Anyone know the output impedance for the pulse? The indiegogo page says it cab drive iems so I assume it can go extremely low.

Woah, that looks incredibly nice! Too bad it can't fit on my desk though, as mentioned ^.

Here's for hoping that the non-Soul units can get some sort of aesthetic makeover since the Soul makes the Pulse look like a cheap audio product. >.>


Say, whatever happened to the idea of having LEDs around the volume knob for volume level indication? There was quite a large discussion about that both in terms of how it'll be implemented and how it'll be incorporated into the design. It just disappeared off the face of the earth as far as I'm concerned. Something like this:

Wow. I don't know about putting that on my desk next to my headphone amp, but it would look great in TOTL 2 ch rig...

Geek Soul is optimized for rack based systems. For desktop we have Geek Pulse.

In fact Larry said Pulse+LPS and Pulse Xfi+LPS has very little difference to Geek Soul and Soul Xfi respectively. Only Soul Tube with its TBO is different. But again it depends on preferences...

Thanks Mickey. 
I have the Pulse on order. I'm going to have to look into the LPS...

Got Xfi versions of both Pulse and Soul coming, one for the office and the other for the entertainment system. Before the Pulse's look changed from post-modern dynamic to plain brick, I'd planned on it taking up some desk space, but now will put it on a shelf in the return next to the desk. Yeah, I like unusual shapes -- one of the reasons the current Soul design attracts me.

I'm a bit torn, though, about where to put the Soul -- it rightfully belongs top center of the console rack where my preamp/controller now sits, but don't think I'll enjoy the wild reflections when the big screen above is turned on. So, either put it on the shelf below the preamp/controller or put it on top and cover it with a black cloth

If LH labs is listening..... again, it would be nice to offer a trade-up option for a redesigned chassis for the Pulse even if it means shelling out additional funds at a reasonable cost.
