Gavin Fish is Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Light Harmonic. Light Harmonic is the company behind the Da Vinci digital-to-analog converter (DAC).
A Da Vinci DAC is a five-figure device reserved for the most ardent (and well-to-do) music lovers. Now Light Harmonic has taken aim at the 99 percenters with the GEEK, which is already fully-funded on Kickstarter.
The GEEK is a USB DAC that essentially acts as an amplifier for audio. The stated problem lies in consumers buying expensive headphones and plugging them into a standard headphone jack for use. It’s like putting 87 pump gas in a Ferrari.
The GEEK’s amplifier is said to be 10 times more powerful than a standard jack. The audio is translated in the way that your ears optimally hear sound. The device even has two jacks, allowing two people to share one music experience.
The market seems to love it. All early bird units have been claimed and backers are jumping into the $159 reward tier at a high rate. This includes one of the units. Thus far over 1,200 backers have contributed over $185,000.
As far as the likelihood of delivery, the device is backed by a big name in the audio world. Backers should rest easy knowing their device should make it out eventually because of this. Of course there is always risk, but a company like Light Harmonic can ill-afford a delivery fiasco.
