    1. if I already have 1.12.149, do I have to do the flash to stock step?
    2. did you mean, lurker has to be installed twice as indicated?

    1. No
    2. YES

    When flashing fidelizer, ensure you follow instruction in their website properly including disable verity.

    How's the hiss with just stock DX220 and stock Amp8 + Solaris? Need to replace broken QP2R and still very intrigued by DX200. Thanks.

    I just purchased the DX220 to pair with my Solaris, did you here the hiss with stock amp?
  5. zephyrstar
    Good questions, I should have mentioned. With both the stock AMP and AMP8 hiss is minimal, it is totally fine. But with AMP9, the hiss becomes really objectionable with Solaris. I am really sad about it, I love the musicality of AMP9. I wonder if it is possible for iBasso to address the hiss with Solaris. @Paul - iBasso any idea if it is possible to reduce the hiss with AMP9 and Solaris?

    And for FWIW, I think I prefer the stock AMP vs AMP8 with Solaris.

    SE or bal? How sturdy is the 2.5 on the stock amp? I've had no end of issues with 2.5 jacks lately...
  8. EarDrumExplode

    Im hoping to get a lot of use out of balanced jack. I ordered the super Litz 2.5 when I got the dx220.

    I only tried SE. I'm not a big 2.5 fan.

    I've almost given up on DX229 as it sounded a little too bloated with 3.5mm SE connection but today I was playing with the parametric EQ
    on neutron player and looks like I hit the g-spot! Now sounds much more transparent and defined while maintaining the warm tube characteristics.

    Can i ask your EQ configuration :D
  13. dhc0329
    You gotta play with it to your liking...This is what works for me with 5 band parametric with surround and dither on.

    freq: 1155 gain: -3.870 q: 3019
    freq: 250 gain: -1.060 bw: 1.000
    freq: 500 gain: 1.350 bw: 3.907
    freq: 20576 gain: 1.332 bw: 1.000

    Yes, DX221mk2 had waterfall hiss with Solaris, but also create micro detail with it..
    Consider Unnoticeable when the song played..

    When I demoed N6ii, Yes, also Unnoticeable Hiss, the background is darker then My DX221mk2.. but also lack of Micro detail on N6ii...

    N6ii has enough details when listening to my Phantom/ Eros II 8 wire and no hiss at all. However, DX220/amp9 has better SQ with no hiss compared to amp1mk2 which has no hiss either.
