I tested in my office with RCA male => 3.5mm female adapter.
(I did not think that Modi worked without an amp! ...)

Anyway I do not have this problem anymore regular_smile%20.gif. By cons I really miss the Magni ! There, Modi alone with the Shure SRH940 sounds just flat and aggressive.

I've never tried to use my Modi without an amplifier. I don't know how that would work out. I expect you'd get an analog signal out of it, but I'm not sure how loud it would be - might be too soft.

I purchased both the Magni and the Modi several months ago and I have a question about the Magni.

 

Is it "normal" for the Magni to get very warm?

 

The power supply for the Magni also gets very warm as well.

 

I had them stacked with the Magni on top of the Modi, so Magni had proper ventilation. The Magni now sits by itself with plenty of ventilation, all around, and it still gets very warm to the touch.

 

Thanks in advance!

I don't think it's a great idea to be listening to one's headphones through a DAC's analog outs.  That's just me, though.

You are right. This doesn't sound right.

Ok...so I'm a dumazz. I packed my M&M for my week vacation. But I just unpacked and realized I left the Magni wall wart.

If I can find a 16v 8w wall wart at Radio Shack will it work. I recall there being something that made easy replacement an issue.

I don't know, but a friend of mine ruined his Magni by using another wall wart and had to send it in for warranty. Be carefuuuul. :P

Stop. Do Not Buy ANYthing At Radio Shack and plug it into your Magni. For the love of (insert your favorite Norse god here), please read the directions before you make an even worse mistake (from the Schiit Magni FAQ):

 

"Hey, so does that mean I can plug in some uber-special, gold-plated, cryo-treated, 85-lb 2000VA wall wart and have even better performance?
Unless you know what you’re doing, we don’t recommend that. Magni uses an AC wall wart. Most are DC. DC won’t work with Magni.

 

Hey, I have a buttload of wall-warts for routers, phone chargers, talking desk figurines, etc. What if I accidentally plug in the wrong wall wart?
Most likely nothing. Most other wall-warts are DC. Unless you supply Magni with AC, the relay will never connect the output to your headphones."

Hey guys,

 

I read through the last 30 pages or so and I couldnt find anyone mention anything about playing games with the MM combo. Anyone on here use them for gaming? Movies? If so how is it? I know it would be 2 Channel audio but i am interested in upgrading the sound quality of my setup. I currently have this (http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Soundblaster-Surround-System-SB1095/dp/B0044DEDCA/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1374184752&sr=1-2&keywords=soundblaster+usb+soundcard) usb sound card going optical out to my astro mixamp to HD650s.

 

I was a console gamer now I strictly use a PC. About 40/60 gaming to general use (movies music etc). Would this be the right setup to try out in this price range (going up to $300)?

I don't think so. You'll probably need something like the FiiO E17 or the HRT iStreamer.

Absolutely. Go from 30 pin out to RCA connector and into the Modi.
