A short film about the Schiit Modi 3 DAC

  • “Saw it on the tube
    Bought it on the phone
    Now you’re home alone
    With a piece of crap”

    – Neil Young

    The Modi 3 DAC. It’s a piece of Schiit  but it’s no piece of crap. Previewed (here) and reviewed with words and pictures (here), the Modi 3 might not have the portable prowess of the identically-priced AudioQuest DragonFly Black but what it lacks in go anwhere utility, it more than compensates us with broader connectivity – coaxial, TOSLINK and USB – and a tonally richer, weightier sound. At $99, this Schiit – like many before it – is a stone-cold bargain.
