I too have not received a Pulse survey email, and have raised a ticket.

But, you will need a "start code"... not sure if they are all the same code or different.

I completed the survey, and the day after received an update asking about an address confirmation email.

 

I raised another ticket, and now it seems the address has being confirmed, and the delivery date of my geek out 1,000 has being pushed a third time, from the original week 2 june to week 4 june or week 2 july the latest.

 

I hope the sound quality compensates for the waiting.

geek pulse survey complete !!

post #1746 of 1933

I got my Geek Out 1000 in a timely manner. As for the Geek Pulse/X/Femto/$1M Instant upgrades, I have yet to receive the survey though. Sent LHLabs a ticket yesterday.

Hi mattelka, kudos. Hope the geek sound great !!!!

Since LH seems to have opted out of updating their backers via Indiegogo for any Geek Pulse updates (a very a poor and foolish choice in my opinion) and is instead updating the Geek Force forums, I thought I'd post these.

Geek Pulse Production

Progress is going smoothly. Larry and the engineering team are set to finish final tweaking and will send out BETA units to a few Geek Force members in the third week of July. Then we will have a one-to-two week beta period. In the mean time, we have a 90% confidence level that we can start PCB production before July 31st.; the pilot run will be 100 boards. We’ll use that process to figure out any production-related issues, if any. Then we’ll go full speed ahead!

Hi, Force

Today we fine tuned the negative power trail and very satisfied for the results.

So now we will focus on the 'gain switching' testing for headphone output.
Also, the OLED display and etc....Apple Remote control test...
We are close the final design adjustment. I'm kind of tired but also very excited.

Also, in July 1st, our in-lab Audio Precision will go back to add ultra-high bandwidth options and HDMI audio upgrades too. And they gave us a free calibration. ;-)

So when AP comes back, we will use the refresh nice unit to test the whole numbers and let you know the results.

Stay tuned.

Cheers,

Femto Clock power circuit is done. I'm super happy for the result.

I'm fine tuning the Geek Pulse Standard and S's power rail supply, I saw slightly more noise on negative part.
We need to dig out the reason.

For Geek Pulse X, it has even better CMRR. But I will still need to check with the negative supply too.

Remaining topics: Headphone 3 segment Gain Switching. And long time stress test.

Next week, my target is to program the automatic Audio Precision Test Scrip to continuous measure FR, THD+N, THD+N vs Fs, THD+N vs Output frequency, SNR, DR and tons of other stuff.

Next next week, you guys could see a lot of nice looking test reports for this final production version.

Hi, there

Here is the summary of Femto clock progress.

1. Femto Clock Tested result already posted in forum... ;-)
2. Femto Clock driver and distribution topology confirmed.
3. High speed clock transmission line and impedance control @ 50Ohm complete
4. Power supply.... Larry is tweaking and make it better.

Listening test with Geek Pulse X and Geek Pulse S has been completed in past two weekends.
Larry is enjoying so much... :P

Hello,

I attached a photo showing the LPS4 during thermal testing. There is a lot of energy we need to test. We continue testing this week.

Hi,

We have the final test run for LPS and LPS4... Both could pass 800mA loading test and heat stress test.

So congratulations, now we only need to burn it for one more week to see how it sounds. (it should be good)

If no problem, then we will start the production right away..... :cheer:

Hello,

We anxiously await the LightSpeed 1G Cable. After we complete the thoroughly detail test procedures, then we will start preparing SHIPPING!!!

LightSpeed 1G past the listening test. I compared with several nice cables I have. We are the winner, at least in my ear... smily_headphones1.gif

But LightSpeed 2G still not here yet. I think They need a little bit more time to make sure 2G speed test could pass our standard. Will keep you posted.

Hello,

Larry and Gavin have tested the 1G cable and we are pleased to report that it works great (as expected) : )

The 2G is on its way here and will be fully tested as well.

i try to avoid the LHlabs forum as much as possible. it's impossible to find anything there...thanks for posting the relevant bits, miceblue.

 

so back in january i mentioned that we'd realistically see the pulse in october/november. i don't think 2015 is beyond the realm of possibility, either. 

post #1750 of 1933

Mice,

 

great job. Thanks. I do get into the Geek force forum but that's very rare so this helps.

Just so you guys know in case you don't get the e-mails, LH is launching their Geek Source music server device in 20 minutes on the Geek Wave campaign.

We've developed a bit of a notoriety (or maybe we're just notorious) in the industry for pushing the envelope on product design and product features. Well, we're at it again.

