Lastly I am assuming if you order the unit, they take your money now, but you don't actually receive it until April or so? Sure sounds like a very nice dac though, that is for sure.

And because this is crowd funding, there is a chance that you will never receive anything for your money.  For this product from LHlabs, I'd say the chance of that happening are close to zero, but you never know.  This isn't a pre-order or other such purchase agreement.

Upped my contribution to get a Pulse X.  Kills me that I have to wait until May, but at least I have a GEEK Out coming in Jan to play with in addition to a Schiit Vali coming hopefully early next week.

wow man, it's like we're twins !   haha!

same situation here, based on all the good advice from experienced folks-

and the fun Vali listening at RMAF helped seal the decision as well.

Likewise. But gives me time to save up for a set of HD800's or LCD-2/X's.

Same for me.....saving. HD800 or LCD-X? Leaning on former. (They use it also for testing. Price/Aftermarket support)

Hmmph, didn't see this until just earlier today. I'm interested in getting a new DAC, so I think I might keep an eye on this, and make that remaining early bird pricing of course. :p

Wow!  Geek Pulse X has really piqued my curiosity here.  What about a better power source?  Is there anymore talk about that?  To me that would put this in the killer category!

post #413 of 12011

Sorry.  I misspoke.  Looks like they have the power source down.

As much as I like the LCD-X (my preferred Audeze), I still like the HD800 best.  Only real reason I could see to go ortho is if you needed more bass (I do not think the HD800 is bass light, it is bass neutral).

 

And I also like that LHlabs is using the HD800 as a reference.  Hopefully this means that the Pulse doesn't end up too cold or analytical.

@Icenine2 - They will be having a Linear Power Supply as option. Bundled is a universal SMPS.

 

@FraGGleR - Been reading and reading... Yep, HD800 is for me and esp. on the music I listen to. A plus that LHlabs people uses it also for testing.

 

I'm not a designer. Just killing time today with Photoshop.

But my preference would be along Schiit/Mac like. May be if I have time again...

 Looks fantastic!   Better than the proposed faceplate.  Is yours about the same size?

Personally, I don't like the colours - but everything else looks amazing.  Well done !  Love the idea of using seperate PCM and DSD lights with a simple 44.1, 48, 1x, 2x, 4x arrangement etc.

Rough Draft..

 

Power/DSD/PCM indicator is at Volume (Changes Color, PCM - Amber, DSD - Blue).

 

Other LED colors - Off White

 

3 Buttons (Source, 3D, Gain)

When Source is depressed, overrides LED Sample Rate to choose Input.

3D LED lights up when on.
