Go ahead. Compare the third-generation Magni to anything out there at its price. We think you’ll find there’s really no competition. This is no “starter amp.” Magni has the power, performance, resolution, and versatility to meet all your needs—no matter the headphone.
Ready For Any Headphone
Magni 3 is ready for any headphone, from IEMs to hard-to-drive planar designs. With a full 2000mW into 32 ohms—rated in the most honest way, RMS continuous, both channels driven—Magni has tremendous reserves of power. Combined with low distortion, an exceptionally low noise floor, and switchable gain, Magni is ready for any headphone.
Powered Monitors Welcome, Too
Magni 3 includes preamp outputs. This means you can connect it to your desktop powered monitors for a complete system—or even connect it to a speaker power amp and use it as a preamp. With its built-in time-delayed start-up and instant shut-down, there’ll be no glitches or pops through either headphones or speakers, either.
Forget $99—Compare at Many Times the Price
Most headphone amps in Magni’s price range use op-amps (integrated chips) for gain and power output. Not Magni. Magni’s gain stage is an-all-new, fully discrete, high-speed, dc-coupled, current-feedback design, completely different than the first and second-generation Magnis. This current-feedback gain stage is typically only found in very exotic designs that sell for more than 10x the Magni’s price.
Made in USA
By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Magni—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our board house is 20 minutes away from our office, and our chassis guys are just over the hill in the Valley. Yep, the wall warts are from China, but there you go. There is some give and take to reach this price point.
