SCHIIT INTRODUCES THE NEXT GENERATION DAC - THE MODI 3E

Schiit started its journey in 2010 when two audio industry veterans decided it was time to shake things up. The two audiophiles are Jason Stoddard, formerly of Sumo, and Mike Moffat, formerly of Theta. Together, they have designed dozens of audio and A/V products. Schiit has long remained a favourite manufacturer of digital converters and headphone amplifiers among audiophiles. Schiit is now introducing the Modi 3E, the next-generation DAC. The Schiit Modi 3E raises the bar for headphone audio! After giving it a try, you'll notice that the sound has become better by becoming crisp, warmer, and more accurate.

Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Modi3E

FEATURES ESS SABRE DAC CHIPSET THAT DELIVERS PHENOMENAL SONIC PERFORMANCE

Schiit engineers have designed the Modi 3E to deliver the cleanest and most precise audio reproduction. For this reason, they have incorporated the ESS ES9018 D/A converter chipset from ESS Sabre. The SABRE32 Reference audio DAC ESS ES9018 is the world’s highest-performance 32-bit audio DAC solution targeted for consumer applications. With ESS’ patented 32-bit HyperStream™ DAC architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the SABRE32 Reference ESS ES9018 stereo D/A converter delivers exceptional sonic performance that will satisfy the most discerning audio enthusiasts. Modi 3E houses the ESS ES9018 D/A converter, with an OPA1656 with precision thin-film resistors, DC coupled to deliver precise digital to analogue conversion. It also features a Schiit Unison USB™ USB receiver chipset for lossless audio transmission from your devices. Modi 3E performs far beyond its size.

Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Modi3E
Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Modi3E

EXPERIENCE HIGH-QUALITY SOUND WITH JUST ABOUT ANY SOURCE DEVICE

Plug Modi 3E into virtually any computer or streamer, and you are ready to go, complete with the best USB interface available: Schiit's own Unison USB™. Or, choose an optical or coaxial digital source with the included wall power supply. Or connect to your phones and tablets that need a low-power-draw device, again using the wall power supply. Modi 3E accepts pretty much any input you can throw at it! If you're using headphones, add a Magni for its preamp outputs for volume control. You only need to add an SYS Passive Preamp if you aren't using headphones to regulate the analogue volume.

Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Modi3E

SKILLFULLY DESIGNED AND BUILT IN THE USA AND FUSED WITH THOUGHTFUL INPUTS AND OUTPUTS

Modi 3E's build is smooth yet elegant, with high-quality metal housing. All Schiit audio products are designed and made in California. Chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, and other components of the complete Modi 3E production are made primarily in the USA. The team of engineers at Schiit have designed the Modi 3E to incorporate multiple inputs and outputs for easy connectivity and compatibility. The front panel consists of Power LED, which lights up when you have Modi 3E plugged into a computer or an external power source. It also comprises the Input Selector switch, which allows you to toggle and switch between inputs. When it is at the top, Unison USB™ input is enabled. Coaxial input is enabled when it is at the bottom, and Optical (Toslink) input is enabled when it is in the middle. The rear panel consists of RCA Analog Outputs, Coaxial Digital Input, Optical Digital Input, USB Data and Power Input, and Power Input.

NOTE: If you’re using Modi 3E as a USB only DAC, you don’t need Power Input. Just connect it to your computer with the supplied USB Micro cable and you’re set.
If you’re using the other digital inputs, and you’re NOT using USB, you need Power Input. Modi 3E won’t work without power, and power comes from USB.

Not at all a piece of 'Schiit'. One of the best entry level DACs

My current setup: Raspberry Pi with a Digi Hat running Volumio acts as the streamer. Marantz PM6006 is the Amp and DAC. Speakers are Dali Zensor 3. I mostly play FLAC files. I decided to buy an external DAC as the next step towards incrementally improving my setup.
After considering few other DACs I zeroed on to Schiit Modi 3E. HFZ as always delivered it on the next day. I did lots of A/B testing of Modi 3E against the inbuilt DAC of PM6006 (which is already a decent one). I do not know how to articulate the difference; I am not a great listener who can differentiate minor changes. However, as a casual listener I can say that the sound with Modi 3E is more pleasing to listen and I am incredibly happy with the purchase.

Hey there, thank you for the great review and ratings! So delighted that you are loving your purchase. Hope you had a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!

Schiit modi 3E

I was a bit sceptical about the 3E and its implementation of a different chip set because of supply chain issues... Boy I was wrong. The sound is just incredible. Makes my setup with speakers and amp sound amazing. Am also using it with the HD820s' and the separation and depth in the soundstage is just mind blowing. It is still being run in as I have just been using it for a few days, and yet its so impressive. Highly recommended.

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!
