Top critical review
A great value
January 6, 2019
My Modi 2 broke after 2.5 years, powered on but no PC would recognize it. So here we are with the Modi 3, a really nice upgrade with optical and optional power supply (finally), and an input selection switch. So far it works great, no perceivable difference in audio quality (to me) from the Modi 2.
Minus two stars because they changed the casing finish from powder coated to brushed bare metal. Now it doesn't match my Schiit Sys. Customer support would do nothing for me, they wouldn't even let me buy a new (current finish style) enclosure for the Sys! So that basically tells me that they will refuse to sell you parts downstream if anything breaks. These essentially become non-serviceable throw-aways.
