We are not performing science here. We are simply measuring a DAC whose manufacturer should have done the same and published the results. Since they have not done so, we, the community, are spending our own money and time extracting this data. My measurements have been out for a while now and the manufacturer knows about them. Yet they have not produced anything of their own disputing mine. Until such time there is such a response, the data is the data and can't be attacked just because.I do not know which reproduction is closer to the source material, and I was looking for clarification in this forum. So far, I'm puzzled by the lack of scientific rigor here, to put it mildly.
The exact same setup has been used with countless other DACs and audio tweaks and it has remained consistent. Time and time again it is shown that the Schiit Modi 2 has a variable output that changes with what the computer is doing, what the power on USB bus is, and general condition of USB signal. We should not in any way or shape try to make excuses for the product in question.
And to be clear, the company may have better products. If owners think so, they can loan me theirs and I will test and verify them. You say you have the Uber version of Modi 2. Do you want to offer it for testing and do you think it will do better than the regular Modi 2? What if I bought and tested that. Will then be a call to buy yet another version like Multi-bit? I don't have infinite budget to keep trying different versions of the same product as you can imagine.
