Schiit Audio launches Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy Headphone amp, and Preamp

Schiit Magni is the smallest and the cheapest headphone amp in the Schiit Audio family has just been introduced two new upgraded versions called Schiit Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy.

It is important to note that the two models will be introduced and sold in parallel for a short time, after which the higher sales model will be retained and the other one will leave.

Schiit Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy both have a capacity of 2400mW into 32 ohms, so users can comfortably use from in-ear headphones to Planar Magnetic models that are difficult to pull. However, in terms of technical design, these two models are completely different:

Schiit Magni 3+ headphone amp is using the traditional full-discrete current-feedback design of the previous Schiit Audio. However, the new PCB circuit design from 2 floors to 4 floors, comes with an additional driver and Vbe Multiplier circuit. This makes the Magni 3+ look like a miniature Vidar for headphones. THD + N distortion up to -106db / 1Vrms measured at 32 ohms, up to 10dB lower than the previous version.

Schiit Magni 3+ headphone amplifier has been priced at $119 and can be purchased through Amazon.com in Silvery Gray color like previous Schiit products.

Magni Heresy, on the other hand, comes with a lot of changes in the design of Schiit Audio. It was the first time Schiit used an op-amp amplifier design with OPA1662 chip for gain stage and 8 OPA1688 chips in feedforward mode for the output stage. This product is measured on the Audio Precision system for very low distortion THD + N -113db / Vrms at 32 ohms, lower than even Magni 3+.

Magni Heresy has also been priced at $119 and available to buy via Amazon.com in a new Red and Black color, to reflect its innovation.

Of course, these two models will have different sound qualities. To determine who was better, Schiit decided to organize a battle royale called Thunderdome with Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy. The final decision is Schiit’s customer, whichever model has a better sale will become the official Magni model.
