Light Harmonic Geek Out EM/1000 Impressions Thread - Page 16

post #226 of 2304
Dear MikeyFresh,

Thanks for the explanation. For a layman like me, I think I know what you are saying. All I know is that though it is now half an hour to midnight here in Singapore, I am now for the first time seeing the blue DSD light on the GO1000 which I received just two days ago. It switches faultlessly with FLAC songs too.

Once again, my sincere thanks.

George

That's really great, I'm glad to assist.

 

I LOVE the global aspect of this forum, on Saturday morning in New York I have helped you enjoy the last half hour of Saturday evening in Singapore.

 

That's what it's all about, those Koch and Loesch pieces can wait for another time, or maybe never.

Weird, I didn't have any sticker on the back of silver geek out 1000 when I received it yesterday.

Does that mean I received another version of geek out instead?

Sometimes the inter web (!) is worth it, over and above some of the trolls and people giving their ONE cents worth.

So the two remaining issues with the GO1000 are:
1. Heat - good for people in NY I suppose
2. The way the volume jumps up everytime I use the Audirvana+ volume to turn down then go back up. So I leave the A+ at max and adjust using the very hot GO1000 volume buttons.

Anyway these are minor problems now that I've got the DSD input right thanks to you.

And it is now Sunday morning officially here and I'm rocking to Deep Purple.

Thanks again.

Is your serial number etched onto the case? Also, is it human readable.

Vaunix Lab Brick USB Hub -> Slacker w/ Shakti On Lines -> LH Labs GO 1000(EM)

 

Today I removed the iFi iUSBPower from the chain, and added the Vaunix Lab Brick USB Hub.

 

My initial impression is each device has a very similar effect on sound quality in my particular system, enhanced stereo image size and focus, slightly greater bass weight and agility, improved dynamic contrast.

is anyone here gonna back the geek wave over on indiegogo? i'm kinda tempted to just keep my hrt microstreamer and back the geek wave instead... i guess i could swing both possibly.

post #233 of 2304
I am in for Wave iPhone. Feature set appears to easily favor the Wave, and based on early Geek Out reports audio quality (and amp power) should out perform micro streamer.

I'm going to wait until I get my other Geek products before investing in a third one. The Geek Out has barely even begun shipping out...
post #235 of 2304

yeah, i kind of don't wanna wait until november (and that would be at the earliest) for the geek wave. but it seems like a great product and i was thinking of getting an ibasso dx90 for portable purposes and that's $420... and the geek wave seems like such a great idea. battery, 256 gigs of storage, dac/amp. really a killer idea.

That thing looks sweet but the fiio e18 is less than half the early bird price...

you realize they're on completely different levels, right? the fiio e18 isn't an external battery for your phone and it also doesn't have 256 gigs of storage... not to mention the dac/amp section on the wave is clearly going to be better.

EDIT:

my bad, didn't realize you could use the e18 as an external battery as well. but it's still a whole lot better from what i can see.

All I see on the indiegogo page is a lot of marketing talk so its hard for me to tell if its on another level. The e18 is the most obvious competition and its not on the comparison chart, which makes me wary.

Anyhow, not the thread for this discussion. I'm excited to hear more about the GO since that will be a better indication on how the other products will fare.
