Light Harmonic Geek Out EM/1000 Impressions Thread - Page 48

post #706 of 2304

I mean I am not going to be able to get any of these soon but I have some one kind enough that will is sending me the Stoneraccoustics UD110 for now to be used for a while until I can another. Well I am hoping they send it out soon that is.

@ doctorjazz, speakers? Meaning internal? Because you could use both GO connections contemporarily.

No,have external powered Audioengine A2 connected to PC, but sound only comes from GO1k while it's connected.

how does the GO1000 (or GO450 for that matter) fare when fed to an amp (O2, magni, e.t.c) through the 47ohm line out?

My GO 450 sounds great out into my MiniWatt N3 tube amp with a headphone adaptor that then feeds my HE-5LE. Listening to that set-up now and loving it.

Because it runs on Exclusive Mode.

 

You can connect both to Geek Out. Your Audioengine A2 to line out (Large Headphone Icon) and your HP on the other. 

 

Just tested now. My Bluesky Media Desk on line-out and HD-25 on the other.

That occurred to me,but isn't the idea of the 2 sockets to be able to use either high or low impedance headphones? I know,you can unplug and replug as needed,but seems more difficult than it should be.

I know the Geek 1000 is more than capable of driving the LCD-2.  Has anyone tried the Geek 450 with LCD-2?

post #713 of 2304
I think the Geek 1000 should be a bare minimum for LCD-2. The LCDs generally need a full clean W of power at their impedance to sound their best which even the 1000 isn't able to provide.

yeah the Geek Out 1000 - from what I remember - does exactly 1 watt - 

which is why it BLEW me and away at CanJam at RMAF last year!

 

It drives my LCD-3s (OG) and my new LCD-2 w/ Fazor no problem!

The 1 W at 16 Ohms that the Geek Out provides (if I'm not wrong) should be something like 320 mW at 50 Ohms.

Yup, step up your game Mercer! :P

I'm not saying that they should sound bad from the Geek Out. But I consider the 1000 to be a bare minimum for the LCDs

I'd say they sound remarkably good with the GO1000 alone but also agree with your "bare minimum" statement. Planars love deep current reserves. Between listening to LCD2's through the GO1000 alone and adding my MC275, 75 watt/ch amp to the signal chain, there is simply no comparison

post #719 of 2304

I thought it was rated 32ohms not 16ohms.  I guess I assumed wrong.  Thanks.

new 450 owner

 

Can both outputs be used as line outputs when they are at full volume? I want to use one to a pre then to powered speakers and the other to a headphone amp.
