    Hi, all

    Here is the key details of circuit upgrade.

    1) Change the DAC chip to ES9018M. 
    2) Change to one of the smallest/greatest relays to switch in/out the 3D awesomifier. 
    3) Relocate IV conversion resistors for even better noise performance 
    4) Enlarge the capacitance for 5V USB input, result: Even crazier and solid base there 
    5) Enhance and optimize the DAC IC power supplies. (analog and digital route separated)

    Enjoy!

    Larry

I know you can't read specs and tell how it is going to sound, but Larry really seems to be looking at all the right things to get great performance out of this (well, obviously since he helped build the DaVinci).  I can't wait for this and definitely want more than one.  If they can maintain Android and Apple compatibility for truly on the go use, they will have a huge winner even at $299.

What's the link that he gave us in the caption below video?

And I found that output power of usb3.0 < output power of Super Duper Geek, how can Super Duper Geek draw more power than the actually power source can supply?

Gavin asked that it not be posted publicly since it was just for Kickstarter backers.  If you were a backer, you should have received an email.

 

Also, USB 3.0 can do up to 4.5W (2.5W USB 2.0).  Super Duper puts out 1W max.

It should be in my spam folder :D

Sorry for the false information. I was reading the wrong number. Thanks for the clarification.

If I were to want a Collector edition of just the Geek, it would be only $695 while a collector set of the Super Duper would be $995 and for a full collector set of all versions only $2,535. Anyone????

"just plugged some Audeze LCD-Xs into it and boy these little gadgets got some balls"

 

First preview by Tyll? :smile:

 

I wonder how it will compare to Concero HD. Sound wise, that is.

Will it have upgradable firmware?

Looks like Sabre is the final choice - placed an order at an original price.

If it will sound close to NFB-11.32, I'll be happy.

Whoa, was not aware of how tiny this thing is!

Dunno how I feel about it being Sabre now, I trust the Resonessence guys with that chipset and that's about it.

My gut instinct tells me Larry Ho is up to the challenge.  Plus, he uses the HD800 for listening (as I do), so if he does any tuning by ear, I am hoping this means that it won't be too brittle or sterile with the HD800.

 

And if the thing sounded good with the 1795, but they think they can get it to sound better with the Sabre, then I am all for it.
