Crane Song Solaris Quantum is the best transparent DAC on the market for both pro audio and Hi-Fi

By ONLINE26421 on January 5, 2021

I really enjoyed putting the Solaris into his path here at the Work Shop, giving me a third options in my DA’s world when I need upmost transparency I go with the Quantum and it never failed me so far !

The Crane Song Solaris DA, it fits my system perfectly, which is increasingly getting smaller and more high end.

I did extensive comparisons of D/As here, and while its very difficult to directly compare - the Solaris has an amazing linearity to the midrange, and theres not the lower midrange bump like there the other DAC I tried. The big selling point for me was when doing ITB mixes for TV, using the USB on the Solaris and using its stepped attenuator - the image and sound doesnt suck away at super low levels. So, therefore - I can mix at a lower volume and still feel satisfied. Its not a warm converter, but my mixes are translating even better now because it feels honest. At first I thought it was super bright, but its really just a feeling that the sound is right.

I documented my journey over on the Gearslutz site, but briefly:
After purchasing the Solaris here I had a chance to do a head to head shootout with the Dangerous Convert-2 and the Crane Song Solaris. The Convert-2 had been burned in much longer, but after just four days of continuous burn in with active signal, the Solaris was clearly the next level of clarity, transparency and musicality. In the end, the choice was easy.

You owe it to yourselves to try one of these. Just be sure to burn it in with signal for at least four days. My test system:
Amphion Two18 speakers
Amphion Amp500 amplifier

The Solaris gets my highest recommendation.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
