Larry says in 4 weeks or so.

XMOS has just released an update on their library and promised more Android compatibility. Larry also acknowledged of too much current draw/requirement therefore the inability to initialize on some devices.

These he said could be addressed thru firmware update.

Just happy to report that I received my GO 450 today. It left USA on 25th April and got here (Malaysia) on 5th May. So about 10 days in total.

 

I got it to replace the built-in sound on my PC. Installation of the drivers went without a hitch. Selected the "Geek Out HD Audio 1V0" as my output, plugged in both my earbuds and powered speakers into the jacks and started enjoying the music. Painless setup.

 

Initial listening impressions: more detail, greater clarity, bass had more attack and punch.

 

I was a little concerned about the volume issue. Indeed it defaulted all the volume sliders to max, so I turned it way down before playing some music; then slowly increased the volume slider. Turns out even at max volume, the gain on the GO 450 wasn't too different from the onboard PC soundcard. My previous settings are also with volume sliders close to max, I adjust volume on the media player (usually at the lower 20%).

Hi jcwc. Good to know a fellow Malaysian who own a Geek Out. What headphones are you using with the Geek Out?

 

Hope to hear more Malaysian in this forum. ;)

 

Cheers,

Just got my 720, plugged it in, installed the driver, and just started playing some music for fun.... and I have to say, Wow! Even on my cheapo Edifier 2.1 speakers I could hear a world of difference. Looking forward to hearing my gear on these.



I do note however, that these things get hot. Like, really really hot.
 

Edit: The back of my GeekOut says it's a 450, while I ordered a 720. Did I get the wrong version or did they simply tack on the wrong sticker for it? Is there anyway to make sure?

No, contact LHLabs immediately. Confirm with the serial number you have there

Hi, I'm using the Sennheiser MX985 earbuds. Previously used the Yuin PK2 and Audio Technica ATH-EC700.

 

More of my listening is through the Swans M200 MkIII speakers.

How does it sound through your Swans M200 MkIII? Do you prefer the 47 Ohm or 0.47 Ohm output from Geek Out?

Sounds great also.

 

I'm currently using both outputs. The Swans is plugged into the 47 ohm and my earbuds into the 0.47 ohm. I haven't swapped it to try if there is any sonic difference.

 

One thing I notice is that the GO 450 remains on when my PC is turned off. I wonder why?
