If you get Modi you'd need rca to rca, if you can afford it get the Pyst as they seem a little better built but you should be fine with Monoprice or similar. If you get ODAC I believe it has a 3.5mm output so you should be fine.

EDIT: The cable you have should be fine as you can plug the 3.5mm end into the Bravo and the RCA into the DAC.

im currently checking out schiit modi

 

Congrats! :L3000:

 

I have used mine with both the Schiit Modi and the Pure i-20. You can read my impressions of the combination in this review.

 

I think the Schiit Modi is a no brainer. Until the Modi came out, a lot of people (in Budget-Fi land) used the ODAC. I have never personally tried the ODAC, but the few posts I've read where people have compared the two, seemed to indicate the Modi was at least equal to, if not better (and cheaper).

 

As for cables, you'll need a USB cable like this one, and an RCA cable like this one. I don't necessarily endorse either of those particular cables - that's just the type of connectors you'll need.

Oooo.. what type of Mullard did you get?

post #2364 of 2599

Just so you guys know, I am letting go of my own V3 on the FS/FT forums.

I think the advantage of the ODAC is that you can get it in the same enclosure as the O2, so if you want one of those as well(even for a second amp) it is more convenient. The Modi looks cooler though. The problem in the UK is that the Schiit official dealer sells it for £99 plus shipping.

The 60's vintage rebranded Mullards are decent tubes. That is a fair price for them. I've also used that seller in the past, and they are reliable (at least for me).

 

Those tubes will be a significant improvement over the stock tubes. I think you will enjoy the sound! :beerchug:

My Ocean has developed some nasty crackling :(

 

Not sure if it's the tube, or the caps or whatever :(

 

I was listening to it the other day, as usual and it suddenly started crackling. It used to be only when the amp warmed up, not it is constant.

 

It still plays music, but the crackling is pretty bad.
