Received my SPDIF iPurifier two days ago. Have been burning it in with my Modi Multibit DAC non-stop sense they were unboxed. Didn't bother to listen to them without burn in.   Listened today and I noticed a noticeable noise coming from my headphones when no music was playing. My audio chain is as follows.   (PC w/ Asus Xonar STX -> Blue Jeans Cable Belden 1659A Coax (True 75Ohm, FEP/Teflon Insulation, solid coppor conductor, Canare RCA plugs) -> IFI SPDIF iPurifier...
Something interesting- my batteries died in my JDS Labs Cmoy, and I happened to have a RCA to 3.5mm Female adapter cable on hand.   I plugged my Meze Audio 99 Classic Headphones directly into the DAC, and the DAC alone easily drives the headphones to louder levels that I never use! 
Unfortunately I'm still waiting for it to ship from Music Direct. I saw other stores had them in stock but I only buy audio equipment through authorized dealers. I'll be sure to post impressions as soon as I have a hold of it!
Just bought one! I can't wait to use it with my new Modi Multibit!
I'm going to contact Schiit and see if they'all take a recommendation at creating a super low jitter, super clean, ARM processor computer to create the digital signals for their DAC's. Seems like their is a lot of interest in low jitter, bit perfect computers and it would be a perfect spot to fill in their lineup to go with their DAC's. I'm thinking TOSLINK/USB/BNC (BNC can be adapted to COAX- but straight BNC is arguably the best digital output) out. Sorry to slightly...
It's funny you mention this because I was also looking at buying a Raspberry Pi3 with a HiFiBerry + to use TOSLINK out with Tidal.
Only if you're talking about USB. TOSLINK and COAX are virtually identical regardless of source- aslong as output is bit perfect.It's also awesome that TOSLINK and COAX from the same source will measure 99.9% the same, regardless of cable quality. Minor differences do exist, but they are so small audibility is extremely questionable- and I'm a believer that analog cables do make a difference.I just choose TOSLINK for galvanic isolation, and I don't have to worry about EMI,...
You won't have to do anything other than set the audio output in your PC to SPDIF/TOSLINK out. Nothing is being converted in the onboard dac. The digital music signal/bits gets "written" into digital optical bits, and is sent through the fiber optic cable where it is received and "read" and then processed by the dac. This is very simplified but gets the general concept across.I'm no electrical engineer, but I believe any digital audio bits originate with what's called an...
I just wanted to chime In and let people know that you really should be using TOSLINK with Modi MB. I'm not blowing smoke on unsubstantiated claims. Here are measurements made. The difference between USB and TOSLINK is extreme in some measurements, including jitter; not to mention free galvanic isolation. Also note that the measurements were made with a decent USB cable (better than freebies) and the TOSLINK measurements were made with a freebie cable. Using an audiophile...
Its good to know that I'm not the only one having this issue!   I'm going to get into contact with Audioquest and post an update here on if this is a known issue.
