I'd like to have your optimism.

It's par for the course at this point, so many delays, I've just about lost count.

I get all that. But don't give yourself a one week delay and give people hopes if you know damn well you can't make it.

 

The product might be mighty fine and very well engineered, but the logistical and customer service flaws at LHLabs are astounding.

I have to agree, and lets hope these are the FINAL delays.

 

No more excuses, the west coast port work stoppage is over, the packaging has been delivered, the new PCB fabrication production run was shipped... and while all of those delays seem legit/largely beyond LH Labs' control, the prior 6 months of nothing happening except the Aperkolypse were more than just frustrating.

So for the few of us, SFi backers, it looks like we might get it by the end of July if we are lucky. Like many, after the upset, I have completely lost interest in LH Labs and their products.

It will come when it comes and then go straight to sale forum and I will very likely make a significant loss on the sale despite being an early backer. 

Well, you live and learn....;)

So I take it that the "forever funders" will not see their Pulses until the end of summer into fall, maybe next winter?

Any update on when we will get the Geek Pulse X?  Has anyone received their?

The "regular" X version is not in production yet. Not until the Xfi versions are complete.

 

Here is the link to the production progress report to give you an idea of the order of production/shipping.

Technical Support responded. My issue was due to trying to use it in an unsupported mode, unfortunately (I had a smart power switch that turned off power whenever the laptop was disconnected - looks like I will need to turn it on and off manually).

 
Compared to my previous stack, JoLida tube DAC and Schiit Asgard, the Pulse is a big step up. I am not good at writing very detailed audio impressions, but bottom line, the Pulse is a lot more refined. Music that was edgy on my previous rig is much smoother on the Pulse. Imaging is also improved. I feel I am getting full performance from my Audeze for the first time. One important observation. During testing, I tried using the wall wart power supply rather than the Geek LPS. The Pulse lost a lot of its advantages in that configuration. If you get the Pulse, I strongly recommend also getting an LPS.

Thank you for the link!

Glad to see the shipping of the Pulse is 95% complete. 

Can we expect this batch to be bug free?

So how is it now Bro?

post #6584 of 12011

It works great with the orthodynamic cans - Audez'e LCD-X really sounds great. The upper end in particular just opened up a tad more than I hear it from my Gungnir/Mojo combo. Having owned the HE 500 previously, I assume it will work very well with most Hifiman HPs (I say most since I need to test it with my HE 6 but that's a different beast altogether). Frankly, its not that great with the HD 800. No amount of twiddling around with the settings helped in getting the SQ and the overall experience I get when I use the 800 with the Zana Deux/BH Crack. I will try the Beyer T1 next to see if there is an overall lack of synergy with the high impedance HPs.

 

The FTM filter is by far the best choice for the filter (of course one needs to have the femto clock upgrade).

Well Larry says at least a week to open up. With the Femtos longer.

Happy for you Bro! Enjoy! Guess need more patience for the Infinity w/ AQ2M.
