I'm not sure if this is the best to post this. I bought a Modi 2 Uber, as I plan to pass on my Modi 2 (non-uber) to my dad. So for now I own both the Modi 2 and the Modi 2 Uber - and so for anyone that was wondering (because I was) the Uber is noticeably better. I feel like it climbs out of the "entry level DAC zone", into the "better than entry level DAC zone". Easily worth more than the extra $50. Sound is more extended in both directions, better subtlety and dynamics. Wish @schiit would stop holding out on us with the next wave. But until then, I will say this, the Modi 2 Uber is pretty sweet at $150. Get this over non-Uber if you are vascilating. Edit: oh yeah, so I would put this a notch or 2 above Modi 2 non-uber, on the DAC chart.
