That's a great design.

Thanks!

 

(I also think so... ;) )

 

The real box is tiny though, the above picture size (unexpanded) on a 13" monitor is actually a tiny bit larger than real size, I think. I think my sockets are too small...

Happy new year everybody! Gets all the time better.

 

As said before I think they should go for at least a longer housing if they do not want to use a bigger one. For the super-portable-version they have geek-out. I guess most of us will use geek-pulse on the desktop, near laptop or similar, so if the housing would be a bit bigger that would not really matter. BUT if they have to compromise on quality because of space, that would not make sense.

 
Found these things on the web which might be really interesting parts for the dac or clock voltages:
Does anybody know, what is currently planned to be used in geek pulse and any suggestions if there is anything better out there? (I know there are good discussions at diyaudio about this)

Correct scale for hight/width ratio and socket size (the faceplate's actual with is 5", the above picture expanded is almost real size on a 13.3" screen).

That depends on the resolution.

 

The unit is quite small. Is there a reason they are going for a small form factor?

I really like this design..  notice it has 3 feet instead of 4 for true audiophile class.  Although I'm not sure it really does anything since this isn't a turntable heh.  Also I like the orange text for the input source and sample rates, it really helps with legibility.  The light harmonic logo looks good too.. it's nicer than the geek logo I think

It has 3 feet...that you can see. For all we know, it could have 5 total. The middle foot is still in the middle of the unit and it would be stupid if there weren't any feet on the very back-end of the device in this configuration. wink.gif

It was more of a drawing error. Not intentionally intended.

I'll try to cover them next time (middle feet, right side face) to depict a more accurate intention.

As the volume knob is going to be the most used item on the device, I hope the final design has a large one. If I had my way I would want one close to 3" (~7.5cm) in diameter. If I had to guess, the design of Mickey's above would have one closer to 1" diameter and that's a tad small (for my tastes).

I was just thinking the same. The design from CanDude is larger but still doesn't break the boundaries of the box.

A larger volume knob would be nice, but if they plan to have LEDs around it, it's going to be hard to find a volume knob that fits the chassis and the LEDs. >.>

Just don't make it a dinky knob like on the Objective 2 and I'll be happy.

A small enclosure and LEDs around the volume knob are the design constraints for a larger Volume knob.

But i have an idea similar to that of Fiio above. We'll see how it goes.

The follow up campaign is up. Do we still earn rewards by combining impacts of the 2 campaigns?

 

Thanks.
