Just received my new magni3 and modi3
i set it up using a toslink and not usb. I grabbed a very cheapy toslink cable which i will upgrade soon. Its still too soon to give my opinion, but i want to say kudos to asus for the onboard souncard. Comparing it to the 250€ stack its not that much worst. I have the magni set to hi gain and the volume knob at 9 o'clock. Max i can go on most of the music i played, starts being too loud around 11-11:30 o'clock. There are few though that can go even at 3 o'clock on high gain. What i have found, that i first thought that was an issue of the onboard soundcard , is that there is a lot of hishing noises on the background . The issue persisted with the stack. I am using music bee set to exclusive wasapi. The hishing is there on spotify and flacs. From my flacs, there were only a couple that had 0 hishing. The intensity of the hishing scales proportionally with the volume knob. Is it just a poor mastering issue since a few of the flacs have 0 noise and hishing ? I also tried streaming master quality from tidal hi-fi and the few i tried were also hishing-free.
