Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

post #1 of 1887
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,

 
Let’s start our product announcements this year with something really low…specifically, the lowest-cost advanced multibit DAC out there, by any manufacturer, from any country on the planet. Welcome to Modi Multibit. 
 
At only $249, you’d expect a super stripped-down DAC, right? Definitely not with our proprietary closed-form digital filter, and definitely not with a modern (not NOS or “pull”) DAC.
 
Well, we’re pleased to change your expectations. Modi Multibit runs a version of our own “comboburrito” filter on a powerful Analog Devices SHARC DSP, and couples it with an Analog Devices AD5547 D/A converter that’s spec’d down to 1/2 LSB. Together with three inputs—asynchronous USB 2.0, optical, and coax—it’s an extremely versatile DAC…and an extremely affordable way to try this whole “multibit thing” for yourself.
 
Modi Multibit product page: http://schiit.com/products/modi-2
 
The Modi Multibit is available now at schiit.com.
 
Enjoy!
 
Jason

Finally a replacement for an ageing V-DAC II in my speaker system. Good job. Schiit is going to sell a truckload of those.

Great job guys, I respect Schiit more than any other company out there. You guys are the anti-overpriced audiophile snake oil that pollutes this hobby. Thank you thank you thank you.. please keep doing what you're doing and advancing the technology and research in the industry. I have nothing but respect for you and love these incredible value for the dollar products.

Dang... Just bought a Modi 2 Uber last week. :/
Totally stoked to see Schiit continue to trickle down the Multibit stuff tho. Very cool.

Sweetness!! :atsmile:

 

I love that it has a full 2V of output (Modi 2/Modi 2 Uber only have 1.5V), just like all of the other big boy DACs!

Hmm, although i have a Concero HD would love to try me some Multibit goodness, maybe for my dad.

 

Love the fact that Schiit is trying to win new people to get interested in the Audioworld, i like that it's Schiit because they clearly love what they are doing.

Definitely brings up the use case. I'm excited to hear one of these. Will anybody be showing these off at CanJam London?

Ordered online. Woohoo a Schiit multibit for my office setup. 

post #12 of 1887

Well this certainly is exciting!

post #13 of 1887

Wow, great job! Can we assume that no Windows drivers are required for this version, too?

post #14 of 1887

Very cool - look forward to future announcements too.

Not needed for standard mode. Check Schiit website:

Modi 2 plugs into virtually any computer—Windows, Mac, popular Linux distros, Intel Chromebooks, as well as iPhones and iPads. Just connect via USB and go with no drivers in Standard Mode, up to 24/96 output. Switch to Expert Mode (and install Windows drivers) for extended high-res capabilities to 24/192.
