emotiva A-100 with a multibit or sth else :frowning2:
    How are you guys finding the A-100, @s2kPanda @CoFire @bunkbail

    I own the A-100...it’s good, real good, but not as good as the R2R IMO. It does have more power, if that is important to you.

    Power would not be that important, i believe. I barely go over 9 o'çlock with my HD 600 from the R2R. I am just not sure if the R2R technology is reliable enough. If you saw this
    it is making me, if not hesitant about Audio G-D, a bit hesitant about the implementation of the R2R. That's why I've been thinking the past 2 days if I should, either, try their Sabre AMP/DACs or just a comparable AMP like the A-100 or Audio G-D's NFB1 and some other (?more reliable) DAC.

    I remember watching Zeos (not that he is a flawless reviewer, if a reviewer at all) and he was saying that the A-100 is just slightly worse than the NFB1 which costs 3x the A-100 and is supposed to be better than the R2R's AMP

    Most likely due to your computer itself. Try a different usb port. You could have a very noisy component plugged to a usb port causing all the problems. You could try a hub as well.

    Wouldn't do anything else at this point now that music sounds just right to my ears! Only wish I had more time to enjoy it. Thanks for the tip though :)
    P.s. This is one thing that I might try: connecting my CD player to r2r with an optical cable. (Yes, I do have lots of CDs.) Anyone has experience of doing so and how does the music sound compared to coming out from computers?

    How do you have your system configured?
    I dont see where youre going into the R2R-11.
  13. SoniMax
    Yes; exactly. This noise is there whether the r2r is plugged in my laptop or not. Audio g-d are speculating it might be a badly soldered right channel chip.

    Quick question for you R2R 11 owners.

    I just ordered am R2R 11 to replace my older NFB-11 (2014 unite with 2015 upgraded power supply) Ann's one of the things I don't like is how it cuts of the beginning of songs when you first click play (same worth YouTube videos).

    Can any of you confirm this is no longer an issue with the R2R 11?

  15. gLer
    Sounds like your old NFB is the same as my ifi Micro iDSD. It basically mutes the first two seconds of play after it’s been on idle or during a sample rate change. The R2R-11 doesn’t have that mute circuit, but instead you’ll hear two faint ‘pops’ (like vinyl pops) whenever it changes sample rate (using USB). This apparently goes away when using coax or optical but then you lose DSD support. Personally I have no issue with the pops, but YMMV.
