    Good news, everyone, we're back up and running with the Solaris 2020 loaner again. I just got it back from Campfire Audio and the problem has been fixed.

    I got the Solaris 2020 today! Came quick! They’re WAY smaller than the og Solaris! Like half the size maybe. Crazy. Listening to them now! :)

    I should be shipping this to @Clemmaster on Wednesday. I’ll send you a pm for your address.

    do I have to send them in the stupid black net pouch? It forces you to wrap the cable in a really tight circle around it and that hurts my brain. Rhetorical question I’ll do it anyways... :mad:

    Got them 2 days ago. Only got to listening to them for the first time tonight on the Bifrost 2 / Jotunheim 2 stack.

    Man these are good! Besides the tonality which is a bit different (and even then, can’t really be mistaken for anything other than a Solaris) I feel it is an improvement across the board from the OG that I own.
    The bass line is more pronounced and more defined and the overall clarity and sense of cohesion are up a notch. Kinda remind me of the Andro Gold / Ara in that sense (maybe not quite to that level, in absolute term), although I don’t think the 2020 are crossover-less ?
    Maybe the new tonality just works better for my ears and allows me to hear more detail?

    Edit: the above is with CA’s pure silver litz, IEMatch (ultra) and spinfits, which I have settled on for years now with CA’s IEMs.
