I have connected this dac to my marantz integrated amplifier, and it sounds very good, it's slightly high on bass side, but still its very clear and stereo imaging is perfect.

Schiit Modi 3

I am using my Schiit Modi 3 DAC with my Logitech Squeezebox and Cambridge Audio CA351 amp. The quality of sound has improved a lot since I switched over from the internal DAC in the Squeezebox. Still in the burning in process, therefore I'll put in a detailed review later.

Great addition

Thank you headphone zone for the quick delivery. Coming to the product it has opened up the soundstage to a great extent, every instrument and vocals are crystal clear.Loving the sound coming from my wharfedales.

This Schiit is Good.

For sub 10000 INR, Modi-3 is the best desktop DAC you can buy. Very clean output and good connectivity options. This time it's USb 5V powered so no worry about bulky AC power bricks. Separate power and data port ensure lower noise and easily can be hooked up with even phones. Only draw back is no On/Off switch. So far very happy with this purchase.

An affordable all rounder dac

I was looking for a dac to upgrade tge sound from the tv set top box and normal cd player and feed it to my stereo amp powering floor standing speakers. During my discussion with a friend in TIAF he introduced me to modi 3. Did some research , got convinced, but it was already out of stock. Now the wait started and one saturday the notification from HPZ came that it is back on stock. Ordered it then and there. And guess what by monday it is already out of stock.
The sound.
With my amp Nad 326 bee which is actually warm sounding amp the addition of Modi 3 added more warmth. I had to turn down the bass knob down to minimum to make the sound more natural. The details that these bring out are awesome . it has been a VFM upgrade to overall sq of the system. Totally worth the price. Wish it had a bluetooth connectivity too.

specs often lie

i have three dacs 2 from topping and one from nobsound all chinese dac i have topping dx3 pro its using DUAL ak4493 dac and topping d10 using ess 9018 k2m dac and nobsound is having ess 9038 dac not the pro version . modi3 is only having akm ak4490 dac chip ITS 4 year old dac chip . but it still sound better than all three dac .i only got modi 3 last week it is not properly burned in if there is such a thing as burn in period .i think its not about the dac its more about implementation .even though ak4490 is an old dac still sounds better .HAPPY WITH THE PURCHASE .
