    Yes, at your own expense.

    Yeah, pretty much. 
    1. A new heat and air-flow optimized T-6061 Aluminum chassis with non-parallel walls that was inspired by Da Vinci DAC's industrial design.
    2. An ultra-low-noise bipolar power circuit.

    Not sure if the second point is brought in from the LPS or not.

    Soul is more than just a DAC, it's an all-in-one chassis containing:
    the DAC + Headphone Amp (solid state), LPS, balanced output (solid state) and single-ended outputs (SS in Geek Soul or Tubes in Geek Soul Tube).

    Geek Soul Tube:
    From IGG page
    Geek Soul Tube
    Tube lover, eh? Yeah, you are. What we've done here is replaced the single-ended output from Geek Soul Xfi with a single-ended no-negative feedback tube buffer stage.
    Larry has indicated that the Balanced XLR output, on the Soul Tube, will be solid state just like the Soul Xfi and Pulse Xfi so on the Soul Tube version.

    Geek Soul, to Tube or not ?!
    And one thing I don't know if I write clearly enough here:

    Geek Soul Tube will give you the flexibility of both Solid State and Tube. Matching SS with Balance and Tubes with SE is the way to go. If you don't like the tube, you could un-plug it and using balance out of Geek Soul Tube, no problem.
    And vise versa. [​IMG]

    Also, I want to confirm that again. In SQ point of view, Geek Soul X fi will be exactly the same like Geek Pulse X fi.


    Single Ended RCAs = Tube Output
    Balanced XLRs = Solid State Output

    Am I the only one who just wants my plain vanilla Pulse? You know, the original idea of a good quality DAC and headphone amp for a reasonable price? [​IMG]
    It's now been over a year since I put up my cash, and I'm hoping they'll actually ship soon. I'll leave the fancy $2K tube models to those of fatter pocketbooks and more rarified ears....

    The good news for you is the simple vanilla Pulse is the model destined to start shipping Nov 14.
  6. krikor
    Nope, you are not the only one. I don't know how, but I was able to resist the urge to take advantage of the seemingly endless stream of upgrades and perks.

    I certainly hope that is the case! The post on the forum about still needing a screw and a sticker makes me wonder...
  8. jwong
    Ah, greetings fellow holdout! I must admit I got pretty tempted a few times along the way as well.

    Sticker? I certainly hope it's not one of these stickers...they annoy the heck out of me.

    Or maybe one of those Windows computer stickers lol

    Some people like stickers. You have seen those laptops around school I'm sure miceblue. Put some rainbow and star stickers on your pulse and LPS!

    I have a Apple sticker on my Lenovo laptop, and it annoys people to no end. [​IMG]

    I am with youn, man.  I just want a vanilla pulse.

    Geek Soul prototyping...
    No surface finish yet, rougly milled.

    The chassis does look pretty cool, if I was a high roller I'd have upgraded already :p

    Note that Geek Soul will not have a SE headphone output, and the balanced headphone output may be placed on the side or even on the back since Geek Soul is not primarily targeted for headphone listening.
