What's up guys ?
This is my very first post at head-Fi ! I am very happy and excited being a part of this wonderful community. I am originally from Egypt but I was born and raised in Qatar. I'm in my early 30's. Married with a 5 year old boy... (nasty, naughty boy )
I first came across Head-Fi when I was looking for reviews for a bang-for-buck USB AMP/DAC. I hate a lot of products in mind, such as topping TP32, Audio Engine D1, some from Fiio, Yulong U100 and few others. Then I came across Schiit.
I read some reviews and most of them were nothing away from 100% satisfied owners. I wanted to ask for recommendations from the models that I have mentioned above, but I it's too late now. I already made m decision and bought Schiit Magni / Modi Stack combo . not sure if I got a little hasty here. I feel I should have bought Vali over Magni.
The AMP is gonig to be paired with UltraSone Pro Logic 550 headphones.
The main reason I started looking for AMP/DAC is that I wanted to get rid of the internal sound card because it ruins the looks of the Rig from inside.
Here's a quick photo of what the PC looks from inside:
Before sound card:
After Sound card:
As you can see. Not only the sound card is blocking the looks of the back plate, it also have this annoying red LED. So removing the sound card and replacing it with Magni / Modi stack combo should improve the sound quality significantly plus making it look nice and tidy inside the PC.
I have very high expectations from the Schiit products.
So apart of introducing my self, I wanted to also to ask you guys, Am I going to be blown away with the sound quality from the combo over the sound card ?
Thanks and regards,
