I too was one of the very early ones in the KS campaign. My GO1000 was shipped 13 April and only received 06 May (so far for Italian Post).

But as with KS/IGG campaign, I always put it in my mind that I am 'Crowdfunding' and NOT 'buying'. And that what I am getting is a 'Perk'.

Or else, I will just get CRAZY of frustrations.

But with respect to the majority on KS/IGG, they are doing pretty well. Others took more than a year for delivery.

Shipping info hasn't updated on my package since 28 April. Sent an email to Steve yesterday to check if i should be concerned. Hopefully I'll get a response soon.

Where you from Bro? In my case they lost tracking (USPS) when it leaves in their international sorting facility in LA. Example mine they sent April 13,received by USPS on 15th, sent international 17th and after that nothing more tracking. Received the item May 6th,2 days ago. (after 18days from Italian Post).

Yeah, once it leaves USA then updates are dependent on the destination country's postal authority. Aside from tracking on USPS, also try tracking on the destination country's postal website.

I noticed in the LH Control Panel there are several options for the USB Streaming Mode. Default is "Safe".

 

What's the pros & cons of the various choices?

Yeah, I'm in South Africa. I thought it might have something to do with that, that's why I sent an e-mail to check whether I should be concerned or not. It's common for things to take aaaages to get here, but I was a little worried that the shipping information had stopped. I've had tracking information update all through the process before with other international orders, guess it just depends.

Has anyone tried DXD files via the Geek Out?

 

I downloaded a sample from 2L (DXD 24BIT/352.8kHz) and tried to play using foobar 1.3.2 (on a Win XP PC) but I got an error message saying "Unrecoverable playback error: The parameter is incorrect.   (0x80070057)"

 

Any idea what could be the problem?

DXD, DSD64,DSD128 all are playing nicely. I'm using JRiver MC19 btw. Even upsamples my PCM files to DSD128 all the time. ^_^

The problem is that you are using incorrect parameters. :p

 

DXD files are just regular ol' PCM, but specifically at 24/352.8

 

Make sure you're playing back the output data format at a bit depth of 24-bit at least, and you shouldn't have a problem.

 

Hopefully you've got your DSP chain turned off (maybe some plugins might not play well), and you're using WASAPI or the ASIO driver included with the Geek.

 

(I don't have first hand experience with the Geek; haven't received it yet, but DXD playback on Foobar should work the same way as it does with my Resonessence Concero HP)

I have a weird question, i plan to connect an external hard drive via usb, and put all my music on it, my question is, with the geek, is there any loss of quality of the sound because the files are on an external hard drive and not internal?
