I've had my Sony VW11 for over 2 years, and I'm finding it harder and harder to tolerate the fan noise. If I were to change it, what would you recommend as a (genuinely) near silent replacement. When I bought the Sony it was advertised as near silent, so you obviously can't trust the manufacturers claims. I once saw a Yamaha DPX-1 that was much quieter than the Sony, but how much have things moved on? Is the new Sony HS20 quieter than the VW11?
