FYI. Another Update and Stretch goal, $888,888 coming soon....

I am kind of interested but the whole perks thing is hard to fathom. If i go for  top of the range 128 does that have everything.

 

I think it would be very helpful if they re arranged the web site to show models and total pricing for each model.

Lol that's the whole point of LH - spinning it positively one would say it give you freedom to pick and choose and tailor the Wave for your unique sets of requirement and you don't need to pay more than what you need.

Spinning it negatively one would say the point is like bait and switch to try to lure you in with an apparently amazing deal, and then start to milk you for features that should have been there or most would want but at a considerable increase of the price, and spend much more than one initially set out to.

I'm seeing merit in both arguments, but I know how little self constraint I have when it come to headfi gears I m much more likely to be overspending then achieving savings with this approach. YMMV.

Well, I think there would be much less confuses/complaints/etc if they gather requirements and finalize all the perks before starting the crowdfunding instead.

As we all know, this is not their first crowdfunding project :D

I won't be making a commitment until i see it simplified. I want to, but not presented the way it is.

I didnt know spending 1k+ for a DAP could be this complicated...maybe i am not smart enough for this crowdsourcing thing

This is what I thought up to last week, when they blocked some upgrades for Wave32 (2nd SD card slot and Bluetooth), only to push people to switch to the higher/more expensive models (Wave 32 & 64 have same PCB, only different memory size, so there is no technical reason to "block" these upgrades).

Since that move, the above statement is not valid anymore, at least IMHO.

I put an order out for the 32gb version. I'll probably be using mostly iems (Philips Fidelio S2 now, Sennheiser IE800 possibly in the future), occasionally Sennheiser Momentums and maybe Fostex TH900. Should I also order the Special IEM configuration, or would the regular version work just fine?

Since you're planning on using a range of headphones and not just IEMs you'd be better off going with the THD upgrade over the IEM. Larry Ho has said so himself that the IEM package is meant for people who plan to use the Wave with high sensitivity IEMs only. The THD upgrade can benefit your headphones across the board whereas the IEM upgrade may require you to have additional amping when traveling.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind!

I started going through this thread and now I'm a bit confused. So just to clarify; is Wave a proper stand alone music player, or does it have to be connected to a mobile phone in order to work?

It's a standalone DAP that has the option of connecting to a Phone via bluetooth for control. The original campaign was a device that required a phone to connect, but they changed that for the relaunch and made it into a much more versatile device.

I supported them with some donations, hope it really is a game changer.

That's a relief. I went with the Dual ESS DAC upgrade. High quality DAP for a bit over 200€, when it finally arrives I'll be a happy camper.
