You should be good, since the powered speakers aren't really drawing much power.

47 ohm for line out
0.47 ohm for headphones
post #724 of 1052

both would be line out

one for powered speakers and one for Project Ember headphone amp, just trying to figure out which one to use for which.

Or 47 ohm for high impedance headphones

I would think that you'd use the 47 ohm for the Project Ember and the .47 ohm for speakers, but I could be mistaken. The best choice may be to split the 47 ohm output to 2 sources.

Any experts want to chime in?

post #728 of 1052

Would the split degrade sound quality?

Does anyone else have the following issues (that I believe are related to each other)

 

1.) Volume control down button has no affect on anything.

 

2.) "3-D Awesome..." can not be turned on.

 

I'm assuming the button is either toast or something in firmware causes it to work whenever it feels like - because there are times that it does seem to work inconsistently.  Volume Up always works though, but the manner it works in is sometimes inconsistent too. Sometimes single jumps and sometimes full jumps to max.

Sounds like you need an RMA.  For upgrades/questions- I've had luck with an account on the Geek Force forum and submitting a support ticket.

Hi,

 

I think there must be a button got mechanical issues. Please open a ticket at www.LHLabs.com, and they will send you a new unit. 

 

Thank you,

Larry

Has anyone used a GO1000 with a 11" MacBook Air and with the music stored on an external HDD (not SSD)? I'm thinking of getting the 11" but I'm a bit concerned whether the 11" Air is powerful enough. A friend says it is fine with his 13" but I'm thinking more of the 11". Thanks.

^Yes, and I got some clicking and popping while using external HDD in one port with the GO in the other.  Prefers to run off the local flash memory. 

 

I love the form factor of the 11", but next time I will definitely upgrade the processor for photo editing and also just know that the 11" is a bit taxed if running off its USB power and trying to access external USB drives for music.  I need to do more testing plugged into the wall, but was hoping for an ultimately portable solution with my 1 or 2TB drives.  Got the Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB but it requires Web App interface to play things directly from the drive wirelessly and does not allow streaming to my music software.  I have to copy files to my local drive to use Audivana and the GO.  Almost...but not quite.

Thanks for the prompt reply. That's a bummer. That means I'll have to consider the 13" Air or the 13" MBP instead?

^Question: will you be using it mostly with the power adapter plugged in or off of the battery? I could try to test with adapter vs. off-battery.

Good thing about bigger Apple laptops is the ability to use SD cards. Also- the bigger laptops can have more powerful processors. Look at the number of cores the chip possibilities have. Will you be doing more intensive work on the machine or just surfing and email? Depends how you will use the machine and what is most important to you. For me the 11" has the best form factor for usability around the house and for travel. But next time I would beef up the specs if I stayed with it. Size is best for in-bed and on small tables/airplanes. Do wish it had the SD slot or that the Wireless plus drive could stream high-res files to software for my Geek Out but that takes the bigger machines. You have to figure out the machine that you will use the most. I can still go do photo editing on three other machines without any lag/issues. So that is not bad for me. If I were buying today, I'd be wrestling with the portability vs. ability to use ext. drive and Geek Out well. Next year I should have the Wave DAP and hopefully that's all I need to play any type of file easily/portably with decent storage plus card expandability.
