I own Jolidas, a 202, 302 and 502 in my various secondary systems. There shouldn't be an annoying hiss but these units aren't dead silent either. If you are on a restricted budget you will still need to retube. The stock Chinese tubes are terrible. This will be an additional $100-$200. The 302 is a noticably better unit particularly if you listen to pop, rock or large scale instrumental music. I listen to mostly chamber music in my office on the 202.
