Ah - sorry ... I don't think there will be any more till it is released ... still, we can all dream, and you have enough positive words to go on ...  :)

There was only one person who pledged $1000 to become a BETA tester on Kickstarter.

Any update on release or ship date.  I know the plan is some time in January but I'm hoping like Christmas.    Larry?

I have a few noob questions;

 

About the Geek itself:

 

- Will this sound better than any PC grade sound cards ? (like the Auzentech Hometheater HD) ?

- Will the Geek sound better then, lets say, a PC + Pioneer Receiver (SC-35) (all by HDMI) ?

- I have an DT990 600ohms versions in the setup above, will the Geek be able to drive it ?

- I believe that a Windows Driver will be avaliable for us pc users ?

- The Geek will have an internal or external powersupply ?

- The PS will be AC/AC, AC/DC ?

 

About the international shipping

 

- Can we choose the shipping method ? (like Fedex, USPS and etc) ?

 

 

 

Thanks for the help and patience :D

You should take a look at the website for it at mustgeekout.com.  Most of your questions are answered there, plus a lot of good info is linked to (their blog is quite good).  

 

Only a few people have heard the prototypes so subjective impressions are few and rough.  It should be at least as good, and most likely better than any nice soundcard.  In all likelihood it has a better DAC chipset than in your Pioneer, but there is a chance you prefer your receiver.  The 600ohm Beyers might be too much to ask for the basic GEEK and you will have to take a look at the step up Super GEEK if it is still available.  Yes, a USB driver, if needed, will be provided.  The GEEK is powered by the USB port it is plugged into.  No idea about shipping, but most likely not.

I assumed you asked about the Geek Pulse since you were talking about AC/DC power.

 Supposed to be, if not why are we spending the money for it? An external dac always make the sound better because they are not being affected by the noise inside the PC, and have better design.

- Will the Geek sound better then, lets say, a PC + Pioneer Receiver (SC-35) (all by HDMI) ?

Answer above

- I have an DT990 600ohms versions in the setup above, will the Geek be able to drive it ?

Technical speaking, they have enough power to drive it

- I believe that a Windows Driver will be avaliable for us pc users ?

Must be!

- The Geek will have an internal or external powersupply ?

External, provided within the package. However, there is an option for upgraded PS

- The PS will be AC/AC, AC/DC ?

AC/DC

Yes. The Geek Pulse is still funding for another 10 days. The Geek Out funding was completed in September.

Out of curiosity, has anyone seen an image of the slacker USB extension? I'm curious about it since the Geek Pulse campaign has this for the description: "Slacker Mini is a small USB extension for your Geek Out. It features a 360 degree ball joint, so your Geek Out can always point in the direction you want it without fear of damaging the USB connector." How would a cable include a 360º ball joint? The image on the Kickstarter page shows what looks to me like a standard everyday USB extension cable.

Hmm, a 6" cable version of that could be interesting. Wonder if that's similar to the final slacker design.

That is the image that LHlabs posted with their announcement so I would assume it will be very similar if not identical.  The Slacker looks like a normal short extension.
