Wow, I am excited about this. MUSES02 in a portable headphone amp? That would be a first!
I guess it depends on which IEMs you use, but I didn't notice an issue with hiss with the handful of IEMs I own (UE900, Westone 3, Audeo PFE122, etc). So it didn't even cross my mind that an amp specifically for IEMs was even a thing.
What is the projected price? I think the E12DIY was going for about $250 on Amazon. I know the MUSES are expensive chips. I'm very curious as to the price point.
Going to try the MUSES02+LME49600 in my E12DIY to see how I like it. I may just get one of these new amps!
PS - I personally think keeping the rail voltages higher for better sound would be the way to go.
