Received my Schiit Modi 3 yesterday....


... I have a Mac C-41 pre a A21+ and AA 10T’s.  

I’ve always had a odd high end issue with this system I could’nt find. I even sent the tweet’s from the 10t’s back to Mr. Kelly. All turned out to be on point. 

  I signed up with Qobuz to stream but could only come out of the IMac’s headphone jack...

enter the 99$ Modi 3 yesterday... POOF, all the issues I had with this system are gone! Optical from cd and usb from iMac. 

This little 99$ gem is sweet and has really made me happy. I am saving for a “better” dac but I am skeptical to be honest. 

It is small and fits into my system without being seen... except for the LED in the front, wow it’s bright.

Bottom line is I am very happy with the Modi 3 and it was as inexpensive as I can find and is a quality piece...

Enjoy your day, I will be upstairs enjoying my “new” system!

Does anyone happen to know why Schitt no longer offers the Modi multibit on their website?
Looks like it's still there. However, normally when this happens it is a sign that a new version is coming. (I think the next version will likely have a unison USB input but don't know for sure.)
How funny, it wasn't there last night or this morning first thing Eastern Time.
Ran across this Modi 3 review (revisited) that was quite interesting.

(164) Schiit Modi 3 Revisited (2 months later) - YouTube 

In the second part of the review, he talks about the sound quality improvement that resulted from placing small weights on top of the Modi 3 case. I didn't have those particular weights on hand so instead I placed a book on top of the case and was taken back by the sound improvements. In particular, the upper midrange and highs were cleaner and more focused.

It makes for a no-cost experiment and you might be surprised (and pleased) by the result. No reason to think it wouldn't work for other light-weight DACs as well.
