OK, I think I follow now. So Slacker Mini and Slacker are 2 separate cables. The Mini is just to work as a sort of strain relief and the Slacker to give ease of access to other ports. For some reason it wasn't registering to me that those are 2 different things. :p

Is there any sort of estimated shipping/launch date?

First week I hope.

So here's a question I hope to get answered before the end of the Pulse campaign. I have the normal Geek Out on order currently. I'll be running my 1964-Q, HD650 and Alpha Dogs off the Geek. I use my IEM at the lowest volume possible when running directly out of my laptop; much beyond that and is mildly uncomfortable and I'm wondering if using the Geek would make them too loud.

 

Is it wisest to get the Super Geek and potentially overpower my CIEM or is it best to get the normal Geek and use my E12 to provide the extra juice for my 650/AD? Do I actually have to worry about volume being too loud?

I have the same case, and I ordered the mid level Geek, so that it wont be overpower nor underpower for any head phone that I am using, and save my self from spending an additional $50.

In your case, you may consider what do you use the most with? If it's a big headphone, go with the Super Duper Geek, If IEM, the base model will do just fine. Or you may get the best, and try to control the volume with your music player/OS.

Since you already have E12, there is no reason to get the Super Geek. E12 is a great amplifier.

1964-Q is extremely sensitive (118dB SPL/mW), and a Super Geek may be too powerful for comfort.

Thank you both. I wasn't sure if I was better off with the mid or base model. It sounds like the base model is what I should stick with. I wasn't sure if the Geek would be controlling the OS volume or working independently and it sounds like it's the OS. I appreciate the recommendations.

Hi Larry,

 

Is the Geek Out shipping out next week?

post #236 of 1058
Bro, around the end of January

It's what I heard too.  Darn.  Was hoping for beginning.

I ordered the Super-Duper Geek Out through the upgrade thing on the Geek Pulse campaign....

I have the E12 and it's too loud for me at home with my headphones. :|
I didn't even consider this. >.>

Although the Geek Out is digitally controlled rather than through an analog potentiometer, which may help. smily_headphones1.gif

The JDS Labs C5 has a 4.95 VRMS maximum voltage output, Super-Duper Geek Out has 4 VRMS. Although the JDS Labs C5 has a power output of 16 mW at 16 Ω instead of the Geek Out's 1 W. :|


What to do....

Has anyone seen the measurements for the GEEK since the switch to the ES9018M?

 

I've seen the measurements for the GEEK Pulse, there seems to be quite a lot of high order harmonics.

 

Do we know whether going from the normal GEEK to the Super Duper GEEK raises noisefloor and THD?

Geek Out has made its way onto the Wall Street Journal's list of best gear for hi-res audio.. It beat out the Dragonfly as their recommendation for entry level. Quite impressive.
