How to set up the MODI DAC to a Yamaha receiver?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I will be plugging in my computer and ps4 into a Yamaha rx-v375 receiver via HDMI and was wondering how I would use a schiit modi DAC with it. 

 

Receiver : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B981F38/ref=gno_cart_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

DAC : http://www.amazon.com/Modi-USB-Digital-Analog-Convertor/dp/B00CICPN0K/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2MQBWZ25GS6JU

 

I just want to know how it will be configured and if I will have any problems before I buy anything. Thanks!

Connect a USB cable from the Modi USB port to the computer's USB port.

Run RCA cables, from the Modi's RCA output ports to the ECA (analog) input ports on the Yamaha.

I would assume the Modi will not work with the PS4, but I know very little about the PS4.

 

I personally would just use HDMI cables from the PS4 & computer to the HDMI input ports on the receiver.

Yeah, I decided I won't be getting the DAC, since it will only work with the computer.
