In fact let me expand that question to all the boards except the balanced amp module which I already have but no experience with the other boards. Do any of the boards have a noticeable noise floor?

 

I feel the new discrete has among the lowest noise floor of all the cards along with the IEM card.

 

The original classic amp board I had is pretty bad, the worst of the bunch.  The Angel (3rd party made) is also just average.  The balance/minibox/old ad8397 stock/older discrete all has similar level that is slightly more noticeable than the IEM/new discrete but still better than the Angel.

 

These are impression of the cards I own, and I'm not sure if there are unit variation etc....
