Which amp/dac combo should I get? Budget of 200$ max. Should I opt for the Magni Modi 3, Fulla 2 or the O2 Odac?
All good choices, but the Fulla 2 is far less powerful and closer to 100$. The other two combos, O2/ODAC or Massdrop O2/SDAC, and the Magni3/Modi2 are good buys and relatively inexpensive.
Is there a big noticeable differenve between the fulla 2 and the magni 3 modi 3 stack?
I haven’t heard them myself. I own 2 O2s, one of which is bundled with the SDAC in the same unit. But if you look closely the Fulla2 has a similar DAC as the Modi2, but in terms of power the Magni3 is significantly more powerful than the Fulla2. Go check yourself on Schiit‘s web site. Again I haven’t listen to them, maybe they sound similar at moderate volumes, but the Magni3 beats the Fulla by a distance over 150 ohms (HD58x) or 300 ohms (HD6xx) in terms of mw power.
I have the fulla2 and the modi2/magni2, and there is a huge difference in power. The fulla2 DAC sounds really good, I did not perceive much difference from modi2 (conclusion not by formal testing, I use the fulla2 at work only). Using the fulla2 some headphones I felt sounded lousy or not as good as expected, but they really came to life with the magni2. Use the fulla2 for the DAC and to give an extra punch to low/mid impedance headphones. Magni2 for the price is King.
100% YES! Fulla 2 is nice for portability/convenience, but a Modi 2 (there isn't a 3)/Magni 3 stack is next level.
