No matter how good a set of headphones are, their portable nature also ends up being a limiting factor in terms of audio quality. Improving it can require either additional bulk or significant cost. But what about a happy medium that doesn’t suck?
Up on Kickstarter right now is the Geek, a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) that you can bring with you anywhere to amp up your music, videos, and games. And you won’t have to sell your soul or future children to afford it either!
Geek is the brainchild of Gavin Fish, who specializes in high-end audio equipment at Light Harmonic, located in Sacramento CA.
They are known for creating the Da Vinci DAC, which is known world-wide for its quality. Geek takes that technology, shrinks it down, adds USB so you can use it with your computers, and makes it affordable.
Digital to analog converters are built in anything that produces sound for us to hear. Geek amplifies that signal to make it louder and better. It can also play high-resolution audio, a feat rarely matched by typical PC and laptop computers.
Why would you want Geek? Becuase you love and appreciate your music. You deserve to hear all the intricacies and nuances of songs, or movies, or video games. You demand more and now you can have it.
Visit the Geek Kickstarter page for more information and to pledge for your very own awesomefier. Give your headphones and music a little bit of love.
