    Anybody with a Vali 2 ordering a Magni 3?

    I'd love to hear some comparisons before purchasing.

    It is my opinion that for relatively smooth treble, the Vali 2, Asgard 2 and Lyr 2 are the best options for Schiit amps. I own the Vali 2 because it suits my needs(power and preference for smooth treble) and has a price point of under $200. I am curious as to whether the Magni 3 has smooth treble.

    I have a Modi 2 / Vali 1 combo and just ordered the Magni 3. Got a pair of AKG K7XX. As much as I like the Vali, I can't stand the microphonics every time I touch the volume knob. Back to solid state !

    I'm interested to see how this will compare with the Asgard 2 given that the Magni 3 stemmed from the development of the Asgard 3 and is less than half the price.

    I really curious on how it compares to the jotunheim's SE connection. Since it looks like the magni 3 packs alot of power for its small size.

    I'm considering buying a Magni 3 to go with my Mimby/Vali 2 stack as well. Looking forward to reading your impressions!

    Ordered a Magni 3, currently using a Maverick D2 DAC, we'll see how it sounds soon. I'll be comparing it with a Meier Corda Aria as well as a LD MKIII.

    I think I'm gonna try one downstream from my Saga, a la 'Sagaheim'. Previously I had a Vali 2 (among many other Schiit amps), but had to sell off a bunch of stuff. I'm curious how Saga > Magni 3 will compare to the Vali 2, which I found to very enjoyable.

    Magni 3 can do balanced. Just buy two and a splitter. Still $200 cheaper than the Jot and nothing less than 6W RMS @ 16 Ohms.

    ok guys question: i can swap my M2 for an M3 (I use mrspeakers Aeon so don't REALLY need the extra power). BUT the switch will cost me $50-$70....should i do it?
     
  14. TjPhysicist
    is that really how that works? i just hook up w magni's to my modi via a splitter and now i have a balanced mega-magni?

    How do you convert the two 3 pole 1/4" to a single 4 pin xlr?

    You would need to pin out the XLR male jack with:
    pin 1: left T+R
    pin 2: left S
    pin 3: right T+R
    pin 4: right S

    Dunno where you would buy such a cable...

    Schiit should do an Aprils fools joke that puts two Vidars in monoblock into a single larger chassis and adds the specs together