We'd like you to meet Geek Source, the "soul mate" your Geek Wave & Geek Pulse are destined to be paired with.

As its name suggests, Geek Source is THE BEST music source in your home stereo. Geek Source is the most powerful and high-end music server available for under $1000. Not only does it pair perfectly with Geek Wave, but it was also specifically designed with Geek Pulse in mind. Talk about a two-fer!

We've utilized technology from Light Harmonic's Da Vinci Source, a project that we began working on in 2012 and unveiled at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, pairing it with our world-renowned Da Vinci DAC. The results were stellar.

Just like Geek Pulse's relationship with Da Vinci DAC, Geek Source's core design is directly derived from our soon to be released ultra high end music server: Da Vinci Source (MSRP $12,999). Same concept, same core technology, same development team, dramatically different price.

After wrapping up the Geek Pulse campaign, we realized the vast majority of audio enthusiasts were looking for a replacement for their computer-based music servers, usually a multi-media PC or Mac Mini. From this often overlooked necessity, Geek Source has been intelligently designed to be the last music server you'll ever need.

Geek Source Is A Feature Freak
  • Geek Source features a whopping 2TB (4TB optional) of internal hard drive storage space. That's enough space to store 5000+ Hi-Rez tracks or 50,000+ CD quality tracks!
  • Built in Double Phase Re-Clock Jitter Elimination circuit for all output digital circuits. Every digital output is precisely timed making it the perfect fit for any system that has a dedicated DAC.
  • Many of us have trouble playing FLAC or DSD files with iTunes. Fret no more. Geek Source is a high resolution music playing specialist. Looking to play FLAC, DSD, DSD2, DXD and 384K? Geek Source handles it all.
  • Dedicated USB audio class 2.0 output with a noise free power supply. This isn't your Grandpa's PC or MAC music server. Geek Source is a super high speed playback machine.
  • Less noise, more music. Geek Source has an external power supply, keeping the bad noise at bay while letting the good noise (your tasty tunes) in.

How Geek Source Works With Geek Pulse
Connect the USB cable from Geek Source to Geek Pulse and you're ready to rock. Best sounding combination under $3,000, no question about it.

How Geek Source Works With Geek Wave
Geek Source syncs with Geek Wave as a music storage source, backing up your music files onto Geek Source's hard drive. This is where it gets interesting, Geek Source features the ability to have analog playback while Geek Wave is synced to it, through your home stereo. Mind. Blown.

4real, I dont know what to think about this. Out and Pulse backer got angry when they launched the Wave campaign, because they start a new product when they havent finished yet the first ones. In Updates by Email LH wrote, that they dreamed about this perfect set of DAC products, a portable, a desktop unit, and a DAP. So they should be finished by now, having the geek, pulse and the wave. but out of the blue, there comes the source, and they expect to what,? people to pay around $1k blindly? again? 

Really, I cant wait to get the pulse s /f /i, but I wont be backing any more of these folks. I completely stopped trusting them.

Also, how hard can it be to ship so expensive stuff with an US certificate of origin for export for Canada, Israel etc...? 

I'm a backer of the Kickstarter Tubecore campaign, and he is shipping all of the units with this cert... When I opened a ticket on LH, the answer I got was:

Hello,

Our shipping policies are contracted thru our distribution department. I will bring this to their attention but I'm not sure if they will proceed with it . Its a totally different department and they do things they're own way but I will send them an email regarding your question.

Best Regards,
Carlos Jones
Light Harmonic

 



My questions was:

Please look into this thread,

 
 
I just filled out the pulse survey, and would like to know, if you will ship it with an US cert. for export to israel?
You know, the tubecore guy (also a kickstarter project) ships all his units with this cert., so maybe ask him how to do this:
 
 
thanks
post #1754 of 1933

I'm somewhat bewildered by this latest development too, as much as I desperately want LH Labs to succeed and produce great sounding products at fair prices, I wish that they'd concentrated on wrapping up their previous crowd funding campaigns before embarking on yet another one. In my opinion they should have stuck to producing what folks have already paid for, thereby satisfying customers and generating goodwill. Good as this new `Source' might be, it's going to really antagonize backers who are still waiting for their Pulse surveys to be sorted out. :mad:

I'll be passing on the Geek Source. For what it does and what I need it's a bit much. It did a wonderful job of getting my Wave the upgraded enclosure, and now I'm wondering what their next stretch goal is. Hopefully they don't skip the $666,666 marker like they did the $444,444, but I'm suspecting that they will.
