Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics - Page 508

post #7606 of 12013
Just received the XFI Infinity ( moments ago ) and my LPS ( last year ).
Using USB and testing using my Monoprice headphones. So far so good.
Hifiman HE500 , Medium gain 0 db just nice. ( bit perfect )

When this happen, you just need to select back USB from the input menu on the pulse.

 

It's the unit going out of sync with the computer, nothing to worry about.

 

Unless you mean the headphones are actually dead, which I would be quite surprised to hear. You tried it with the other amp and it still didn't work? If it is the case, I'm pretty sure it's LHLabs responsibility to replace your headphones.

 

Yes, the headphone's right driver is actually dead (I checked with him).

Well, that was also my feeling several months ago, and why I was happy to wait until now to get my Pulse. Still loving the sound, but hope these firmware issues are resolved soon (assuming that's all they are).

In that case, it is indeed LHLabs responsibility since he used the geek pulse in the correct fashion and it caused damage to his property.

True...from Larry's posts in the Geek Force though, it looks like they're more focused on optimising the Femto Time Mode. >.>

Same here. I can't let next year's Geekout v3 outshine my infinity!
Yeah that too. By the time the Infinity new chassis comes out, there will probably be a Pulse v2 for all we know and they'll claim that they've had an EP2 for the past year or so. :/

Meanwhile JDS Labs is going to announce a desktop amp(/DAC?), codename Element, next month.

The FTM digital mode on my Pulse FI sounds exactly the same as the TCM. Is it because the firmware for Pulse FI has not been updated and there's no FTM mode for Pulse FI?

If true, that's disappointing to hear, at least from my own (selfish) perspective given that I don't have a femto. And even so, I would think it would be more prudent to get the basic firmware functions (input switching, sample rate switching, volume control glitches, etc.) for all variations working correctly before worrying about optimizing the FTM.

I second this! (and I am a infinity backer) ,I couldn't care less about Femto Time Mode if there is still a chance the amp kills my headphones and my ears.... Priorities people!

My infinity has no problems smily_headphones1.gif

Single Ended

RCA out to my Tube Amp.

Yes I"m a happy customer. At least it is a happy ending for me albeit turn around time is abit long.

The FI has femto clocks in it so it should have FTM enabled.

 

Apparently, there is a slight gap or click or whatever when switching modes that is not present when that mode is just a dummy so if the music is seamless with no break at all, then I think it would mean that FTM isn't enabled.

 

If there is a slight gap or pause or click when switching modes but you can't hear any other difference, it probably means either the music or your ears don't care about slight differences in filters or jitter performance between the two modes so I wouldn't worry about it.

 

To be honest I upgraded all the way to the Infinity because I bought into the LHL story and the hype and I wouldn't be surprised at all if I couldn't hear any differences whatsoever either. I mean the clocks are already regenerated internally on the Pulse, and the data already get rebuffered using their triple buffer technology, so why should FTM make a difference? (theoretically though, doesn't their triple buffer mean there will be a degree of lag for real time applications?)
