Just a few months? If I were you I would just tough it out with what you have rather than incurring the additional expense of buying and later having to sell the M&M combo. You'll get to your overall goal of Bifrost/Lyr faster.

Do you guys turn off the amp after each use? I notice the magni gets warm even when it's not doing anything.

I would suggest you do, just for the sake of energy preservation.

Yes, you'd be able to use the Modi with Lyr just fine.

That is correct, any digital attenuation done on 24 bit files would technically be removing data, resulting in lower quality.

Whether you'd be able to notice is another issue entirely.

Another good review for Schiit Magni and Modi.

Looking to buy the stack, what of included accessories though?  AC adapters, cables?

AC adapter and stick-on feet, you'll need to supply your own RCA and USB cables (or pick up the unbalanced PYST).

I turn mine off, but i don't unplug my Modi, hence it is always on.

Would the Magni be a suitable amp for the Philips Fidelio X1, which has the following technical specifications:

-Impedance: 30Ω

-Sensitivity: 100dB/mW

-Maximum Power Input: 500mW

-THD: <0.1%

 

If the specs alone can't be used to fully determine how good a match they are, has anyone here actually heard what the X1 sounds like with the Magni?

Specs just tell us that yes, they'd drive them fine. As far as how they'll sound while doing so? Unfortunately, no idea.

Yeah, as there's sometimes talk about "synergy" between specific headphones and amps.

Both the Magni and X1 are new, seemingly popular purchases so maybe someone has both.

I think the magni is too powerfull for the X1's. They are easy to drive and then you'd have to digitally attenuate the volume like alot of people need to do.

My old one had a very bad channel imbalence... I sent it in, and got #679 back, absolutely none, even at VERY low volumes, they must've fixed it.
