At the outset, would like to say a big thanks to Headphone Zone team for such a quick and safe delivery of the unit. It was just a day in between. This has been a seven days session with the DAC since then. I have another Schiit Modi Uber DAC to connect my laptop for digital music and upgraditis bug stings for Multibit and I carried away. This DAC is hooked to laptop through an USB A to B cable (purchased separately) and via Audioquest Jitterbug USB which helps in reducing the machine noise. I must say there has been a profound improvement. Particularly the mid-range has become so lively and deep and coming close to the analogue sound that I enjoy from Technics 1200 MK II turntable and Tube phono. Rest of the system is tube preamp and Sansui AU 717 as power amp with EPOS bookshelf speakers. The sound stage has become more all-encompassing and bass is much more tight. Am expecting the highs to be more rolled off with further burn-in of the DAC. This DAC also has not caused a dent on my wallet too. I know at least three more persons in my town who are satisfied users. So the conclusion is A budget DAC with notable ramp up regarding the quality. Highly recommended.
It has been a month that I have been using this little gem and I think it’s time for me to write a meaningful review. First, a thumbs up to the Headphone Zone team for helping me with the purchase and a lightning fast delivery. I am currently using the Modi MB with two sources and it feeds a Marantz PM 6004 Amp with Wharfedale Diamond 10.5 speakers. The first source is a Marantz UD5005 universal disk player through coaxial input. The UD 5005 itself has quite a decent DAC and I was in two minds on whether the MB would have any audible enhancement to the music. Well, after a burn in of about 20-30 hours, I must admit I can hear real improvements. The soundstage is much wider and the overall presentation is tighter with a much improved mid which suited me quite well with the genre of music that I listen to. The second source that I use is a Raspberry Pi running Volumio through USB. My music is a mix of FLAC and 320kbps Mp3/Aac. This is where the MB shines. My previous rig was either to hook up my Fiio X1 to analog inputs directly on the PM6004 or the Marantz AVR NR1606. Since the X1 does not have a digital output it was using its own internal DAC. The difference is day and night. I play analog (vinyl and cassettes) more than I do digital and I must say the resultant sound is quite to my liking not just because of the resolution and clarity but the overall sound signature which has that tightness of analog sound. The music is clear without being analytical. It just shines in all departments. I have also hooked it up with a Fiio headphone amp and used it with a Shure SRH440 and an Audio Technica ATH AD700 and this is really where I think it was the best. I am sure it will be exceptional with a better combination of HP amp and cans. Overall the Schiit Modi MB is very neutral and faithfully brings out details of sound to make it music worth listening to.
Its been almost 10days since I have received this little gem. Woow.. it's real eargasm. What an experience. Just mind blowing. Paired it with DIY Sapphire amp hooked it with PC and tired it with all different cans - El8, modded 6xx, HD540 & DT990 pro. Tried with both USB and Coax (coax was ever so slightly clean) With everything music suddenly turned out to so clean and neutral. Sound stage has improved a lot. The layering / timbre everything is super. The bass is tight. Imaging is as it should be almost precise and intimate. The mids are so juicy. It has made me fall in love with music all over again. It just blew my present go to dac/amp mojo out of water. Overall sound signature is so nice and analog type. It just brings out the music as is with real faithfulness. This is I think the best R2R DAC out there at this price point.
Thanks HPZ team & Raghav for the fast delivery and big hurrah for stocking this at very reasonable price.
I would choose this over most/all Delta sigma DACs. It’s solid for the price. Pretty aggressive sounding, bright and slightly fatiguing. Best paired with warmer setups. Still, very very good for the price considering the crap out there being sold for 5x its price. Nevertheless, I prefer NOS/True R2R DACs to Modi Multibit and those can often be had for much much less than this if you import from outside. Nevertheless, this is a solid product with very good sound, solid build and solid warranty. Easily worth the asking price, just not the single most VFM product available on the planet. I would give that award to Nobsound NOS DAC TDA1387. Costa 40 bucks at AliExpress. And sounds better than Mimby. However, I would still rate Mimby 5 stars because it’s pretty subjective which of the two you’d choose.
Excellent DAC, used with Denon and NAD. very clean sound.
I have been using the modi multibit for quite some time now. I use with a Denon DNP 720 Network player , marantz PM6004 amplifier and Usher S520 bookshelves. I however do not use MP3 or any other lossy format. i only use FLAC and due to the source being uncompressed, i guess the multibit actually shined. The sound is definitely more improved and much more detailed. The neutrality is also a big plus point. overall, a fine buy.
What an incredible experience! Coupled with Swans M50W 2.1 Set up, this external dac provides a sensational musical experience. It will blow out of water any internal sound card or dac at this price point. The low end is punchy, the highs are smooth, but the biggest surprise is the mids. It can hardly be described over a review, so you have to check it out for yourself.
A big thank you to Headphone Zone Team / Raghav for making Schiit available in India. Much appreciated. It will be great if you could extend the venture to bookshelf speakers as well.
