I think the O2 would probably be a better choice simply because the Magni has twice the power output of the O2 and 5 times the gain if you use the O2's 1.0x unity gain, which I recommend using with the fairly sensitive M-100.
I'm heading off to a mini-meet today and the Magni will probably be there. I can test the M-100 there and report back here if my opinion differs.
As for DACs, the Modi looks nicer, but the ODAC is really small an compact. I have the ODAC because I can easily slip it in my backpack to local meets and have easy access to it at school. It makes no sense for me to carry around an external desktop hard drive-sized DAC.Edited by miceblue - 1/26/14 at 11:44am
