You're not the only one who is saving a few products for retail. And after launch you'll probably find a used LPS more easily than a fully upgraded Pulse X. The Ingiegogo campain gets you a fully decked out unit for $747. Tax free and no shipping costs since you're in the US. Current MSRP estimate is $699 for the Pulse X and that's without the added items. Factor in any potential sales tax and shipping fees and they're pretty close. So now is definitely time to at least get the Pulse. The other items don't look to have any special bonus to the Indiegogo run aside from the savings. Get a Pulse now and get all accessories later if you want. I know I'd want to get the add-ons anyways so I went ahead and backed pretty much all of it.
Thanks, I'm looking forward to it. Luckily, this time the campaign end AFTER I get paid and I'll have a larger than usual paycheck that I can expend for it. After just missing the main campaign I ignored the thread for a bit and then came back to find it was up again so I was quite excited. Looking to also preorder a Hifiman HE-560 when it's available as well so the balanced drive will come in handy.
I love my Soloist as a headamp but if the balanced amp drives the Hifiman's well enough, I could even sell the Soloist also to recoup some cost. I've already made a few posts at the Geekforce forum and look forward to following the progress to see how it turns out. I figure worst case scenario, it just ends up being "worth the price", at best a great value. I'm personally always searching for ways to squeeze more performance/value into my setup since I'm very much a "wine taste on a beer budget" type of person.
