I live 30 min from the border, so I had it shipped to a mail depot at a border town. I just paid regular continental US shipping, plus an extra $3.50 for the depot fee. And then on my way back across the border, the CBSA fella just waved me through when I declared that Schiit, so no tax. biggrin.gif

This fixed my problem. Plugged the wall wart directly to my electrical outlet as opposed to using a power strip.

I swear I read somewhere that this Schiit Modi can just be left on? Am I right about this?

 

I have my Modi right now connected via USB to my Apple Thunderbolt Display. It's literally on 24/7 even if I disconnect my Mac Pro. Will this diminish the lifespan of the Modi or should I unplug the USB Cable each time?

Just leave it on unless the light bugs you, it barely uses any power... smily_headphones1.gif

It is. I'll only use BT in mobile settings, hotel rooms etc. but, the Modi can be driven directly from an iPad so I'll probably just keep using the nuforce speaks that way

Just chiming in, sorry if this has been discussed in depth elsewhere:

 

I received Modi a few days ago and am using it to feed a pair of Audioengine A2. The A2s are fun, if a little fat in the low-end for my taste.

 

Magni tightened everything up, so the extended bass is still very present, but better controlled (to my ears).

 

I can't speak to any improvement in the treble as yet. More serious listening is to come.

 

I'm especially enjoying Deadmau5 with the combo, although I haven't had a chance to really turn up the volume--they get crazy loud and this is my work setup.

Just got mine in. Noticeably more powerful than my udac-2 on my Ultrasone 900s. Even at lower volumes.

Out of curiosity, has anyone done a comparison between the M&M pair vs the Fiio E07K + E09K or Fiio E17 Alpen + E09K? Pricewise, these are pretty much neck-in-neck, and both Fiio units has the benefit of being portable.

Without going through this entire thread, anyone compare an M&M stack against the NuForce HDP?

 

Right off the bat just looking at specs it looks like the Magni is quite a bit more powerful than the HDP. When driving 300 ohm cans like my HD-650's:

 

Mangi:

Maximum Power, 300 ohms: 260mW

 

HDP:

152mW rms @ 300 Ohm

 

EDIT: Just saw this post: LINK

If you need portable, get the FiiO.

 

Otherwise, get the M/M. They sound virtually identical, but the M/M looks infinitely better on my desk at work. I am currently keeping my E17 but selling the E09K. I will trade the aesthetics any day over $50.

I just collected my Modi / Magni combo from Parcelforce this morning.

Couldn't wait to get it back to the office and I am not disappointed. These have a small footprint and sit on my work desk perfectly. The Modi connected to my PC first time and the Magni is unbelievably powerfull for its size.

These have replaced a uDAC2 and are a definate improvement sound and power wise with my HD650's.

Now I'm wondering whether the iPad will work with these connected via a camera kit with USB?
