looks like i found my new DAC
just waiting now for the reviews. They really know how to get the buzz going
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!
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
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!
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.
