        My friend in Pasadena currently has the Solaris. It's really good. Runs it with a Schiit Eitr, which he claims improves the sound. He played me some music with and without, and the Eitr seemed to have a positive effect. Might have been the power of suggestion though?

      Hey Marv, did you ever get around to a DEQ2496 writeup?

      Also I'm trying to figure out how transparent it really is (with minimal GEQ/PEQ only). I can't hear much if any difference vs bypass all. @Riotvan still hates it though. Interested what you think.

        I was using a V800 dac back then and it was AES. Can't remember if i tried bypass, i think compared between physical bypass and eq. Amp was modded BH Crack and HD800 with rugliner.

        You need to feed it with a digital source. If you use the analog input or internal DAC, then all bets are off. But with DEQ2496 in between a CD transport (or optical from FireTV) and Yggy 2, I could not tell a difference. The DEQ was so good that I could tell the which one of my transports I was using or which connectors (SPDIF, AES, etc.)

        I'm using a cheap Pioneer player via TOSLINK. It makes no sense that different transports would have a "sound" with an optical link and reclocking DAC...

        Highlight was seeing the vets protesting against Hanoi Jane and Michael Moore on State Street in Traverse City. And the guy in the red redneck truck with the Dixie horn. Priceless. Julie wants a Dixie horn now. Probably won't go over well in California. Anyway, used Hanoi Jane as a teaching lesson for my kids: doing extremely stupid shit has consequences that one can never take back despite 1000 apologies.

        I'd be more worried about someone else hacking it to the same end. If the car itself developed consciousness, wouldn't crashing itself not be in the interest of self-preservation?
