I kinda like this because of how nice it would look beside a THX 789 but...how does it compare to a Modi 3?

Objectively, the optical audio may sound better on the Modi 3. But USB apparently has a lot more distortion. I think the balanced output from the sdac is a big selling point over the modi3. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/review-and-measurements-of-schiit-modi-3-dac.4742/

Thanks for your response. Actually wound up going with the new Topping E30. Very nice pairing

Actually, the USB for the Modi 3 measures better than its optical-in: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/review-and-measurements-of-schiit-modi-3-dac.4742/post-104838 There was an incompatibility issue with the ASIO4ALL wrapper that Amir used during his initial testing, which has since been corrected. The OP decided to go with the E30, so I'm just posting this for future reference.
