Where's the price?

I'm voting to bring this one back!
Scratch that. Just got mine in the mail today :) #firstworldfears Not complaining but I hope Massdrop could explore giving internationals an option to pay a little more for Priority. First class was scary.. Nevertheless, still happy that it arrived safely!
@ siluro: I'm able to select 384 from setup. Audirvana shows it too.
I received it 1 week ago.
Hey, has anyone outside the US receive their GO in the last drop already? My tracking's been the same since 12 Sep: "Processed Through Sort Facility ISC LOS ANGELES CA (USPS)". Should I be worried?
Has anyone been able to get 384 kHz working? I haven't been able to find a way to select that mode. My max is 192khz/32bit.
Hey everyone,
We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out!
Thanks again for the support guys. Make sure to share your experience with the Geek Out 720 USB DAC/Amp on Massdrop.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to email us at support@massdrop.com.
Same here. Loving it.
FYI, my GO720 just showed up in the mail via Priority USPS. I am in San Diego, CA.
Hey everyone,
We placed the order for The Geek Out 720 USB DAC/Amp MD shortly after the drop ended.
Our vendor will be preparing it for shipment.
The moment we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you guys with updated information.
Expect an update from us on 9/12 or sooner if something comes up.
Cheers!

Thanks for the added info. Hope it wont be any later (I mean shipping)...
So as a first time buyer, how does the fulfillment work? How long until the product is shipped?Do we get notification and a tracking number when shipped? Where is it shipping from - MassDrop/Manufacturer, US/International? Do we potentially face tariff/customs or tax costs?

At the bottom of the "description" tab:
"Shipping Domestic and international orders will be shipped by Massdrop. Estimated shipping date: September 9th, 2014. After the drop ends, check the discussion page for updates."

Thanks

Oh, ok. You just need to acquire "vendor" status at MD to avoid this sort of confusion in future
We, as in me, thank you for putting out a wonderful product and allowing us to purchase it here for such a great price. Can't wait for the Wave to hit.
Congrats everyone for your new GO 720...
Wow, what a great deal. The original Kickstarter GO450 perk was $99.99. This makes up for missing the initial campaign.
I already received my GO720 as part of my IndieGoGo bundle and to have another at this price is amazing. To get this degree of musical fidelity at an entry level price (less than an iPod) is just incredible.
Re price/drop.
We don't have a policy about this but it's never happened that a few cancellations affected the final tier. Every time a few people cancel, others join before the drop ends and it just solves itself. If that didn't happen we would probably buy a couple for staff here to honor the lowest price- no worries!

That's a great stance to take. Makes me happy to be a Massdrop supporter.

I was part of a Beyer T1 drop sometime last year that hit the min drop, completed, and I paid for that amount, only to see the following day there was one less person in the drop. As far as I could tell, I wasn't charge any extra, it just shows the next lowest price as the final price.
"Error processing credit card payment." Any thoughts? I really need this...

PayPal?
No shipping to Brazil? why? I always receive everything perfectly (3 months later) but its ok..
Massdrop doesn't charge until the drop is over. At that point you'll get charged the lowest price. If you've committed to join at a certain price and that isn't reached then Massdrop shouldn't end up charging for it.
It's a rare scenario where the lowest price is reached and it goes back up again, this being the first time I've seen it happen. I would imagine if that in those situations you wouldn't be charged since it didn't reach the price you agreed to when you committed. But since the drop is currently sitting at 46 people then it shouldn't be an issue this time.
@ Darin Fong - Class act, sir.

Apparently, there are 45 people in the drop, one person bought a pair it seems. If that guy pulls out, we'll be back to $209.99 :) Yeah, MD should implement automatic return to commit status should the drop lose a few buyers and the price rise at the last moment. Prolly less hassle than going through a bunch of order cancellations if the people are not happy with the purchase price, expecting lowest commit price and facing a higher priced tier instead.
I didn't know people can back out after committing. That's the whole point of committing. YOu are agreeing to buy it at the lowest price.
I think Massdrop will have to either cancel all the orders if it doesn't reach 45, or honor the $159.99 price. They can't make you pay $209.99 if you didn't agree to that.
I already have a Geek Out 450 and love it. I don't really need another one...
I am sure one more person will buy to unlock the $159.99. If not, I may do it just to help everyone out.
Hmm, I'm probably stupied but can someone please explain to me as basic as possible how I can be stucked at a price I never committed to?
Someone pulled out after the drop reached the final threshold and now all $159.99 commits are stuck at $209.99 price. I guess in the next 9 hours someone else will come in and everything will be well again lol (unless another one pulls out... again)
Decided to bite the bullet...

Welcome to the owner's club, DVass13.
We need 5 more people to join yeah, but I think more important thing is to understand and appreciate the quality of this product. Eventually I believe it is going to be much much more than 5 people :)
Here is a comparison table with the 2 other well regarded and well known products: http://mustgeekout.blogspot.com.tr/2013/08/geek-vs-others.html
On this page Geek Out measurements are compared to the other portable dac-amp's measurements. When I solely look at the measurements it seems that Geek Out ruled them all: http://lhlabs.com/force/geekout/898-geek-out-vs-the-others-3rd-installment
I own the Geek Out 1000. It is amazing. I'm in for one of these. You can't go wrong.
This is a steal at the price, just need 6 more people. Also considering that the GO 720 is discontinued, this maybe the last chance to grab one....
Last night, I listened to the 1000 version with Sennheiser 650 HD cans and it was great.
We need more buyers please!
Only 6 away from reaching the lowest price for this drop. Come on people, spread the word!
You simply cannot go wrong At $160 this DAC is a steal!
we need more buyers!
So is this product on the MD web site with ES9018 or PCM1795 ? Who's going to confirm this?

ES9018M - confirmed by LH Labs

That's a great news! Thanks! Even better than the previously mentioned PCM1795 DAC Chip. But right now my mind is puzzled. Because I have seen that 45 people joined and the price was dropped at 159 USD. I checked it from my cell phone. Now I am using my computer to purchase but seeing the price as 209 USD. What's going on???
