The mulibit version is designed to have a more analogue sound and eliminate the "digital issues" that most dacs struggle with. The Modi MB is one of the very best dac's that you can get anywhere near it's price often competing with much more expensive products. Here is the answer direct from Schiit:
How about the Modi Multibit?
Modi Multibit has exactly the same inputs, finish, and controls as Modi 2 Uber (and also a large, stylized “M” screened on the top that looks kinda like a space invader—and helps designate it as a Modi Multibit.) But it’s profoundly different from the Modi 2 Uber inside:
- Architecture: Instead of a conventional delta-sigma architecture, the Modi Multibit uses our own, entirely new multibit architecture.
- Digital Filter: Instead of using the digital filter embedded in the AK4490 DAC, the Modi Multibit features our own unique closed-form digital filter implemented on an Analog Devices SHARC DSP—the same filter used in the Bifrost Multibit.
- D/A Converter: Again, instead of using a delta-sigma audio DAC, the Modi Multibit uses an Analog Devices AD5547 medical/military-grade D/A converter—the same D/A converter used in the Bifrost Multibit.
Very interesting. It's hard not to like something that is labeled as "medical/military-grade" .. sounds neat.
I'm going to go ahead and ask if I can connect this to my laptop? Essentially it would have to be Computer ------> Modi MB ------> Burson Soloist SL -----> Headphones
EDIT: I'm also assuming that I'll need to buy PYST cables in order to connect the Modi to the Burson?
EDIT #2: I'm also assuming that I'll need to buy their USB cable in order to connect the Modi to my computer?
