That's all I'm gonna say right now, I'm enjoying it too much.

Everything about it is quality. Separation, detail, soundstage, tight bass, imaging, black background, crisp highs.. it's all there and noticeably better than my Aune T1, Bravo Ocean, SMSL+ HifimyDIY U2, etc. For the price paid getting in early, I feel like I got a huge bargain.

 

The 1000 handles the Havi B3 Pro1 with ease, my toughest IEM. The 450 could easily handle it too. Tons of power from just a USB port. Going to try it with my Nexus 5 and USB OTG+external battery later.

 

Ha, I thought the leds were on the sticker side. Oops. All is working.

So I know LHlabs is using sabre chips on the GEEKS which will be interesting to hear as the DX90 has a dual sabre chip integration for the DAC end of the DX90. If the Geeks end up sounding like the DX90 that is going to be an interesting comparison.

Some of the Geek Pulse models will be Dual Sabre as well.

Will be interesting to hear both of them. I ended up getting both..I lost track of all the upgrades and add ons for the Geek pulse. Most of my phones are efficient and under 50 ohms so I wasn't hearing all the more powerful versions of the units. After a while it was like a car sales man trying to sell me on options I didn't need..It is about time everyone got their DACs is what I have to say about that. Unfortunately it will be no more funding from me to LHlabs..Eager to hear the Geeks none the less..

Yup, Yup, and another yup...I'm going to have to reassess my headphones, some things I thought I knew about them turn out not to be true when driven by a Geek. I already mentioned, always found Senn HD650 to have the infamous Senn haze, not through the Geek. It sounds clear, alive, detailed. Played around with a few more, put on the Beyer 1350. I had done a comparison of these, Senn Amperiors, ML Mikros 90, and Yamaha HPH-200 here a while back (and spun it off as a thread). I liked the 1350 the least, found it a bit disjointed (was using decent DAP and amp, portable). Well, ran it through the Geek out of curiosity, these sound awesome. Coherent, detailed, open, still not quite the pace of the Senn's, but not deficient in rhythm. I believe in miracles...

What is the total capacity for the DX90 with card inserted?

I believe it is 8 gigs but accepts up to 128 gig cards which have been confirmed on the DX90..

I really want those 128G cards to cost $50 on amazon.ca. :(

Ya no doubt. It will be a while before they sell under $80. It is mind blowing how much space a small chip can hold now a days. Next is 256 gigs. Lol.

as far as anyone knows, will the variations in Geek Out (450, 720, 1000) result in any sonic differences (other than power output and ability to drive more power hungry phones) at all?

My 450 and 1000 sound the same. The 1000 is overkill for me right now, but would work wonders if I ever get the Hifiman HE-560.

 

Whoever jumped in at $99 on these made out like a bandit. Top notch gear.

And it's mind blowing how much music I'm accumulating! Let's see... 9GB of ektoplazm and 13G of John 00 Flemming Global Trance Grooves alone. Yup - looking forward to those as yet non-existent 256G cards getting down to  $50 lol!

Bhazard I suppose although it is explicitly stated that the 450 drive <100 Ohm HPs, it can also still effectively drive 100-200 Ohms?
