HA HA HA!
If that is the case it will be an early Christmas treat for me!
Well I hopped on this at the early bird price. You'd think with how many hours I browse head-fi every day, I'd have known about this early enough to get into super early bird but I guess you can't read every thread :P Main thing that drew me to it is the positive reaction to the geek out in the head-fi meet threads and the emphasis on having a good usb input, since that's my input of choice. Also supporting every bitrate and dsd, I feel like that's what I need to upgrade from my hifimediy dac which seems to do everything I need it to.
I guess having the external PSU is a good choice because they can use a smaller enclosure with less heat generated by the psu being inside and that saves money for other components
Ordered! Waiting patiently :)
I guess Geek Pulse doesn't need the USB power from the computer right? Is it possible to add a small switch to disconnect the USB power from the computer? Or maybe just disconnect the USB power pin permanently since they are not required for Geek Pulse to operate?
Some people said it will lower the noise hence improves the sound quality.
