My tracking says the item left LA on the 27th so it should be here within a week. No news on when they plan to ship the IGG batch yet.

No. I was a relative early KS backer, and just yesterday I received the mail with the Tracking Number for my 720. Still nothing to see.

I get the impression that international orders were given lowest priority. Which doesn't surprise me in the least.

yes, but as a early backer that had an early bird, this is disappointing.

in my experience with other kickstarter projects, early backing doesn't necessarily mean you get things first...it usually means you get in at the cheapest price. usually, the manufacturing and shipping constraints determine which models go out first.

Pretty much this. Early backers get the cheapest prices, but most of the time shipping will be cased on how they streamline the production process, or which model they decided to produce first. In this case, the 1000s got first dibs and us 720s got the short end of the stick.

Sure the delay has been rather long, but they have been very transparent about the reason for the delay, not to mention letting us know of an estimate of when they will be sending out each model of the GO. Am I happy with the delay? No. Do I appreciate their effort to keep us backers in the fold? Hell yeah.

True, Not complaining about missing transparency. But if I remember right, in some KS projects the Estimated delivery for early birds are earlier then for the non early birds. I just checked, this is not the case with the Geek OUT. 

Whatever, just happy to finally get my silver 720 :)

Yes, the GEEKs themselves were manufactured in a certain order and that was irritating enough in its own right, but I only got my notification for my 450's shipping long after 720s had already started shipping. With the $20 international shipping charge for a small thing like the GEEK, it's not cool being thrown to the back of the line. That said, I'm completely unsurprised that it was worked out that way. 

 

I'm glad you're not dissatisfied with how LH has handled things, Exesteils. Alas, I feel quite differently.

Well, I knew that it will take some time. And they never promised to ship the early birds first I guess. 

But I feel different about the Pulse. put about $600 into this, S upgrade Femto upgrade and all other upgrades... didnt got a survey yet, going nuts with this

 

However, somehow I trust them

Regarding the survey, Larry posted at lhlabs, that they will send it out in 2 weeks. Can't find the exact post right now, because I'm on the phone right now.

any update on inability of the GO to work with Android and UAPP?

a poster said that Larry acknowledged a software bug on the LHLabs side, but I haven't seen a link to where this is being discussed at lhlabs forum.

 

also, if this is a software bug, what is the procedure to update software on GO units that are already delivered?

is there a PC based procedure for updating the GO?

Because there haven't been any firmware updates as yet, no one knows what the exact procedure will be except that LH Labs had previously indicated it is field upgradeable.

 

It is mentioned (though not an ongoing discussion with lots of posts) on the LH Labs forum, I wish I could tell you exactly where but their forum is tough to navigate and find things, posts don't seem to get moved to the appropriate thread when they are made in the wrong spot.

 

LH Labs indicated it is an issue with the manner in which they are using the XMOS USB input receiver, and that they are in touch with XMOS regarding potential solutions. The post was made by Larry Ho and was phrased in such a way as to say it will be fixed, not if but when.

 

That said, no DAC manufacturer will ever assure anyone that all Android devices will be compatible, there are just too many variables and factors beyond their control.

 

Some Android devices don't have USB Host mode capability, others do but have had their own firmware crippled to prevent it from working, while still others will work with UAPP, and others (VERY few) will work with their own stock music player app.

Me, I got the GO1000, really do like it on my PC, but really don't love sitting at the PC to listen to music. What I really want is to connect to a portable player (I know, it's coming in the fall, but that's quite a while away). Have a portable battery, various sources (iPad, iPod Touch, Android phone, Samsung player-the phone without the phone, like the iPod Touch, YPP something or other). Someone had some ideas on using GO for this, any ideas how I can use one of these sources and get disconnected from the desktop?

See post #723 for iPad connection, not the prettiest or tidiest, but it does liberate you from the desktop environment.
