Schiit Magni Headphone Amplifier - Page 107

post #1591 of 2123

Anyone know how these amp/dac combination are for classical music with the Q701s?

post #1592 of 2123

For 701s does anyone know the difference between the Asgard 2/Modi and Magni/Modi? Or really just how well any of those two pair with the 701s?

Anywhere to get it from Canada except from Schiit website directly?

Shipping is like 35$ mad.gif

Headphone Bar from Vancouver is a Schiit Audio dealer, but Magni and Modi IIRC are for direct sale through Schiit website only. Thus your only way to get it from within Canada would be to find it used.

If you look across from his name it says Toronto, I just ran into the same thing in Ottawa. Headphone bar doesnt carry em and it'd cost like an extra 70$ to order it direct :/

I always tell people that if you live in Toronto, a viable options is to ship it to a mail depot in Niagara Falls, NY, drive over to the States with an empty tank, and make it a little weekend trip. With gas prices the way they are now, you'll save $10 - $15 on the tank, so the driving more or less pays for itself. And then you save a bunch on the S&H, plus you get a nice little getaway trip out of it.

And for those in Ottawa, you can do the same thing by going to Ogdensburg, NY. Those in Montreal, to Champlain, NY, etc.

Or you can always look for it used. We head-fi-ers like to punish our wallets on a regular basis with this upgrading thing every now and then. wink.gif

Hey Man, I live right outside of Detroit which isn't far from Toronto. If you'd like, we could arrange for an Amp to be delivered to me and then I'll send it from my work (Free of charge) because we have a business unit in Toronto.

 

Of course the Amp would have to be mailed to me and you would just have to trust me that I'd send it to you. I'm not a sleazebag, I wouldn't offer if I had intentions of screwing you over lol :)

Is your username a reference to the old Commander Keen DOS game? I loved that game, hah! :)

Are there any cans you lot know of which pair notoriously well with the Magni for under $800 or so? Do you think HD700s or TH600s for example, would warrant a better amp than the Magni?

The Magni is really ready for almost any dynamic headphone, and some orthos. I don't know of anything that work "notoriously" well with the Magni, but both my HD600's and Shure SRH-840's sound GREAT on the Magni.

 

If you had the HD700, I would personally look into the Asgard 2 or Valhalla. They would probably be better suited for the HD700.

I also read the Crack powers the HD700s well, I'm torn between HD650/700s. I think the 700s are too expensive for me to buy and then get an amp too so maybe I'd be better off with the 650s. I might go to my local headphone shop and try them both with the Magni. Other options are HE4/500 potentially.

Don't forget the HD600s, quite a few of us like them more than the 650s.

Agreed, I like the HD600's better than the 650's. And for that matter....actually better than the HD700/800. The latter 2 models are just a bit too bright for my tastes, and the HD600 is exactly what I was looking for because it's more neutral than the HD650.

 

There's a reason why the design of the HD600 hasn't changed in 15 years... It's because it's a solid performer that still compares extremely well against anything released today.
