Schiit Audio Magni 2 Headphone Amplifier

Schiit Audio

When we say “this is the only headphone amp you may ever need,” we mean it. Magni 2 builds on the performance of Magni, with even more refined sound and versatility,

  • Ready For Any Headphone

    Magni 2 is ready for any headphone, from IEMs to hard-to-drive orthodynamics. Switchable gain provides the fine control and low noise floor you need for sensitive headphones, as well as the power you need for hard-to-drive high-impedance headphones and orthos.

  • Even Better Sound and Performance

    Magni 2 uses a newly refined, fully discrete, constant-feedback gain stage. Yeah, we know, it sounds like engineering. But it’s important. Not only is Magni 2 the only fully-discrete amp in their price class, they also use a new gain stage with constant feedback across the entire audio band. No op-amp can claim to do this. In addition, If you need preamp outputs for powered desktop monitors (or for connecting to any power amplifier),

    Made in USA

    By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Magni 2 — 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.
