mmm... even if they did listen to it briefly, what makes them qualified to judge? a brief listen without extensive direct testing against the competition or objective measurement tests is kinda worthless imo.
i'm sure the light harmonic geek is a great product, but it's $300msrp is not very exciting. the final version better have a lot of extra features, since there are a lot of really solid similar products at a much cheaper price on the market right now. I am skeptical that this product really going to be three times better than the $99 dragonfly.
edit: also, i think the basic design is flawed. it's a giant box that is flush to the usb port. most computers have multiple usb ports right next to each other. it's going to block all your usb connections. something so basic overlooked makes me nervous.
edit2: watching the promo video where they are pairing the $300 geek + the $300 beats executive makes me want to laugh. you can get so much more sound value for $600. their focus on bass & 3d gimmicks seems to be more geared towards non-audiophiles.
