Nuforce udac and Topping upgrade to, Schitt Modi/Magni worth it ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I currently have a Nuforce udac2 hooked up to a topping tp-21, Im using the Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro 250 ohm ,and the AKG K701 as my headphones. FLAC as source.

 

Udac2 : http://www.amazon.com/NuForce-uDAC-2-Black-Digital-Converter/dp/B003Y5FRNS/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1358724103&sr=1-1&keywords=udac+2

Tp-21 : http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=310-310

 

My question is if it is worth it to upgrade to a schiit modi/magni stack, or to just save up for a bifrost/asgard (year or so from now, college student). Or to just upgrade the DAC to a modi ?

 

How much difference will I notice between the Modi and Udac2 ?

 

I listen to a wide variety of music.

The M&M stack seems to have better specs, and it looks better (from the technical side) than the Udac. 

 

Personally I'd like to have one of that for the office. tongue.gif

I actually just went from a Topping to Asgard, so far the Asgard does seem to be a decent improvement, but not mind blowing. I'll have some Q701's and a better source in the next few days so I can do a better comparison.

Thanks for the help guys. I decided not to go with the modi/magni. I decided that It would be better to buy a higher-end DAC and headphone amp once I get the money to buy some more expensive headphones to make them worth the money.
