Geek Out V2 Portable Digital to Analog Converter & Headphone Amplifier Surpasses Original Funding Goal by 700%

Roseville, CA: With the announcement of major refinements to their highly reviewed and award winning Geek Out product line, LH Labs released their latest revision, Geek Out V2, which has already brought in over $200,000 in pre-orders in a matter of only 23 days. No stranger to the crowdfunding arena, LH Labs has successfully raised over $6,000,000 with their products through crowdfunding in the past year and a half.    

LH Labs, a subsidiary of Light Harmonic, maker of the world renowned Da Vinci DAC, focuses their product designs and features on what their customers request. In order to better leverage their relationship with end users, they turned to crowdfunding to validate their product ideas and take feedback from the public prior to release.

“First and foremost, the products we develop in concert with our backers (AKA “crowd-designing”) end up being closer to what the market actually wants in a product,” said Gavin Fish, VP of Sales & Marketing on why they continue to pursue crowdfunding to launch their products. “Market researchers can talk to me until they’re blue in the face about focus groups, surveys, and market studies, but until someone tells you exactly what they want by handing over a not-so-small chunk of change, you don’t have meaningful market data.”

The most notable difference between this current pre-sales event, in lieu of a crowd-designing and crowdfunding campaign, is that Geek Out V2 will bypass the crowd-design phase and be available for immediate delivery after the Indiegogo campaign is completed in July, thereby appealing to a consumer base that would otherwise be uninterested in a lengthy product development cycle or delivery schedule.

By utilizing not only its website, but Indiegogo for pre-orders as well, LH Labs has been able to broaden its reach outside of the niche audiophile market and appeal to consumers who would otherwise have limited exposure to the world of high-resolution audio.

Built on the award-winning foundation of their original Geek Out, their latest release, Geek Out V2, paves the way for the future of the premium portable DAC & headphone amplifier experience:

  • Utilizing the latest 3D printing technology available, Geek Out V2’s chassis allows for the ability to radically optimize the form factor and design aspects that would have otherwise been impossible using traditional manufacturing methods.
  • Geek Out V2 is designed using the same principles found in their flagship product, Da Vinci DAC, and is capable of playing ultra high resolution audio up to 32 bit / 384 kHz & DSD128 natively.
  • Geek Out V2 is the most powerful family of portable USB headphone amplifiers on the market, pumping out the power in pure Class A, the gold standard of amplification in the audiophile community.
  • Geek Out V2 features multiple analog gain settings which solves the problem of deciding which output level will work best for its users' ever expanding headphone collections. With selectable gain settings of 1000mW, 450mW & 100mW, Geek Out V2 pairs perfectly with monstrous power hungry cans or incredibly sensitive in-ear-monitors.

The Geek Out V2 is set to begin shipping shortly after the Indiegogo campaign wraps up on July 1st, 2015.
