This Schiit is Bananas! $99 Schiit Magni Amp and $99 Modi DAC - Page 9

post #121 of 1353
I wouldn't say that's true, but it is my concern. I'd buy a piggyback cable just in case. They're very cheap, and the convenience is there if the quality is near identical.

Do you have a cable brand/model to suggest? Maybe I'll try one myself.

wall wart... need 230V grrrrr

I don't, but I don't believe in cable voodoo.

I'd just pick one that looks sturdy enough...

That looks fine.

That is where I bought the Lyr Bifrost USB, even though after a year I decided to finally buy a MF vlink 192 to utilize the spdif advantage...but that's another topic...and back to the topic..I hate to have to buy it straight from the website, although I would not mind---I mean I will have fund to make the purchase in about 2 weeks and before then I will have more reviews on these nice pairs but other than that I am surely buying them

 

 

 

These are ONLY designed for direct sale--no margin in them for resellers.

Bought the Magni!

I guess I'll have a new AMP at work...

Jason and Mike are the Schiit. I wish I I could order a Magni right now but I have to buy Christmas gifts for other members of my household........dammit. I'm also torn between purchasing a Modi first because I do have other Headphone Amps I can use. Or replacing my long-in-the-tooth Rega Ear Amp, I sure would like to buy a fully discrete Magni as a replacement. Oh well, I'll probably have to wait to make a decision on this next month anyway. I hope all Head-Fier's have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Happy Listening.

YESSSS!!!!!!!! Picking one up asap! Can anyone think of a battery to use with the Magni? I'd like this to be purely portable, but If I need a wallwart that's fine too.

Don't know if battery will work since its AC But correct me if I'm wrong.

Strap a car battery to your back... you'll be fine. smily_headphones1.gif

Ah, you're probably right. Oh bother, it will still work well at my desk. :)

SOLUTION FOUND!!! :D

This is very interesting. Subscribed. I wonder how this duo would pair with DT990 ~ 600Ω from beyerdynamic. Jason , can you comment on this? If it turns out great, I wouldn't mind upgrading to this at all!

 

destroysall.

Today is my 40th birthday, and now I know what I want....

I think it would have been better for both to have the option of running from a $99 linear PSU with 3 outputs, then launching a $99 tripath/TI/whatever for speakers. smily_headphones1.gif
