I do notice more Hiss on this chameleon then my old valab had. Im hoping it clears up a little with break in. In my 2.1 I get hiss but not until the volume is up to unlistenable levels. I can hear it more easily on Chameleon, at loud but not crazy volumes, at the volumes you listen to Classical at.
Hey Bill, hows your power supply holding up? Have you done anything to it other then put big feet? It sounds like a nice mod, but I really hate to ugly up this nice chassis with holes, guess I could try to find a local machine shop that could do it pretty. Not doing anything for a couple weeks though, perhaps longer. Not by choice though, I lost my job today (laid off), yet again. It's not a good time to be a Locksmith in San Antonio. Tax time is coming, really puts the crunch on small business.
Edit: I had the combo Stacked and recently took them apart, they run much cooler this way. Especially the Dac, I was experimenting with this, thinking maybe the heat from the DC-30 would transfer to the Dac and it would act as a larger surface area to keep the whole thing cooler. Does not seem to work that way though, ashame as the pair looks excellent stacked.
