the problems are caused by the VIA 1731 drivers ... I think that all audio-gd's have the VIA, so there is no difference if you're going to pick the 15 ... you'll encounter the same problems.

Use Direct Sound, instead of ASIO/WASAPI.
Possibility of sound quality degradation though :wink:

I am someone who wants things to work with relative ease and not have blue screens and driver problems etc. But I am also looking for great sound out of my DT 990 pro 250 ohm and future HD 598 and 650. 
 
Do you think I should steer clear from NFB series?
 
Is there another safer option that performs as well?

I received my nfb-11 yesterday. Didn't face any issues in driver installation. Just make sure you are not connected to usb hub (connect directly to the pc/laptop). Enjoying with jriver now. Havent tried headphone out yet
The relay is quite audible which is a minor distraction for me.

How does this go with the HE-500 and D2000?

Are drivers stable for Windows 8?

Can someone explain to me why everyone is struggling with Windows drivers, when you can just use Optical out? Assuming you guys have SPDIF

I've always used USB on all my Audio-GD gear with multiple desktops, laptops and windows 8 tablets and never had an issue... I think most of the problems are user error...

hmm, this is a technical forum and I doubt it that so many experienced users (despite the fact that they love the sound) can make the same mistakes and have eg. those awfull blue-screens, etc. ... Personally, I did everything possible, but I still get them, while in YouTube, WMP, etc. and it is really frustrating ... luckily, with foobar I 've got no issues ....

I've been interest in upgrading my setup from HD598+E17 for a long time and NFB-11 has caught my attention. I was thinking of getting something along HD600 or HD650, but have not found many impressions with NFB-11. Can anyone recommend in choosing between 600/650 and if nfb-11 is not a good match, maybe another SS amp?

Quick question... Is the NFB-11 the exact same as the NFB-11.32, or are there some differences? I assumed it was just a name change, but I'm not sure.

I plan on using this amp/dac with Spotify (premium). Any issues with that, has anyone tried?

Thank you! I have also not decided on whether I should get the NFB-11 or NFB-15. Any opinions? My headphones is the HE-400i.
