Schiit Modi 3e

The Modi 3e is a tiny DAC that really deliver. Whether you want better sound from your computer, TV, streamer, tablet, CD player, or many other sources, Modi 3E delivers. The most affordable member of the Schiit DAC family.

Modi 3E: All The DAC You Need

Plug Modi 3E into any virtually any computer or streamer and you’re ready to go, complete with the best USB interface available: Schiit’s own Unison USB™. Or, choose an optical or coaxial digital source with a wall USB power supply (not included). Or connect to your phones and tablets that need a low-power-draw device, again using the wall USB power supply. Modi 3E accepts pretty much any input you can throw at it!

Need Volume Control? No Problem.

If you’re using headphones, just add a Magni for adjustable volume via its preamp outputs. No headphones? Just add a SYS Passive Preamp for analog volume control.
