Schiit Audio Modi 2 USB Asynchronous DAC

Schiit Audio

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!)

  • 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.

    Modi 2: 16/44.1 to 24/96, including 24/88.2, without Windows drivers, or up to 24/192 with Windows drivers (or using a Mac or Linux machine)
