One thing to consider. Mike Moffat is a digital guy based on his experience at Theta, Schiit, and elsewhere building DACs and transports. But the whole reason he took up that charge was to try and bring digital as close to his preference as possible, that being analog sound from vinyl. He's mentioned in interviews that he's still a vinyl guy at heart and the Sol has been percolating in his brain for a very long time. Having read this thread, I'm still intrigued enough to get a Sol but unfortunately funds don't allow at the moment. But I do think Mike may have put a lot of trust in users with this piece. I mean, new analog boards, the new USB board, all of those items go into closed betas in real homes with listeners, not professionals, evaluating them. I don't think any such testing or process happened like this for the Sol at all which is really odd, and very different from how they normally approach a product or upgrade launch. So I'm not quite sure what the thought was there, but obviously this thing needed just a little more time in the oven. I believe they'll sort it out, however I've no clue how publicly that will happen or not.
