Seems like a good deal for a well-reviewed entry-level audiophile amp. Should be a good match for those who picked up the Sennheiser HD6xx Massdrop deal.

With shipping comes out to $70.xx, which is a couple of bucks cheaper than the previous front page deal at $74: https://slickdeals.net/f/13629805-schiit-magni-3-headphone-amp-and-preamp-74-tax-at-amazon?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

Don't forget tax. I had no tax with Amazon. So, these deals vary.

Does "Schiit" refer to the quality?

Thankfully no. Even at the $99 price point they're pretty much considered unparalleled or at least were a few years ago. $59 is a no brainer Smilie

I'm still really bad with understanding my record player hardware.

Since I'm rocking a Technics SL-1650 that I was able to fix up on my own, I definitely need a pre-amp. And I was looking to get a Schitt Mani.

Does this Magni 3 only serve as a pre-amp for headphone listening, and does not output to speakers?

SORRY, I should've just read the item description, it does appear that it also serves as a pre-amp for RCA stereo speakers. This is beyond a no-brainer for me, I'm assuming that it performs as good for Speakers as a Schitt Mani does.

I use both since I want to listen to vinyl sometimes with speakers and sometimes with headphones. You can use a Mani straight to your powered speakers/amp with line inputs or daisy chain it to the Magni 3 and then have the M3 go to the line inputs. The M3 will feed the headphones first - if you unplug them it will send the signal out the pre-amps. It will not send both at the same time and it will not be able to drive a turntable. You absolutely need something else and not just a Magni 3.

That middle device is an equalizer; Loki.
