    Solid setup mate. The new Solaris looks nice, 20% smaller housing!

    Mine desk setup will soon be;

    Schiit Modius > Cayin IHA6 > ZMF Aeolus
    Schiit Modius > McChanson SET Tube > ZMF Aeolus
    Schiit Modius > NAD 3020 > Monitor Audio Silver 50

    Just waiting for mr postman to bring the toys.

    I didn't realise Schiit released a new dac, I assume this is the 'new' modi? Interested to see how it stacks up.

    Mine is fairly simple right now, the wife hates when I hoard headphones otherwise I would own a few more pairs (eyes on HD800s & a pair of high end closed headphones at some point..)

    Questyle CMA600i > (either internal DAC or Chord Mojo) > Audeze LCD3 / Sennheiser HD650
    Samsung Note 9 > (either internal DAC or Chord Mojo) > Campfire Andromeda
    KEF LSX (3.5mm > RCA into CMA600i used as a preamp or Bluetooth to phone - The wifi mode keeps losing connection a couple of days after setup so will need to investigate..)

    Not to replace the Modi. It's in the Bifrost/Jotunheim form factor. They made it to prove a point. See, we can make a DAC that measures amazingly, in the USA, for $199. Take that Amir....or something along those lines. It's a AK4493 based thing.

    Earbuds = Soundmagic S10 or something, actually bloody good for the price.
    Cans = VMODA xfade wireless with larger aftermarket pads to replace to recently worn flaking Audio Technica MTX 50 and they are much better.
    Speakers = PC has Logitech Z5500 5.1, my god they are good for the age, but bass heavy and lacking tweeters! | TV has Yamaha amp/decoder and 5.1 speakers, the front left and right are about 5 foot tall and the sub is 12 inch, same as the Logitech sub actually, booming.
