Yup, its a portable amp too.

Accepting only USB in means that it's a dac with an amp inside, not sure if Android support the USB receiver of the device though since it seems to be using the rather exotic 32/384KHz usb receiver like Xmos or such inside.

FiiO HS2 is out of production, so it become kind of unique now. wink_face.gif

Well if it doesn't work out, then it goes into my home stereo but it would be cool to have a tiny combo with a big sound.

This. I was originally planning on using it as my laptop setup amp, but if it can support android, all the better.

I have a feeling it will power IEMs and low power headphones great and sound good cause I remember reading it has a class A bias amp but might not power stuff with high ohmage. The DAC is TI PCM1795.

 

More details:

 

– NOS DAC: No over/up-sampling in this DAC, which is a core Light Harmonic value. It plays what it gets. You can, if you wish, up-sample on your computer if that's what you want to do.
– Capable of handling up to 24/192, DXD, and DSD playback.
– 3D audio technology that moves the sound from between your ears to all around you.
– 3D function can be disabled. There's also volume control and a mute function.
– DAC: TI PCM1795 DAC IC
– USB asynchronous chip: SMSC USB3343
– Filtration: Yes, there is a patent-pending 3 layer buffer for noise filtration.
– RMS Jitter: We will publish final results of our tests as soon as they are available.

– Amplifier is pure class A.

– Portable devices: GEEK will work with portable devices, but it will draw a lot of power, draining your battery pretty quickly.
– The standard enclosure will be made out of aluminum, in silver anodizing.
– Dimensions: Not finalized yet, but roughly 34mm by 65mm.

 

I am hoping it works with my Fischer FA-011 and the JVC SZ2000. The filter buffer looks interesting and the amp is PURE CLASS Aeek.gif

Pure class A amp, patented 3 layer filter, PC1795 DAC. I'm looking forward to this little beast already.

Interesting. I don't want to be tied down to USB though. I'd jump on it if they made one that had SPIDF input or at least worked with iDevices.

The design is very interesting.  the TI 1795 is a one bit NOS chip old style, that has a wonderful musical soundquality.  i have a question into Mr Fish about it right now.  could be a real breakthrough product!

OH WAIT.! I just saw their lead designer of the Geek use a HD800 on the GEEK?eek.gif Check out that video. Lol

But also lots of Beats...
I'm intrigued but would definitely wanna wait for reviews. The 3D component is especially intriguing to me

I have the Zu pure silver over copper cable for my X1 today. I'll let you X1ers know how it sounds with the headphone when I get home.

That will be good to know.  I also wondering if a pure silver cable tightens up everything and widens the stage.  Looking forward to your findings eric since that cable is affordable.

I gave it some careful thought and jumped on the Geek train. I hope that turns out to be a good one. The 3D enhancement seems to be their version of dolby surround. Which will be perfect for games and movies. I don't know if you guys seen the comparison of the dragonfly and Meridian Explorer but the Geek is actually superior to both in specs. I doubt these guys will just make it with better specs I think they will do one better in sound as well.

 

$159 for better sound than my ME.? My ME is no weak sauce either..I am actually excited to try this thing.

^ Good luck with that Trance Addict! Btw, I've gotten a bit sidetracked discovering music by Porcupine Tree (wow!), Mutemath and Babe Ruth etc, but now that our resident Lifted is back... trance on!
