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.
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.
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 .
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.
Over all excellent sound quality from a good product at decent price.
Desire-ables are input cables , good RCA cables.these should be offered at max 10% premium or be included.
Installation Instructions and better packaging are also required
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.
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.
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.
I bought this as I screwed up my CA DACmagic 100 while trying to switch back to 5532 from LME 49720 (by the way you need to be electronic buff to understand what I mean),
This DAC is solid performer and compete any thing that costs 25000(other than Schiit). If you want to begin your journey for good quality audio this the start point and a big step as any thing after this with better sound quality will cost you more than 25K.
After waiting for a long long time, I finally decided to buy a DAC. I was torn between IFI nano and modi 3. Finally, bought the modi3 when I was promptly notified by HPZ that it's in stock (thumbs-up for this!). Connected the modi to my mac air - no drivers, no sweat. It instantly appeared in the volume control menu. Played a few from Leonard Cohen and Ilayaraja. Boy, this schiit is good. Real good! Very neutral. The AKM DAC talks about the velvet sound and so the treble was a bit recessed. Adjusted that part a bit and it's all good! For now, really happy with this DAC. Thanks again to headphone zone for making this available. Highly recommended.
