I’m heading toward all Dave Hill at this point!
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/A’s here, and while it’s very difficult to directly compare - the Solaris has an amazing linearity to the midrange, and there’s 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 doesn’t suck away at super low levels. So, therefore - I can mix at a lower volume and still feel satisfied. It’s 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 it’s really just a feeling that the sound is right.

This spanks the Dangerous Convert-2.
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.
