This Schiit is Bananas! $99 Schiit Magni Amp and $99 Modi DAC - Page 3

post #31 of 1299

I also like separates.  As long as they stack up pretty.  I would rather the power supply and transformers in a separate box as well.  (Not for $99)  I understand that..

It's still much better than comparing cables. ksc75smile.gif

 

Now who wants to buy a Fiio E9 anymore, when this thing has almost double the power output, same price and is made in USA? Plus MUCH lower output impedance..

 

It's a killer product if it sounds good.

Congratulations to Jason and team on the new Schiits.  Really looking forward to the reviews... I'd love to be able to recommend these to folks instead of the O2/ODAC, Audio-gd, Fiio, etc. stuff.

And just when I had posted (in another thread) that I was done with headphones/headphone-related buys, along comes this Schitt!!!!

 

Love this from the FAQ:

Quote:
I want a combined DAC/amp! Why didn’t you put a DAC in here?
We did. It’s just in a different chassis and costs another $99. It’s called “Modi.” Stack the two and tell yourself it’s a combined DAC/Amp for $198.

 

 LOL!!!

 

I think I'm going to byte on the amp and take it to the office... maybe I'll even stop using my Leckerton UHA-6SMKII!!

That should be their next $99 product... a power supply with two outputs.

Great idea.  They should listen to this Schiit.

Does the Modi come with a USB cable?

Don't see any on the site.  However, If they would it could be a complete package along with the PYST cables.

No, it comes with a toothbrush and dental floss.

I was just looking around for a ~$100 DAC!

Almost sure I'm gonna buy these, but what does this mean?

Does that mean I won't get the most out of it if I plug it in my computer?
