Schiit Magni 3 Headphone Amp and Preamp for $74 + tax

Sold by Schiit Audio, fulfilled by Amazon

https://www.amazon.com/Schiit-Mag...B07KWJ9QMN

Normal Schiit direct price: $99 + shipping
Normal Amazon price: $119 + tax

This is Amazon's #1 seller for headphone amps and considered by many to be the best bang for your buck in non-portable amps.

Just bought one, even got one day shipping. Here's hoping I don't get an Amazon return/exchange even though it says new..

It's a separate amplifier for your headphones. It takes the sound that comes out of your phone or computer and amplifies it - or takes the low-power output from an external DAC (audio decoder) and amplifies that for your headphones.

The two common use cases for this are:
- you have better-quality headphones that your average phone or computer output can't get loud enough (for example, the Sennheiser HD 650 / HD 6xx)
- you get an external DAC (audio decoder) for your phone or computer, so that instead of letting your phone decode the digital music, the DAC does it much better. Some DACs also have amplifiers built into them, but some don't - that's where this headphone amplifier comes in, it takes the low-volume output from the DAC and turns it into normal-volume output for your headphones. With a decent DAC and decent headphones, what you get is a huge improvement in the final quality of your music.

This "piece of Schiit" (I couldn't resist) is often paired with Schiit's Modi 3 DAC (also normally $119 on Amazon) - that pairing is commonly known as the "Schiit Stack".

Bit o' background: the Schiit Modi & Magni are a somewhat historic set of gear - along with the O2 and ODAC, they seem to have revolutionized the "cheap head-fi" genre when they were released ("cheap" meaning "two hundred somechange dollars" compared to "two thousand somechange dollars"). There are good alternatives to them now, but back when they were first released there ... just weren't?

Happens EVERY thread, I swear. Smilie

This is a solid price, hoping Schiit also has a sale on one of their DACs to match so we can get an official Schiit Stack.

Would this be good to pair with an SMSL M9? Looks to be a good deal.

Would this pair well with my Sennheiser PC 350 headset? The headset has very little bass when using any of my current audio sources.

Here's the specs of the PC 350:
frequency response: 10-26,000 Hz
impedance: 150 ohms
sensitivity: 108 dB

Killer deal. I bought this a couple months ago and paired with a MODI 3, very happy with the performance.
