Light Harmonic GEEK - Page 66

post #976 of 1058
I have to say this is happening often enough to make me not want to use GO1K, good sound and all. I'm becoming more likely to pick up my iBasso DX90 and listen (I prefer to be untethered, anyway, but was sitting at the computer because of how good the sound is). the DX90 can also be used as DA converter/amp, like GO, though I haven't tried it yet. If something doesn;t give, likely will get rid of the Geek gear and find stuff that works without so much trouble (I still get the deafening volume when I plug the GO in, which is every time I have to reboot due to the above problem. Coupled with the inability to figure out how to get sound out of my speakers, from the browser, and it's getting so the good sound alone isn't enough. I posted on the Geek site, Gaven told me to enter a ticket, but haven't heard anything back from them, been 3 days or so (I know they're busy, but, hey, this is the only support one can get on this kind of product).

I wish I could offer some advice, but I don't yet have my GO and on top of that I'm a Mac user. Hopefully someone has a possible fix for you either here or on the LHLabs forums soon.

Would I be better off with Foobar or another player?


Foobar also requires a reboot after power surge on a port.

Have you tried connecting directly to a USB3 port, without a hub?

I did try it both ways, it's such a short cable I connect it to the front usb ports directly, still happens, hard to quantify, I get the sense it's more often with the hub, but happens when directly connected as well. Not sure about the ports in front, Guess they must be usb2, not but not practical use at the back of my PC, already feel like I don't have room to move around much even attached to the front of the computer. I'll probably stop using the hub (the GO does sound better through the hub, slightly, by the way...)

There is this also possibility: Upgrade your usb drivers? 

 

Do you know your motherboard's brand and model number? At least your PC's Brand and model number? Can you post it?

PC was built for me by a friend (he nicely puts it as we both built it-I stood behind him handing him parts, he put it together). I believe I have the boxes in the basement, could get info off there, look tonight, gotta run to work now (should really stay away from PC before work hours. LOL)

What OS are you using? It could be a hardware issue. Is there a bios update for your motherboard?
post #983 of 1058
I'm on Windows 7, trying to find the bios update information for the motherboard, so far haven't succeeded. Not sure how to check the drivers, either. Opening the Control Panel to try to get this information. I'll go to the basement, see if I can find motherboard info.

Anyone here know about consumer law in the US? I would like to know what rights I have in regards to my pre-order transaction. They have continuously promised me my two Geek Outs on a continuously revised timeline and I am losing hope that I will ever see it. So, I would to know my rights to see if I am entitled to a refund due to failure to supply my product.

Hi Suopermanni,
 
Before you posted this request to head-fi, have you tried just asking them for a refund and an order cancellation via their trouble ticket system (http://geek.lhlabs.com/geekoutsupport.html)? Despite their constantly slipping shipping schedules, the people behind Light Harmonic / LHlabs seem like pretty stand-up guys, and would probably honor your request to cancel your order without a hassle.
 

best regards,

tom

I have done a ticket while I posted here.

post #988 of 1058
Yup, I have no word on my Geek Out either despite making multiple tickets and exchanging multiple e-mails with LH.
post #989 of 1058

They said they are currently shipping pre-orders, and that the last ones in line should be sent on the first week of July.

Will that actually happen?

Originally I was told the CES Geek Out winners would be receiving their units in late April. After months of waiting with no word about it, I was told they would be shipping the first week of June. After 3 weeks, almost 4, of waiting and still not receiving it, I still haven't been told as to when it will be shipped.

Now you're telling me they're shipping it in early July?

This is absolutely ridiculous...

On top of that, some of the Geek Pulse surveys were just released yesterday and they didn't even have an option for the Geek Out despite having a Geek Pulse/Out combination perk. Are they even making the Geek Out any more? From what I see, they've completely abandoned it all together. People everywhere are also complaining about the software for the Geek Out on Windows and how it blows out people's eardrums without warning. LH said they were going to have an update for those drivers soon, soon being a few months ago. Where the heck are the updated drivers?
