Schiit Magni Headphone Amplifier - Page 2

And IEMs too?
Yes. We’ve tested extensively with IEMs, and Magni’s noise floor is low enough for many of them, except for the very sensitive products.

 

From there website...

 

I wonder if that means the UM Miracles are to sensitive? They are 16Ohm...

I wouldn't immediately dismiss the O2/ODAC combo quite yet.  It is a stack that gives you incredibly clear and competent sound for a really good price.  I still like my HDP over the O2/ODAC stack, especially now with the Sigma 11, but the HDP/S11 is twice the price.  This stack certainly has looks and raw power, but I really want to see what else they can bring to the table.

Too cute, had to order a set.

Yeah, this could crush the O2 as the entry level recommendation. Very appealing.

Was considering O2/ODAC but now I'm reconsidering. These look amazing aesthetically. Hoping for good reviews in terms of the technical bits.

will it be enough/better for Beyer 600ohms? my dac is an Audioengine D1

post #24 of 2175

if so, I found my amp, cause I'm on a budget and this is much cheaper than the O2, plus looks stunning

According to Jason, that's the distortion of the amp with the wallwart, so with a linear power supply, that could be quite an improvement

hey guys! I asked them how it paired with the 600 ohm Beyers (I'm getting the DT880) and within minutes Jason Stoddard responded:

 

 

700

 

That there really hyped me, i think I'll pull the trigger by this week when I have the cash

Looks very nice, was also considering an O2 within the next month, going to wait for some reviews to pop up on this now though :]

post #28 of 2175

Magni vs Asgard reviews, cannot wait!

post #29 of 2175

I'm so impressed! They are so small and affordable!
