actually, you could make a 256x change in volume (2 to the 8th power, since there are 8 spare binary bits of information). So practically any volume change.

 

But yes there will be technically some loss with 24 bit audio files, but assuming the DSP volume correction isn't faulty, they shouldn't sound any worse than the 16 bit files.

-THD: <0.1%

 

If the specs alone can't be used to fully determine how good a match they are, has anyone here actually heard what the X1 sounds like with the Magni?

 

I have the X1's and im telling you E17 is ALL you'll ever need for them.

I just got my AKG K550 and not really satisfied with Xonar DG in my PC - trying to build my first dac+amp+headphones set. Found dat Schiit website yesterday the stuff looks amazing, guys, you're doing a great job!. I'm just wondering if Modi + Magni will be a good starting point in that price range or maybe there are some other options around?

If you already have a Xonar DG on the PC, I am not really sure how much benefit you would see from the M&M combo. Defiant00 has shared his experience on a similar topic in the post below,

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/643368/schiit-modi-and-magni-comparison-to-bifrost-and-asgard#post_8998822

 

and he noticed minimal differences between the Modi (DAC) and his Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio. Then in a different thread:

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/646464/most-efficient-upgrade-from-asus-xonar-stx-with-stock-seinheiser-hd-650s-w

 

It was suggested that an op-amps replacement on the sound card would be a cheap and effective upgrade.

I previously owned the k550, lovely pair of cans and I just used to drive them from my e17 and needed nothing more... If your're not using a DAC+ amp setup you will see a bit difference in terms of clarity sound quality and most important the amazing soundstage of the k550's, but Id advise to just use minimal amping because the k550's are generally easy to drive.

If the m&m is in your budget I'd say go for it ( it would also come in handy if you'll be willing to upgrade in the future) but if youre on a budget then your fine with just a e10 or e17

Auuuugh why you so slow, shipping!? 

post #895 of 1366

Thanks guys.

The funny thing is that e17 costs here in Moscow even more than m+m combo+shipping. So I decided to try the schiit, placed my order some minutes ago cool.gif

As soon as it will arrive and break in I'll share my expressions here.

Well that is what I did. 

I immediately ordered the magni+Modi combo after reading introduction and some info about this company.

99+99+15.79(shipping)= $213.79

At this price, there is not much USA made audio products available.

How does it perform?? Heck I can't judge this schiit combo yet until I actually can use them.

The good thing is, this combo should be a bang of buck for beginners like me biggrin.gif

Any fellow Canadians purchased the M&M set yet? What are the extra costs like?
