Geek Wave, a hi-fi audio player that hasn’t received much press, has raised $1,323,073 on Indiegogo. Their original funding goal was $38,000.
This player is a competitor to the Pono Player. Pono raised over $6.2 million on Kickstarter, but has recently made some concerning executive shuffles.
Geek Wave offers “the highest resolution audio available”, supporting up to 32 bit / 384 kHz plus DSD 128. It also features ten processor cores and interchangeable batteries.
The minimum amount of internal storage available in a Geek Wave is 32 GB. This can be upgraded to 128 GB. The device also includes an SDXC port, supporting up to 2 TB of additional storage.
The Geek Wave device also offers smartphone and tablet control via bluetooth.
Geek Wave was available at the starting price of $167 for 32 GB, but now that the campaign has ended only 64 GB and 128 GB models will be sold.
