Schiit Modi 3 DAC Review
John Darko, darko.audio

"The Schiit brick is one kick-ass first purchase for anyone looking to get better sound from a consumer-grade computer."

"Furthermore, the Modi 3 comes on as more detailed and more robust sounding than the identically-priced AudioQuest DragonFly Black whose small form factor and super low power draw gives it smartphone compatibility and portability."

"The Schiit is 100% a homeboy.Rarely are DAC starting points as compelling as this $99 piece of Schiit."

Schiit Audio Modi 3 - Desktop DAC - Review
Ian Dunmore, Headphone.com

"Modi 3 is easily the best sounding, most enjoyable and convincing DAC I’ve heard in its price-class - and will be installed as my new entry-level reference DAC."

"As a pure DAC, I would rare the performance of, and enjoyment from, the Modi 3 above that of its principal competitors (including the Grace SDAC, Topping D10 and D30, ODAC Rev B etc. and the OL DAC). And for desktop use, for PCM content, the Modi 3 + Magni 3/Vali 2 combination would, for me, trump the Nano iDSD Black Label; especially with more demanding cans - again unless native DSD support, or MQA decoding, was deemed important."
"In short, the Modi 3 comes highly recommended and is, by some margin, the best entry-level DAC I’ve heard.  If you're in the market for a compact, desktop, DAC then you definitely want this on your audition list."

Little Big Man
Gary Alan Barker, Headphone Guru

"I have no problems saying that the Schiit Modi Multibit DAC is the best sounding budget DAC I have heard, it will definitely beat out anything in the sub $500 category and compete favorably with many DACs in the thousand dollar plus group."

Modi Multi Times, or the Modi Multibit is Good Schiit
Larry Cox, Positive Feedback

"I am not returning the Modi Multibit. The uptick in performance is both noticeable and welcome. There is more color in the presentation, even with a plain wrap computer USB cable. Detail is more easily discerned, elegantly presented and more musical to boot."

"For now I'm in for Schiit, the Modi Multibit that is. It's a worthy addition to my headphone setup. Don't let its modest cost mis-lead you. And, with the tiny footprint, it's hard to beat."

The Basic Schiit: Modi Multibit and Vali Review
Alex, Metal-Fi.com

"I firmly believe that this entry level multi-bit DAC is one of the sweetest deals in the audiophile world right now, and you would be hard pressed to find a better sounding platform until you hit the $500 dollar plus mark."

"To sum up, the Schiit Modi/Vali stack easily earns our highest honor. In fact, if I was in the market for a high performing entry level solution, this would be my personal desktop solution of choice. The level of options coupled with its overall performance at this price level is second to none. It is, as they say, the Schiit."

Schiit Audio Magni/Modi DAC and Headphone Amp Review
Christopher Coke, MMORPG.com
"All of this comes together to make quite an impressive combination. At $99 for the Magni, I’m impressed a the value Schiit has been able to offer here. The sheer power of the amp at that price is excellent but when you add in the superior craftsmanship and smooth audio delivery, it’s easy to see why its earned so many fans. The Modi is another $99, but is another solid upgrade to ensure what you’re feeding the Magni is as good as it can possibly be."

This is Some Schiit!
TLRTechnology.com, Jules B

"If you’re looking to take your digital HiFi music to the next level with an amp you need to feed it a clean, strong signal and the Modi 3 has you covered. The Schiit Audio Modi 3 isn’t good for a $99 DAC its good for a DAC period. It is this reason that Modi 3 gets a strong recommendation as a solid foundation at any level of HiFi from TLR Technology."
