    Has the after-sales service for Geek Out improved? I'm really tempted to pick up a GO2V+ but struggling to justify the service and cost vs the Schiit Fulla2.

    I actually just got mine today! Sound SE end is audibly clearer with some basic elCheapo headphones than the output on my LG v20. Color me impress, though when you switch to Firmware 2.1 how do you adjust the gain

    That balanced output is odd... first time I listened to it... too much bass... sounded terrible, second time around... not as bad? Maybe I just adjusted to how this headphone sounds

    Would there be any benefit to running a GOV2 out of a usb hub with an external power source? Just curious how a cleaner power source might affect this little amp

    I've noticed when using a Mojo and GOV2A on the same hub they generated audible noise. Moving the GOV2 to a powered hub cleaned it up. However aside from not playing nice with Mojo I've heard no difference whether on a separate hub or not.

    Fair enough, my bus powered hub definitely seems to sound less clean than a direct usb so I may give an external power hub a shot.

    Sneezing in the same postal district generates noise on a Mojo, at least. It's possibly the worst RF rejection both down cables and from the air that I've ever seen in a commercial product of any cost. Shockingly poor.

    Don't forget that infernal buzzing when it charges.

    Or the overheating and shutting down when using it plugged into power and charging?

    From what I understand, you can send in your 2A and pay the upgrade fee (probably around $300) (the difference between the Signature and your current unit) to get the Signature internal components put in.

    If I am not mistaken, you are a single human now employed by LH Labs yet have two user IDs here on SBAF, and this synthwavefan ID post has no clear tags as a MOT, while your other @LHCommSquad reports on "official" LH Labs progress.

    thus your synthwavefan posting here to recommend that users should upgrade is
    insider-trading at best as it "appears" to come from an independent third party, when indeed it does not.

    mods like @zerodeefex and @sorrodje should be alerted to you posting under two different IDs and demand a consolidation in your posting methods as a step towards transparency.

    If I am wrong about any of the above, well. prove it.

    Boy, I keep getting accused of a litany of things --- first doctoring photographs, now insider trading. You're welcome to whatever action you feel is necessary. However, I did not "recommend" any course of action, and yes, I have two different names, and pretty much everyone here knows it, and it has nothing to do with anything other than I logged in with whatever one my computer threw up at me. I think I went with the non-LH Labs screen name because I was actually posting about Schiit gear I own. Again, you're welcome to any course of action you feel is necessary if you feel I am trying to "insider-trade" here. (also, you can't prove a negative, so how am I to prove I am doing nothing insidious? You have the burden of proof that I am trying to sneakily and dishonestly drum up business) And I'll happily discuss my intentions or non-intentions with the @zerodeefex and @sorrodje. I have to discuss my package I just bought off Sorrodje anyway, and I should probably also discuss with @zerodeefex some LH business.
