 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.)
   Glad to hear of a happy user!  What DAC were you using previously? Thanks!
 Thanks William!  Having come from the Burson V5 duals to the SS3602 (in an iBasso PB2), driving HD 800 or DT880 600), and switching back to the V5 for a day after several weeks of using the SS3602... I think they're both really close in terms of neutrality - they have no coloration. I personally can't say which is warmer, if at all. Maybe it's just how they are performing in my chain.   To me, the most readily discerned distinction is the SS3602's power-related...
 Good news.  What do you think of the sound?  And what did you replace with the SS3602? Thanks!
 I wish I actually needed it. :-)
 Exactly.  The DAC has no player software and, thus, has no awareness of the file formats handled by your source.
