Special Price € 145,00

Beschikbaarheid: new stock date not clear yet


Modi is a complete family of affordable DACs for virtually any need. Whether you want better sound from your computer, from your Apple TV, from your CD player, or virtually any source, the Modi family has a model that will fit your needs perfectly. 

Modi 2: Improve Any Computer’s Sound
Modi 2 plugs into virtually any computer—Windows, Mac, popular Linux distros, Intel Chromebooks, as well as iPhones and iPads. Just plug in via USB and go with no drivers in Standard Mode, up to 24/96 output. Switch to Expert Mode for extended high-res capabilities to 24/192. This will require drivers for Windows, but for no other OS (hello, Microsoft!)
Modi 2 Uber: The Complete Mini-DAC
Honey, I shrunk the Bifrost! That’s the idea behind Modi 2 Uber. Like Bifrost, Modi 2 Uber offers USB, Toslink, and RCA inputs, each individually selectable via a front-panel button. It also has a more sophisticated analog section, with DC-coupled output. And, it’s ready for all sample rates, from 16/44.1 to 24/192. Again, Windows requires drivers. Alert to Microsoft: USB Audio Class 2 was, like, a decade ago. Please support it and stop requiring us to provide drivers. Seriously, Android phones support it.
Modi Optical: For Airport Express, TVs, Gamers, CD Players, and Beyond

Modi Optical plugs into any optical source—from computer sound cards to Apple TV—and delivers great sound up to 24/192. As with all SPDIF components, it requires no drivers, and it’s powered by a small wall-wart.
Need Volume Control? No Problem.
If you’re using headphones, just add a Magni Uber for adjustable volume via its preamp outputs. No headphones? Just add a SYS Passive Preamp for analog volume control.
Made in USA

By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Modi—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to US companies. Our board house is 20 minutes away from our office in Newhall. Our chassis guys are just over the hill in the Valley.

So, you’re saying you plug this in and you’re ready to go?

Pretty much. In Standard Mode, Modi 2 can be used with virtually any Windows or Mac computer instantly recognizes Modi USB and requires no drivers, and many Linux distros that support USB Audio Standard 2.0 work just fine as well. It can also be used with iPhones, iPads, and Intel Chromebooks, as well as the Sony PS4. In Expert Mode, you’ll need to install drivers on Windows, because Windows is stuck in some weird time-warp where it's still 1997 and people are gaga over Office or something. Seriously, everything supports USB Audio Class 2, including stuff like Android phones, Linux, and Chromebooks. Microsoft, you look dumb here. Sorry. No other way to put it. And yes, this includes Windows 10. Argh.

And the difference between Modi 2 and Modi 2 Uber?
Lots. Let’s break it down:
Inputs: Modi 2 only has USB, Modi 2 Uber has USB, optical, and coax.
Control: Modi 2 has no controls, Modi 2 Uber has an input selection switch.
Power Supply: Modi 2 is USB powered, Modi 2 Uber has a linear power supply and wall-wart.
Chassis: Modi 2 has a painted steel chassis, while Modi 2 Uber has an aluminum top and pushbutton (pinched off the Bifrost, natch!)
So how’s the support for Linux, iDevices, and Chromebooks?

Any Linux distro supporting USB Audio Class 2 will be fine. Most do. Please note we’re not able to provide troubleshooting or support of Linux issues. For iPhones/iPads running iOS7/8, you can connect digitally with the Lightning to USB adapter sold by Apple, but you may need a powered USB hub to avoid the "this device draws too much power" error. Intel-based Chromebooks also work, though AMD seems to be a bit of a crapshoot.
I want a combined DAC/amp! Why didn’t you put an amp in here?

We did. They’re just in different chassis and costs another $99-149. They’re called “Magni 2” and “Magni 2 Uber.” Stack the two and tell yourself it’s a combined DAC/Amp for $198-298. Mix and match for exactly what you want. Ha. Try that with a combined DAC/amp. Also try not to shed any tears as you throw away a perfectly good amp with that amp/DAC when digital technology changes. Face it, you want separates. 
If this thing is so great, why would I step up to Bifrost or Gungnir?

Because you want even higher performance. Or upgradability. Modis aren’t upgradable. 
But I heard all DACs sound the same! You’re bullshitting us!

If it’s your experience that all DACs sound the same, that’s cool. There’s a DAC in your iPhone or Android phone, so you can use that one and save some cash.
