After do a lot practices with
almost well know chips , only two USB chips can work fine with
ES9018 through I2S connect direct , The USB-32 chip is the best combo with ES9018 we are
consider, but its high cost ever block us back several
It is much cost than any USB chips as we had know .
USB-32 chip is worth the price, it had 32bit / 384K Asynchronous Transfer
ability and the Hi-End grade sound quality .
In NFB-27, even though the ES9018 support up to 32Bit
/192KHz, but the USB-32 chip have 384KHz support ability which is mean
it have strong data process ability and very low jitter PLL , can
reproduce the better sound .
The NFB-27 USB input is so superb so it without drop off unless your computer very busy to
process other softwares and stop response .
USB-32 chip was released July, 2010 from the large audio
and IT manufacturer , through two years grow up, it
already very mature and steady .
All USB chips have the ADC and SPDIF RX , we asked the manufacturer custom design the drivers ,
remove the ADC and SPDIF RX , put the
process ability on reduce jitter and improve on sound quality , so it
have extreme low jitter and very detail sound without harsh .
USB-32 chip have quite low request from the computers. We test by a
SONY web book , 1G memory with an Atom Z510 CPU (WIN7 home
version), the web book even can't play 720P video but can work fine with
NFB-27 .I advice users
setting on 32 bit output in the computer
, even playback 16bit files , 32 bit transmit keep the ES9018
working at the best state for the best sound reproduce .
