*PRE-ORDER, ETA to be confirmed*

In Norse Mythology, Modi was one of Thor's sons. Here, Modi 3 is a do-all USB and SPDIF DAC. Like Magni 3, it's arguably all the DAC you'll ever need. Just plug it in and enjoy!

The Modi is a tiny DAC that really delivers. Whether you want better sound from your computer, your tablet, your CD player, or many other sources, Modi 3 delivers.

  • Modi 3: All the DAC You'll Need

    Plug Modi 3 into any virtually any computer with the included USB to micro cable and you’re ready to go. Or, choose and optical or coaxial digital source with the included wall power supply. Or connect to your phones and tablets that need a low-power-draw device, again using the wall power supply. That’s right—Modi 3 accepts pretty much any input you can throw at it! Featuring the AK4490 DAC and DC-coupled output, Modi 3 delivers great sound far above its price.

  • Modi 3: The Complete Mini-DAC

    It is also the best delta-sigma Modi, and the most versatile Modi Schiit has ever made. And it also comes with a cable and a wall power supply.
