“Geek Pulse” provides superb sound quality from a wide range of high-resolution formats, in an easy-to-use plug-and-play device. “Pulse”‘s DAC natively decodes PCM files up to 32-bit/384kHz, as well as native decoding of DSD64 and DSD128 files, and features the Patent-Pending 3L buffer introduced by Light Harmonic in Da Vinci DAC. The amplifier is pure Class-A, utilizing a super-quiet DC power supply to produce 3,000 milliwatts of clean power, enough to drive even the most insane headphones, as well as quality desktop speakers.
Connectivity is class-leading: inputs include 1-USB 2.0, 1-Toslink, and 2-S/PDIF RCAs; outputs are a 1/4’ headphone jack on the front, and a pair of gold-plated RCA line-out jacks on the back.
“We were so happy that people liked ‘Geek Out’,” said Larry Ho, CEO of Light Harmonic. “Our backers said they wanted a desktop unit, and so we are happy to give it to them with ‘Pulse’. We will have even bigger surprises in this next year.”
“We expect our backers will help us to make ‘Pulse’ even better than it already is,” said Fish. “And it’s already as good as anything being made today.” The Indiegogo campaign for “Geek Pulse” went live at at 12:00 AM, PST on Tuesday, October 29th and runs through December 20th, 2013.
Since its inception in 2008, Indiegogo has raised millions of dollars for thousands of projects. Initially geared to the independent film industry, the site expanded in 2009 to include all industries and types of fundraising projects.
“Our last campaign showed us that as smart as we think we are, our backers are smarter,” said Fish. “We can’t wait to see what they teach us during the launch of ‘Geek Pulse’.”
