Default DacMagic, and DacMagic Plus

I own a Dacmagic, and have followed this thread--The only mod I did was to bypass the output caps ( I had only 1.7mv offset, and I use the balanced outputs) and I replaced the AC supply with an Audio Advisor Pangea supply--just bypassing the caps made a huge difference--thanks for the info in this thread, the new AC supply was better also (larger soundstage).

I was thinking of purchasing a DacMagic Plus (I have a few 176.4 and 192 files and DVD audios) and wondered if anyone has measured the DC offset in the Plus unit, and if the same cap bypass would work in the Plus version? It has the same DACs but I think the output opamps are different. I can't use the new supply as the Plus uses a DC supply. (I can't find a thread on the Plus)

My DacMagic is "overheating" when running for more than 15-20 mins... Marked area on picture is hot to touch...
Why? Is it normal?
