@Eli, I think we are talking about the same thing.  After unplugging and replugging the Geek, check the LH Control Panel.  Mine ALWAYS defaults to Master volume at 0dB but plays out of my phones at normal level.  BUT if you hit the UP button or 3D, it blasts to max.  So as I pointed out that's the danger.  It plays at a reasonable level (despite showing reset to 0dB for Master volume) but blasts to max if the physical button is pushed.

 

The designed behavior should be: GO will follow the computer's volume setting. When you press the buttons, it will change the volume setting values internally.

But when computer reset/change the volume settings, GO will follow that again and GIVE UP the original volume settings.

 

Don't know if this solves your issue.

 

And we got quite some good feedbacks how to make this volume control more 'easy' to understand and use. We will do that.

Our target time is three weeks and with the Android compatibility improvement in Firmware.

 

Once we done that, we will send out the update through Kickstarter campaign and Geek Force forum

Hi, we will get another customer service and technical support people very soon to resolve this temporarily overload situation.

 

The major reason for pre-order's delay was due to the last batch Chassis, we found the surface treatment issue. And we request they to re-do that ASAP. And this cause an unexpected delay for two weeks. 

 

My sincerely apology for your wait and thanks for your patience. 

 

Larry

 

Thanks for the clarification Larry!  :smile:

Their digital to analog circuitry should be the same (assuming the femtoclock upgrade also made the list), and using line out and some good cables, the audio output should be the same for any set-up.  However the geek wave will be battery powered while the geek pulse xf will use AC power, thus without further upgrades to the geek pulse (LPS and/or geek blue) the geek wave would be the better deal.  True pricing has yet to be set, but not only is the geek wave more versatile (portable and compatible with more operating systems iOS, OSX, Android, Windows) it also comes with onboard memory and the duet engine that was left out of the geek out and geek pulse. I was intrigued when some user reported using the geek out + ifi iusbpower together to reduce jitter from the computer thinking this could be a low cost alternative to the geek pulse + LPS set up for us that didn't manage/couldn't support the indiegogo project but it seems there is still better deals on the horizon.
I'm already in for all the various Geek projects, haven't heard there was a dual mono coming or planned, don't keep up with their site, though. Is this a real product in the works?

I got this aluminum heat sink from a local electronic store. I didn’t measure the dimension of the Geek Out before buying this heat sink but when I got home and put them together, the length is just nice. The best thing is it matches the colour of my silver Geek Out, as if they are manufactured from same block of aluminum.

 

After attaching the heat sink, I see a drop of 10C° (from 50C° to 40C°) in temperature with just passive cooling. It also dissipates heat faster when I turn on the air conditioning.

 

I need to get Velcro straps or some neat solution to secure the Geek Out on the heat sink to avoid scratching the surface from movement friction.

 

Hi, which store did you get this heatsink from? How much was it?

Quite a few people report back that after 7 ~ 10 days, the mid range warmth start to get there. 

 

Give this little guy sometime... ;-)

 

@Larry Ho  I don't have the GO.  

 

I'm trying to cancel my order - with no response yet to e-mail and voice mail.

 

PM sent.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

I got it from Jalan Pasar, Pudu. Price is quite reasonable. ;)

The GO1000, looks sad hanging there on the short cable supplied... Do you disconnect wham not in us, longer cable, if so, which?
post #504 of 2304

Like the small blue cables cosmetically but don't like that the cable connectors are twisted so that the cables want to turn the unit upside down. Twisted one a bunch to try and have the metal-braided shielding hold it in place with geek face-up but will probably source something else small...

I'd just like to let everyone know that LH has contacted me, honored my request to cancel my order for the GO 1000, and have already issued a refund to my PayPal account.

 

All is well - despite how overwhelmed they are, at the moment.

 

:D

Also didn't quite get the fix for the volume...I still periodically blast my ears inadvertently (my excuse for not hearing the missus when I'm to take out the garbage or something like that). What am I doing wrong?

You're trying to use it before the firmware upgrade has been published.

(I couldn't resist.)

I, too, would like to read a well-written treatise on how to avoid blasting your ears. I'm sure there are some do's and don'ts that can be followed for safe use, but it's all a blur to me.

on there forums they set up a pole as to what the consumers wanted out of the geek wave and and dual mono was number one, according to Larry Ho they have already created and run battery drain test on this version, it should be posted shortly on the indiegogo campaign
