I've sent my magni back to Schiit THREE TIMES NOW. THREE times. The reason I send it back is becuase it makes a wretched infernal noise in the right ear cup. It sounds like static, when I touch the magni the sound goes way. It also creates something that sounds like interference that goes up and down in frequency.
I have paid $100 in shipping for a $100 product to send it back to schiit THREE ******* times.
Solutions that i have tried(PLEASE DO NOT SUGGEST THESE, OR I MAY SEND MY HEAD THROUGH A WALL)
-New USB cable(4 of them, from monoprice)
-I have gotten a cable splitter that takes the two outputs from my Modi DAC and puts them straight into my headphones. NO interference.
-I've tried different headphones
-I have tried different headphone cables
-I have tried different RCA cables from Modi>Magni
-I have tried casting a magic spell on the magni
-I have had other family members listen to it, they hear the noise but apparently schiit techs can't.
-When i sent my magni back the third time I sent a very strongly worded letter saying that my magni better be functional when it returns. I am not sure if they even opened the bloody thing.
-I have tried different wall power receptacles
-I have tried different computers
-I have tried different USB ports
-My old computer did it, I built a new computer and it still does it evne with the new mobo
-I've tried my headphones on their own in a different setup and the headphones do not produce any noise
This is literally going to send me over the edge, I spent $500 on this setup and this WRETCHED INFERNAL NOISE won't go away.
