Group design and voting is always tough, because unless one design completely dominates the voting, a ton of people are going to be unhappy that "their" choice didn't win.  If LHlabs just put out a design, some people may not like it, but it would be much easier to accept because their was no choice.

 

Personally, I think 5 looks the best because it is clean, simple, and maybe even a bit boring (though it is quite close to what I would have designed for myself).  I know people wanted to keep some sort of reference to the Da Vinci in the design, but I think the Da Vinci is hideous.  Also, I don't like high contrast or two tone faceplates.  I am a bit OCD when it comes to aesthetics and don't want any single piece outside of my headphones to make too large a design statement on my desk or rack.  While I do wish they had black as an option, I think Schiit nailed it with simple, classy design.  It might bore a number of people, but I think boring is better to suit the masses and allows for more money and effort to be put into the guts of a device.  

I will say that any of the designs would work for me if they were available in black to take away the two tone look.  

 

Oh, and kudos to all people who submitted designs.  Wonderful that you put in the effort and shared it with the community.

I was really torn between #1 and #5.  There are aspects of both that I like.  Regardless of what design is chosen it would be wonderful to have an option for some color choice, anodized or painted (powder coat please).

They all have a nice sized volume knob, so I'll be happy with any of them! smily_headphones1.gif

Has anyone gotten an end of campaign survey?

Has LH done any pre-production demos?

I am hoping this amp will be a proper match for my new LCD-XCs (my current Asgard isn't)

Did anyone here who bought the holiday package with 3 separate payments get an email for making the 2nd payment?

looks like #5 is starting to pull away as the overwhelming favorite (and "overwhelming" in this case is about 50% of the total vote).

 

and i agree that the da vinci is "hideous"...i guess if you can afford a DAC like that, you want it to, um, stand out.

Yeah. I received mine today asking for the second installment.

Mine appeared in the junk e-mail folder, so be sure to check that before doing your daily "junk dump" routine.

Yeah, not looking like much of a race now, #5 has a commanding lead.

As I just missed out on the 1500 $ bonus, I am curious as to what it was. So I  know if I can relax or kill myself.... :confused: Could someone please tell what it was?

From the looks of it, there's a private thread for people who contributed over $1500. That said, there are many people who did contribute over that number still can't view that sub-forum. Honestly I'd just relax if I were you. I doubt you're missing out on much. I spent more and I'm still "missing out." :p
