Objective way to tell if my audio gear is faulty or not?

    Modi Multibit with speakers wasn’t working fine yesterday. Today perfect. Maybe cables weren’t plugged in correctly or something. :)

    Does your motherboard have S/PDIF Toslink output? That would be the one hardware suggestion I think is most likely to isolate any issues if there is a problem with your PC. Get an (inexpensive) S/PDIF Toslink DAC like the Modi 2U, and if you don't have Toslink output already, an ASUS Xonar DG which does have it.

    It's still not certain is there is a real hardware problem, so consider the return policy and shipping cost. It might be better to buy from a local retailer or Amazon for instance (not sure what's available where you live) if the out of pocket cost after returning is less than buying from Schiit's website.
