This is why I love Schiit. No BS. What was your goal in bringing up the Fiio with him? That they should design and build one just for you? The only answer he could give you was, go buy it, because it's the product for you. You were at the point where you were just wasting his time.

He is still correct though. There aren't 2-channel DAC's that decode DTS etc. That is a 6 channel DAC that destroys the signal down into 2 channels.

This little Vali amp impresses me every time I use it. I am listening to it right now fed by a Breeze Audio DAC with my Beyer T90's and it sounds great. Can't believe it was only $129.00. Best money I have spent on audio in a long time. Highly recommended.

you are missing the point ewallp99 IF a DAC is compatible with DOLBY/DTS/PCM then you will get at least sound coming from it all the time even if its not the best sound and if a DAC is only compatible with PCM meaning it can only decode PCM then you only get sound from it with PCM signal making it useless with DOBLY/DTS

 

I think this Modi DAC was made for computers or MP3 players NOT for new TVs with optical output or blu ray players

so I was looking for a DAC I can connect to my Vali Amp I was going to get the Modi DAC but seems it is not compatible with DOLBY/DTS/PCM like the Fii0 D07 cheaper and better then Modi amp even the schiit tech said I should buy the FiiO D07 over the Modi DAC

 

Here is the conversation

 

ME is your optical input Modi DAC Compatible with DOLBY/DTS and PCM ?

 

Schiit Tech No, the same for any other 2-channel DAC.

Thanks
 

The D007 does not sound as good as the Modi , And the Modi is a DAC, not an amp. I own both.

The Fiio product will take that signal and turn it into a super low quality sounding one. It needs to take those 6 channels and turn them into 2. In the process you are lowering the sound quality of the signal. You're lowering the sound quality in this process, and the whole purpose of the DTS and Dolby streams. 

 

 

You're right, the Modi isn't a product to hook up in place of some large receiver that does the latest DTS or Dolby, or 7.1 over HDMI. There's always been a barrier between the 2.0 Stereo audiophiles and the 5.1 + people. Some brands like Marantz is probably what you want if you hope to get decent sound quality out of a 5.1 signal.

I wouldn't expect it to have the best sound for $99 my only beef with the Modi is it doesn't have a Dolby/DTS decoder to hear the audio and a cheap China Fiio D07 does and can decode PCM/Dolby and DTS so shame on Schiit

 

 cant afford Marantz costs an arm and a leg

"shame on Schiit" for making the best budget stereo DAC in the USA?  You apparently want a different category of product.  Don't go the Porsche dealer and complain they don't have pickup trucks.

Woah. So you can get the features you want, AND save money? That's the one you want.

This is one of the most absurd things I've read in this thread-and that's saying something.

Go read through a Heir Audio or iBasso thread sometime. Absurd is only the ground floor of the skyscraper.

Smart fellow :L3000:

 

Anyways, I've had a few months with the Vali so far. The love affair I'm having with the Vali still hasn't cooled off. I'd like to add that it drives the new Enigma headphone very nicely.
