I'm in for a try!

These seem a much more 'desktop friendly' design than the O2.

I'm so torn, I can get a used Asgard for $50 more, but this runs cooler and is much smaller, and as shown from pics, was made to be stacked with their DAC I'll be getting...sooo torn!

But your DX100, will always sound better, even with both!

So I will buy and send them to you and you send me your DX100, and they say good people are gone!

You, sir, are one of the good ones.

It's a shame you never had a chance to own the DX.




Oh.... wait, that's right you did ... from the very beginning! I'm still trying to find out why you no longer possess it. Please elucidate me in the DX thread.

Agreed. Looks like the Magni will address the missing functionality of the Gungnir/Mjolnir stack accommodating for single ended headphones. I now have one less excuse to not pull the trigger on the TH900. Damn.

I don't really need an amp and/or DAC atm, but this was too tempting.. so I, too, have ordered the Magni & Modi stack tonight.  I've wondered what the fuss was about discrete designs for some time now.. and this is as good an opportunity as any to find out.

 

I'll do my best to provide impressions (or time permitting, a full blown review) with my current gear (see my signature).. it should provide some some stiff & relevant (considering the price) competition to the Magni/Modi.  This is my first purchase from Schiit & I've never heard any of their other offerings, so I'm quite excited.

Wow! This looks quite awesome! It may be that if things work out I might get one of these possibly. I would love to see how the magni especially compares to amps arounf (and even above?) its price point.

 

I also find this funny from the modi faq on their website:

 

How can you do this when other guys are trying to sell plastic USB key DACs for 2.5x the price?

 

Hmmm....I wonder what DAC THAT could possibly be? :P

In for one Magni :)

Packing up the E17 for return.

The Magni is as good as mine. I may get the Modi just becauseI'm a sucker for symmetry.

Hell, I may end up putting the SA-31 for sale, and focusing on headphones.

I don't think this DAC upsamples, anyone know?

Just found out about it a few hours ago, and just placed an order for the Modi and Magni. Oh my wallets...

These are the statement alright.  They're the statement stocking-stuffer for Head-fi'ers everywhere.  And released on December 13th to boot.  My hat's off to Schiit, that's well done sirs.  Well done indeed.  Cheers!  beerchug.gif 

 

You can count me in for a stack.  I mean, really, how many folks would be more than happy to suggest these as gift ideas to wives, girlfriends, parents?  Everyone here?  Brilliant.
