    bass is good and the highs are detailed, though not clinical like a SABRE DAC. After using the original Modi for a year or two, I noticed that bass, detail and imaging were all noticeably improved. It's hard to describe but I find music seems to flow better with the Multibit than with the original Modi, it just sounds more, well, musical. :D

    Listening done through DT1990, HD 650 and HE 400i headphones

    Did you ever get around to getting the Eitr. Rids? i wonder what that will do to the sound instead of USB straight into my HTPC

    no, I've not had any problems with my USB and the Multibit so I never bothered.

    You could just try using an optical feed and see if you can hear a difference, it's a lot cheaper than buying an Eitr

    Nope not had an issue with my USB and DAC either just looking at few threads and some say the multibit and Eitr work really well together. Wonder what all the USB gen 5 is all about lol

    I honestly don't trust my ears to pick up any changes wrought by USB - when I was 20 maybe but not at 61 :D

    Same here im not 61 but 44. I may opt for the Modi i don't think it be much of an upgrade for the v90 but i suppose have the same gear on my pc would look better and may put the v90 for my Dali and use the PI for picoreplayer

    Opinion: It's a DAC. If it does its job properly, it won't sound like anything. Measurements will confirm this.

    Buy it if you want it, don't try to justify it through audiophile 'memes'.

    If your ears don’t hear a difference that would be the answer.
