^ Not I.
Nor any email confirmation when the pre order would ship.
I honestly am training my brain to forget the GO450 order in order to be less disappointed as delays happen.

I understood they wouldn't ship until May 1st, but I haven't been paying close attention...

 

Thanks!

Thanks for this reply - at least I know I'm not alone, but I find their "take the money and say nothing" approach rather disappointing. Not what I expected.

 

I'm really good at being told "It will ship in six weeks" then going away and forgetting about it.  Silence I don't handle so well.

Thanks! I will...

I sent an email a while back and was told they should be shipped last week and into this week. But given that this may have been while they were inundated with emails it is possible that I was given the shipping dates for the kickstarter geek outs instead. I'm with you though in that I have had nothing since the transaction over paypal.

I just got mine!

I am replacing an Audioengine D1 that cost me $160 when it came out. Amazing how much better hardware you can get now for roughly the same price (I actually bought it at KS pre-order price!)  The GO 450 eats it for breakfast! I am loving it!! Amazing! Still on honeymoon period with it! Everything is exclamation points right now! need more time for my mind to settle down from all the excitement!

I have a galaxy note 2, and like everyone else here geek out 450 did not work with my device when other USB DACs did. I posted this on the lhlabs forums detailing my problem (my DSD light was on, just like another person on here).

 

Larry responded, saying that this is definitely a firmware issue in the Geek Out and the team at lhlabs is trying to solve the problem.

 

do you have a link pleaes?

Congratulations!  Were you a Kickstarter supporter -or- did you recently pre-order the Geek Out?

 

(I've not yet received a response to the e-mail inquiry I sent to cs@lhlabs.com, yesterday (but it has only been 12 hours...)

 

Thanks!

I bought if from another user who was a backer. I would have liked to be a KS supporter but came in late to the party. I do am a PulseX backer for a fully tricked out unit. I didn't buy the combo because for me it was either the combo with the GO or the LPS and other upgrades. I put my money on the upgrades, so I feel lucky I was able to buy a 450 now, at a moment in which I could afford one.

Roger that - enjoy!

Does anybody have experience with the GO1000 driving Sennheiser HD800? Does the GO1000 have enough power? Is its resolution OK or the HD800 asks for more? Enough warm to balance the HD800 brightness?

I saw Larry Ho using this combo in the video, but I fear if the phones are too much for the little Geek Out?

GO1000 works great with the HD800's. Generally at about 65% of volume I am listening comfortably. 85% when I am enjoying rock or metal. The resolution is very good and improving as I get some hours on the unit. No worries on its ability.

Yes, several people do.

Thanks to both. What I really want to know is if the HD800 is "too much" for the GO1000? Or in other words, even though both units match well in balance (tonality), is the HD800 in a class too much above the GO1000 so that it would not be using its full potential?

Ultimately, you are wondering if a $299 retail Dac/Amp can bring the HD800 to full bloom.....

 

 

No....

 

 

It is a nice portable choice though. Considering I am running the HD800's through a fully tricked out Wyred 4 Sound DAC2 DSDse with Femto clock and a Cary SLI-80 fully modded out to F1 specs, the GO1000 cannot compete with that rig. However, I am not in the habit of taking those pieces on the road. The geek fits nicely in the backpack. More time with the HD800's is a good thing.

 

YMMV.....
