You're right. Until reviews come in, it's hard to make any generalizations about how good the Magni is.  But judging on how popular Schiit is, I'd say this will really do well.  I still like the O2 because it offers the option of being battery powered.

Been saving up for the O2+ODAC but this would be a better save. mmph the O2+ODAC is still transportable compared to it but with almost $100 dollar difference. What to do?

Just wait for someone to demo the Schiit mini stack and then sell it. You'll easily pick it up for $50,

I doubt it would be $50. More around $70-75 Shipped.

if the reviews on this stack are good, I might pull the trigger on it instead of waiting (patiently) for the ODA to come out

The modi is; "USB Powered, No Drivers Modi plugs into virtually any computer—Windows or Mac—and requires no drivers to deliver great sound, up to 24/96 sampling rates. It features asynchronous transfer with individual crystal oscillators for the 44.1 and 48k sampling rates, and uses the USB Audio 1.0 standard over USB 2.0, and is powered by the USB port."

 

Sub optimal in my opinion. PC power is flaky and dirty and better results are usually obtained by a dac that has it's own power supply. If you use this I would at least use an external powered USB hub instead of plugging it straight into a computer. That makes a night and day difference for my HRT MSII.

I'm the guy who got to take the photos of the Magni and got to spend some extended listening time with serial#0001. I can tell you that the Magni is an impressive sounding amp for $399...except that its only $99! It was a crazy good match for my Grados, sounded fantastic with my LCD2's and even drove HE-4's to credible levels, tho that last pairing wasn't one I'd say was the best. The size is fantastic as is the build quality...no surprise there.

I would describe the sound as fast, clean and very dynamic. Bass is tight rather than bloated. You won't mistake it for a SE tube amp...it's Solid State is all its glory. I was shocked at how impact full the snare drums sounded. I'm not used to that nice sharp crack coming from Amos at this price point.

Needless to say, a Modi/Magni stack will grace the desk in my studio for some time to come.

Highly recommended!
