23mm from the pcb to the top of the enclosure? I see no chance of getting even the smallest available 21-23 stepped attenuator installed due to that size even if you removed the circuity board. Man this schiit is small.

I'll have to win 2 lotteries to keep up with you guys... lol...

 

If you need two lotteries to buy a $99 amp, you are in dire straits. Damn, I know people who spend more on Legos than I spend on headphone gear.

Yup. The Magni's teeny tiny alright. So unless you go vertical... biggrin.gif

Has anyone here measured their Magni power adapter voltage output and would care to share the results with us please? Cheers bigsmile_face.gif

Hi there,

Does the PYST $20 PYST cable come in pairs or do I need to purchase 2 of them(1 left and 1 right)?

 

Thanks.

post #1326 of 2152

Comes in a pair. Just need to order the one set for 20$ to hook up to your modi, or whatever other device you plan on using.

Just a bit under 18 volts unloaded. Why?

VAC

Yes, yes, yes, VAC. I figured since it's an AC adapter and the Magni only accepts an AC input, it could go without saying.

yes, well, I was picturing a person who has  a 'bedside setup', would have a bedside, a living room, a home office, an office, a portable setup...

hence the comment...

 

Yes yes... Lego wise, I'm one of those persons... or was, when I was 12-15 yo... golden times... 

 

Also, Magni + Modi would arrive at my door for something around 470usd, so it is a bit sour cost/benefit indeed, imo...redface.gif

OUCH!

 

Why so much?

mmm.. Economics. Not my best subject but if we are talking USD, my Magni would have cost about $190 (in the uk)

Thanks for that, my magni came with a US power adapter that is not suitable in Australia therefore I'm planning to use my O2 PSU instead. And guess what it works like a treat!

Yeah, but in his case we're talking about more than $250 over and above the retail price of the Modi/Magni pair. Hell, I could buy the pair and ship 'em to him via FedEx Express for considerably less than that.

Yeah? Cool beans!

 

Just be careful you're not sending much more than 16 VAC (glancing over at Iamnothim with squinting eyes) to the Magni. The regulators are only using circuit board copper for their heatsinking.
