Ds...I have dx90 arriving tommarrow. I know u love it with fx850. Is it because both are good, or is there even extra synergy with them.

Both synergy and ability..The DX90 is the most neutrally accurate sounding source I have ever owned which brings out true qualities of other factors in the equation. Be it a recording from the music itself to the phones you use with it. For example that natural timbre, detail and large stage of the FX850 meshes extremely well with the sound of the DX90. And both having a large wide stage as a source and a phone means your gonna get a pairing that just sounds about as good as it gets really. .


Same with the L2 using the DX90..It just sounds expansive and alive..The greatest aspect of the DX90 is that is pairs well with everything I own actually and don't pick n choose what it likes..This is how transparent the sound is from the DX90..The weak link will most definitely not be the source in this equation.. An excellent clean source with an excellent phone and you get a sound explosion of the extremely enjoyable kind..

So I did some comparisons of the Geek Out with my DX90 and the Geek Out for what it is I would put the sound quality at around the $300 level in sonics. It does punch above the $200 cost point at MSRP..It is on a similar playing field as the ICON dac and my NFB-5. Which is quite an accomplishment considering this sound and power comes from a sound card the size of a pack of gum. Some crazy good engineering on these Geeks. It has two headphone outs. One being 47Ohm for higher impedance cans and .47 Ohm for lower impedance and earphones..

 

I have been using my Doppios of all phones on it as it pairs extremely well with the Geek Out. The surprising thing was I threw the Doppios on there as it was my most sensitive earphone to test the noise floor on the unit and it hasn't left the Geek Out since.  Getting a nice burn in at the moment.

 

Compared to the DX90. There is a Sabre family resemblance in sound but the DX90 is superior in just about all aspects of sound. The Geek Out is leaning more toward a consumer friendly tuning more than the audiophile tuned DX90. Meaning it has more bass emphasis and sounds more intimate. Where the Geek Out is really surprising is that it has a very pleasing yet technical sound tuning on it to where it will sound right for all types of music. Sound scope is done very well on the Geek Out. The DX90 has better separation and layered depth with a touch wider stage, results of the more sophisticated dual sabre dac and amp chips implementation. Otherwise I consider the Geek Out a very worthy portable dac amp to use with your laptops.

FX850 Ordered and you, Dsnut was responsible for it. But honestly, i like what i hear when i audition it earlier and now the wait begins.

Was saving for the Heaven V but the pre order price for the 850 here was tempting. So, now have to start saving for the V.

Happy listening fellas.. Do give them a good break in. I wouldn't take them seriously until after a 100 hours.

Will do. Burn-in or not. I'm already digging the sound. Timbre is already well done, soundstage is wider than most stuff I own, even full sized ones. Should be interesting to see how they open up

My SRH-1540 arrived today and they are everything I was hoping for. Big bass when needed with amazing midrange and treble, plus detail and an amazing sound stage. I suspect I will be using these everywhere except transit and the office (to conspicuous for the office). Listening to Dire Straits right now and they sound just awesome, also tried Beckah Shae - Rest (big sub-bass) and 2Cellos Thunderstruck and both sounded awesome.

Congrats, enjoy-I had to do some bending of the frame to get a good fit/seal (I must have the weirdest head ever, almost nothing ever fits off the bat), but with a bit of adjustment-the frame is firm but can be bent to fit-got great sound, was just listening to it a few hours ago through Ray Samuels HR-2 amp. It does fine unamplified, a good amp and it steps up.
Project for later: get output correct on Geek Out 1000, seems to not be outputting directly from GO, cuts sample rate to 48 from higher rez files, haven't found what's set incorrectly yet. Did get some instructions from GO thread, sit down with it (wife is out, daughter is baby sitting, it's me and the dog, he LOVES adjusting/playing with headphones and electronics smily_headphones1.gif

Aha we have another SRH1540 fan. That sound is addicting for certain..Gotta love the spacial qualities in the sound. That depth is incredible. It is amazing to me that they pulled off that large full layered sound using 40mm drivers in the SRH1540..
