Schiit is great stuff. The Magni 3 is out so the Magni 2's are being discounted to help clear them out. Fantastic amps!

As a true Slickdealer, I bought it and (maybe) regret later. But any opinions of this vs. Magni 3?

From what I have read so far, magni 3 is better and only $99 plus shipping. I ordered several magni 2 ubers but ended up cancelljng all of them. After all it's only $20-$30 cheaper than magni 3

My same reasoning on Magni 3. Of course we probably pay shipping..

Agree that the magni 3 is a better deal at $99 even with the shipping that hey charge extra. Also don't want to threadcrap but if you have Tidal hifi and really want to enjoy the max quality on the cheap I strongly recommend the meridian explorer 2 which decode natively mqa. It's a dac / amp for headphones. I am so impressed by it that I only use this one with my headphones now

As someone somewhat interested in making the jump to higher quality audio, what do I need to know about this? Do I just plug it into my computer, then my headphones into it?

Yes you can plug it in your computer and it will work. But since you said you wanted to jump into high quality audio, you would probably want a better day than your computer's dac, also play high quality audio files. And a high quality headphone unless you already have one.

You need RCA out (red and white cables) to work with these amps, which means you will probably need to buy a DAC as well. If you use the Schiit DAC these are made for, it will probably be

Computer -> USB cable -> DAC -> RCA cable -> this amp -> Headphones.

Keep in mind that the main investment in better audio is better headphones - the amp will only help a little, unless you get high impedance headphones that you *need* an amp to drive (any headphone review will mention if this is the case).

This is an amplifier without a DAC. People usually buy this to drive headphones with high impedance. You can read about amplifiers here:
