Interesting.  :-)   Mine came from France, which now has me wondering where it's actually made and I'm amazed that yours has a 12V battery instead of 7.4V (as shown in my pictures on the previous page).  I've also had no problems with the USB or Coaxial jacks.     Would you mind posting a link to the retailer from which you placed the order?   Here's where I got mine:...
 Any news to report? Thanks!
 Oh, thanks for this info. The Lycan specifications don't say, but I think it reasonable to assume it provides the op-amps with a supply voltage closer to the Burson V5's maximum of +/-16V, where my iBasso PB2 is running at +/-12.6V when the 3-cell LiPo battery is fully charged, less as it discharges. That could explain my SS3602 running cool while yours run warm.   I've never actually measured the operating temperature of the SS3602 in my rig, despite having a laser...
 
^ Thanks!
 I had to remove the adapter to reduce their height - so that I could put the lid on the case of my iBasso PB2. One thing I've noticed about the SS3602 is that their pins are not as large in diameter as the pins of other opamps I've owned.  I haven't measured them with a micrometer, but it's easy to tell the pins are not as thick because they just aren't gripped as tightly by the sockets as are the pins of other opamps.  This hasn't been a problem at all - just an...
 This held my attention for a long time!  Very nice.  I love the mood captured here. The colors are warm and soothing.    A relative newcomer to this thread - I really like your work.  :-)
 Perhaps it's because I'm running them at a lower supply voltage than you are, but my two SS3602 run very coolly.  I'm running them at +/- 12.6V, but they can handle up to +/- 22V.   One thing's for sure, the SS3601 or 2 will not overheat in a foam-filled orange plastic coffin that melts after it has cooked the components within.  (This has happened in Gustard H10 amps, where the supply voltage has been measured at 1/2 a volt to 1 volt higher than the factory spec maximum...
   So Metrum has gone back to using an M2Tech-based USB board in the latest DACs?
 This is a shot in the dark, but do you have the iOS device volume turned all the way up (a good thing, as it gives you maximum bit depth)?  (I would actually be surprised if turning the iOS volume all the way up fixes the problem, but it might be relevant.)
