    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Looks like some Xfis are shipping. Great news. Just checked emails and I initially backed the Pulse (before upgrading later) under 13 minutes into the first night of the first campaign. Not sure how many snuck in earlier, nor how many of those upgraded to Xfis, but I should be pretty early on...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

      My point was it's ridiculous to talk price independent of quality expectations. And ahistorical to use subsequent price drops to indicate complaints made at launch. I was on the beta test and spent time with them early post-launch and although there were a variety of opinions (and still are)...

    FS: 2x Light Harmonic Geek Pulse Xfi & LPS

    As the year plus Light Harmonic Pulse campaign is coming to an end it's many changes sometimes swung it towards my expected use long ago and sometimes the opposite. Lately unfortunately the latter, so placing my 2 Geek Pulse Xfi & LPSs for sale. I've received the two LPSs, but not yet the Xfis...

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    In for one. Halfway to their goal in :30 and surprising few perk levels choosen. An awful lot of $199 and $239 'donations' though. Wonder what that could be?

    2013 Bay Area Headphone Meet & Headmasters (CAS4) Impressions Thread (8/9~8/11)

    I was very impressed by The Abyss (though I've love their design to begin to focus on human heads), however I'm not sure I'd walk away with solid impressions of a 009 v. Abyss comparison with the Cavalli amp. Nothing against it, just I've heard the 009 sound better (say about 15 feet to its...

    APEX PINNACLE OR TWO OF THESE : ECBA & DNA STRATUS/ CAVALLI LG/ RSA DARK STAR

    Have heard the Pinnacle several times, own the Peak-Volc and spent significant time with the Arete. Perhaps the most telling indication is a pro-Peak con-Pinn position. Sounds like a issue in the chain to me.

    Sennheiser HDVD800 Headphone Amplifier

    Hopefully you're right, but keep in mind the motives of Grado, AT, Beyer, etc. were likely similar. And damn, I wish HF was more mobile friendly.

    Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

      Quote:   Not to answer for Kiritz, but he may have thought along my lines (and was a response to my spdif post). If a spdif to hdmi adapter isn't a realistic solution (and it doesn't appear to be, though there are still a few - though surprisingly few - devices out there) and if...

    Anywhere I can legally download new album releases in 320KBPS and up?

    MOG (or Spotify) Mobile allows you to download albums, in most cases (especially on MOG) 320kbps. As a service they aren't yours to keep though. Then again they're $9.99 a month.

    Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

    Quote:   Thanks SS. It appears the hdmi input/output is the only option for what they're calling a "pass through," thus hdmi in (only digital in) and toslink out may result in a resampling. This somewhat makes sense - having a stable 24/176.4-192 optical signal is unlikely so some safe...

    Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

    Is anyone using a laptop, Airport Express, Squeezebox, etc.and a spdif to hdmi converter to load the Realiser through hdmi? With the Realisers 24/48 bitrate limitation trying to figure out if transport to converter to (digital in) Realiser to ext dac to amp or transport to ext dac to (analog in)...
