I don't think they have the room though.

A digital rotary volume control would be very appreciated now. And that would be the last thing I'd ask.

We have several components on the drawing board which will be affordable to more folks and still have LH Labs performance. The next two we'll release will probably be a bluetooth stage and an Airplay stage (if MFI gets approved). We also have plans for a pre-amp, an amp, a phono stage, and a linear DC power supply. Geek Pulse really will be a family of products.

i kinda had a hunch there was a plan !!

You need a way to control the volume on the chip using a rotary knob, hence some kind of encoder.

An absolute encoder (which is large and expensive) works like an analog pot with the position relating to volume

An incremental encoder would be much more likely, this would work like the up/down buttons, but with an analog interface.

Hi all, i'll side track alittle here pardon me...

 

This is my first time using indie gogo and I forgot to sign up  for an account before i made payment (i.e. i  just keyed in my details and Credit card number) but I made a contribution to the Super Early Bird Geek Pulse perk but forgot to add $40.00 for international shipping.

 

And because i forgot to sign up for an account, i can't contact Gavin to ask about it (I need to be connected to the campaign before i can email Gavin).

 

I wonder if i use the same details as before (same credit card number etc) to contribute $40.00 to the project, will it count towards my order as international shipping paid for?

I'm not sure if this was mentioned before, but how long does the special $199 deal for the Geek Out backers last? Is it until the end of the campaign?

I went through the same thing. By doing a pledge you already have an account. Just go to the login and follow the instructions for the forgot password process. Then contact Gavin.

I'm in. Hoping for rotary volume control and xlr balanced output.

Standard XLR out on rear

post #115 of 2015
Agree, standard XLR line out please....no need 2 version, XLR to RCA adapter can do the job.

Of course , AES/EBU in is even better....biggrin.gif

Please vote more for the es9018 reference dac chip
post #117 of 2015

It'd be perfect for me if it got preamp output option ...

Thread Starter 

So far an update of the many request/suggestions:

 

Updated Features:

  • Gain Switch - either on PCB board or Dip Switch at the back.
  • Two Planed Versions - RCA or mini-XLR model. (to be finalized, definitely having a balanced out)

 

In development:

  • Volume Control Knob (headphone output)
  • Display suggestions
  • Mute output with headphone jack insertion

Honestly, I hope they don't go with the larger desktop 9018.  It is very difficult to get to sound right and for a $500 ($249 for early backers) device this small, I would rather them use a chipset much better suited to the product and one that they already like the sound of.  There would have to be compromises somewhere.
