Default Any Cowon M2 owners here?

Hey all.

I am looking for feedback on the Cowon M2, specifically wondering how much it 'hisses' with DSPs enabled?
Having owned many Cowon's myself (C2, i9, i9+, E3 etc) I am aware that they are not all equal in terms of sound quality. Oh for sure the C2 and i9+ are identical sounding but they both carry significant hiss, especially when DSPs are in use (more so when the settings are more extreme). The E3 however even with many of it's DSPs active and at high values) is dead silent, not a hiss to be heard.

I'm seriously considering the 32gb M2 with a 64gb card, price point is fine, 16,000 tracks I can make do with, full range of dedicated buttons and 4 custom eq slots ticks the boxes, the one thing leaving me unsure of is the hiss factor, is it the same as the C2, i9+, or is it silent like the E3... :S
