Thank you for your post and input. I can't see the Modi being an upgrade from the Titanium HD though. I'm not disagreeing with you, and the Modi is probably a great DAC for the cost, but sample rates, THD, SNR, Frequency Response, and output are lower on the Modi compared to Titanium HD. Of course that is all on paper, the proof would be having the ability to listen to them both to compare, but if the Modi somehow sounded better as a DAC, then I am guessing it would subtle. I do appreciate your post and it does give me something to think about. I just think that if I am going to upgrade my DAC, it will probably have to be a significant upgrade like an Uber or Gungnir.

It's free, and essentially changes the windows processor scheduling and other settings for optimum audio quality until you restart your computer. Though, it will make everything else a touch laggier while enabled." Yes I have tried Fidelizer before, but I really don't need it. I am a Computer Technician so of course my PC is pretty high-end (32GB DDR3 RAM running at 2133, Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 4960X Ivy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (Turbo 4GHz) LGA 2011 etc.) so no problems with PC speed or memory in that respect Thank you again for the great post and information, it gives me something to think about and consider, I appreciate it.
