DA VINCI V




Am I the only one that thinks the usb ports on the LPS on the front is a bad idea? I mean I'm just imagining the wire sticking out and bending backwards to plug into the behind of the Pulse .... 

 

Edit: Forgot to mention that the this Da Vinci V model looks incredible :D

The USB ports are being moved to the back of the LPS. Source: Geek Temple

My vote is for a case made from synthetic saphire wink.gif

..but really, I just want the Pulse to perform and last a long time, that would make me happy.

I like the yellow or silver Da Vinci mock ups the most. The yellow one reminds me of cork wood, and I'm all up for having wood in audio products. smily_headphones1.gif

Gives a really good feeling that things are moving! I like the plain metal on the great photo-mock-ups! All metal looks great! Spend my money on parts instead of color!

 

I vote as well for a separate input-push-button on front. Anyway I personally turn down the volume when i switch input, but "mute" or something like it would make more sense on the volume-push-knob for me. I am skeptical about the idea of double use the volume as an input switcher too. For me those are two separate things. A highly integrated interface is maybe on the long run a bit too much to learn.

 

Somebody some information where the decent on/off-switch and the gain-adjust for the headphones is?

 

How about two more leds on the front that lid up when "bypass" is active or mute is set - would make it 10 for the volume - to give some lowest/highest-bit-crunch feeling!

 

Would be nice to have more of the geekforce-stuff with read-rights to everybody.

Mmm this one. I like it alot. There is something about this retro-hitech 1990 design.

The other silver one was good aswell.

 

Lets just hope LH do not put the Geek logo on the final design, that one I do not like :confused_face:

Forgot about that one.

Back in the Geek Force forum. They were talking about LEDs around the volume knob as Volume indicators.

Here is one design by Vitto.

I like that black design by vitto a lot.  I like how nothing is vertically stacked on it.  I think that will make it easier to mount all the leds to the PCB won't it?  When they are veritcally stacked, usually they have to run a wire to the led.  The pro input source button committee seems to have given up, looks like we're getting a push-in volume knob to change source.  oh well I guess if it's implemented well it might be ok

I just hope the Pulse comes in different colours. There are too many black audio products out there! That's part of the reason why Schiit's products look so stunning: simple and different.
post #1018 of 2005
I'm sure it will come in any color you want, as long as what you want is black or silver wink.gif

Looks really good, even I would like it more in plain metal (aluminum?).

All money on good parts - that is my vote!

Am I the only one who might get confused in 2 or 3 years to remember if double-click or single-click on the volume-button was input-switching or 3D? I am sure we will all know when we get the device, but seriously this is too clean to understand!

1+ for a separate input-source-select button! Come on, this means 1 pushbutton more on the pcb for less confusion.
