I may possibly be able to squeeze a Schiit Modi 2 with tax returns. I know it’s a cheap DAC but I’m curious as to whether it would be worth exploring vs the internal DAC in my Marantz PM6005. I’m aware the a big advantage to the Modi 2 is that it will feed a line level signal whereas the internal is 12-15db under line level. As for use case, it’s getting signal via optical from my AppleTV for movies and also Apple Music so I know I’m not asking a lot of it. I guess I sort of feel the hotter signal alone will allow the rest of the system to shine. Or maybe I’m dumb. Who knows.
