    I just got my Solaris for about 4 Days and used it with my Sony TA, Hugo 2 and QP2R. And it hisses on every device in that order:
    TA < Hugo < QP2R
    So I ended up using my ifi IEMatch on every device (I just use the balanced connection; exception of course with Hugo).

    Ouch, I just want something between $1000 and not to crazy that doesn't hiss.

    Well that sucks...
    but if you are planning to stick to what you have... well thats fine.
    i hope u tried a decent Hiss Manageable Device, so you can know SOLARIS true potential....

    I am not to keen using iFi, except if I watch youtube on any device with Solaris...

    Well, my suggestion either N6ii, DX220, or AK Kann ( only, not KANN Cube).

    Kann better manage Hiss then N6ii, IMO. but.. FLAT sound Sig....

    It’s ok with the IEMatch so i don’t regret it. The sound from the Solaris is really that good :)

    But true, if you want a hiss free IEM the Solaris are some of the worst Monitors.

    I like the Cube very much. Full featured and future proof with power to drive most headphones. It delivers the music without any real color. I hear no hiss.

    Cowon PL has absolute zero hiss and sounds awesome :)

    What cable are you using?

    I'm using the ALO Gold 16 Balanced and hear no hiss on the Sony TA. I only hear hiss on the WM1Z in Hi-Gain at a volume of 100 or more which is an unlistenable volume level. I normally listen anywhere between 40 and 50.

    Hello , I've just ordered my Solaris . It was the pick of the bunch for me at CanJam London but my wallet had a hard time justifying a second TOTL iem . Now that I"ve made my decision I'm looking for a decent and not too pricey 4.4mm terminated cable to use with my WM1Z . Any suggestions other than the ALO Litz cable ?

    It is the ALO Litz 2.5 cable. And the hiss is not that loud as with Hugo or even QP2R but it’s still noticeable for me.

    Is it feasible for Cayin to produce such modular dacs. The trend of many companies output new models on a consistent basis with different chassis, amp sections and dac chips.

    Having modular sounds very good in the marketing department, but negates profit margin to charge larger for initial costs of "newer/fresher" models. As you know "we" all love new toys to search for audio nirvana :)

    My little A&K SR15 sound quite nice but I'm patiently waiting to see what they make next. NO Hiss audible to my aging ear drums. The SR15 is certainly not in the category of the Kann Cube sound but the SR15 is ridiculously tiny with "barely acceptable" battery life.

    I wonder if Solaris would be too big for me since the Andromeda was like the maximum I can fit my ear.
