INTRODUCING AN ALL-NEW HEADPHONE AMP AND PREAMP - THE MAGNIUS
Schiit as a brand needs no introduction; they have been the veterans in the audio industry since Schiit started back in the year, 2010. All Schiit products have been highly versatile and offer great flexibility. Schiit is known for its headphone amplifier line-up that offers elite-level sonic performance and amplification. Schiit taking all the experience through the years is proud to introduce their all-new headphone amplifier, the Magnius. The Magnius blows up the value equation in balanced headphone amplifiers: high power, superb measurements, and the best volume control.
AN EPITOME OF POWER, PRECISION, AND CONTROL FUSED WITH A DEDICATED GAIN SWITCH
Schiit has designed the Magnius to be the ideal amp for power-demanding headphones or super-sensitive IEMs. It has a vanishingly low noise floor when you use it with sensitive IEMs. To allow you to pair your power-demanding headphones and sensitive IEMs, Schiit has provided a gain switch. It has a volume control that delivers perfect channel matching without any clinks. In technical terms, Magnius delivers 5000mW from its balanced headphone output at 32 ohms, with THD+N approaching -120dB, and its Alps 4-gang Balanced pot gives you fine control and excellent tracking.
FEATURES BLUE VELVET POTENTIOMETER OFFERING PERFECT CHANNEL MATCHING
The Schiit Magnius features an Alps RK27114 27mm Blue Velvet potentiometer that gives you a completely different experience. Get ready for excellent channel matching at all potentiometer positions and a smooth, gradual action that lets you find the right volume. Experience the perfect level of channel matching while you control the volume!
COMPOSITE INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY PRODUCES VANISHINGLY LOW LEVELS OF NOISE
The Schiit Magnius uses a handful of high-end integrated circuits, including buffers with feedforward, exotic fully differential op-amps, and powerful current-feedback outputs in a composite configuration to reduce THD and noise to vanishingly low levels. If you’re looking for measurements, Magnius is the best-measuring amp.
DOUBLES-UP AS A PREAMP FOR YOUR SPEAKERS AND A PERFECT MATCH WITH MODIUS E BALANCED DAC
The Schiit Magnius isn’t just a headphone amp. It also has balanced and single-ended preamp outputs, allowing you to connect to powered monitors for a complete system. It also has both balanced and single-ended inputs and two gain levels. And all these connections use best-in-class Neutrik connectors, together with Alps signal switches, for ultimate integrity and reliability. If you’re looking for a great-sounding, great-measuring balanced DAC to pair with Magnius, look no further than Modius E to create an end-game desktop stack.
EXQUISITELY CRAFTED AND BUILT IN CALIFORNIA
The vast majority of the total production cost of Magnius chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc., goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. The chassis are made minutes from Schiit's facility. The PCBs are done just over the hill. The entire design of the Magnius is well-crafted and emanates confidence. The front panel consists of an Input switch, Gain switch, Volume knob, and 6.35mm & Balanced 4-pin XLR headphone outputs. The rear panel is also very well structured. It consists of Balanced input (3-pin XLR), Single-Ended input (RCA), Balanced preamp output (3-pin XLR), Single-Ended preamp output (RCA), Power On-Off switch, and AC input.

The Schiit Story
The story of Schiit Audio begins with two veteran audiophiles Jason Stoddard, formerly of Sumo, and Mike Moffat, formerly of Theta coming together to shake things up a bit. Both of them have extensive experience in developing lots of audio and A/V products including the Andromeda III, Cobalt 307, DS Pre and Angstrom 200. From power amplifiers, I/V conversion stages, D/A converters, relay-switched stepped attenuator volume controls in preamps to developing the first DTS home theatre surround processor on the market, Schiit Audio has developed a lot of audio products over the years.
Getting into Designing Headphones
Headphones are the need of the hour everyone who likes music uses a headphone. Therefore Schiit Audio moved to develop personal audio equipment while continuing to design a speaker-based system which includes the industry-leading preamps, amps and DACs. So right now Schiit Audio has a plethora of audio products ranging from personal audio to speaker-based systems. Schiit designs affordable audio products that bring happiness in your lives.
True Multibit DACs and Unique Digital Filter
Unlike ordinary DACs that use delta-sigma, NOS (new old stock) D/A chips, multibit chips, high-cost R2R ladders, Schiit uses unique DSP-based closed-form digital filter which improves the sonic performance of the multibit DAC. Therefore the Schiit's multibit technology brings all of it together using the current-production, medical/military grade D/A converters.
Innovation in Analog
Schiit has opted for an innovative approach for the analog side as well. Even the most affordable Schiit headphone amplifier is a miniature, fully discrete, DC coupled, current-feedback power amplifier. Schiit is credited for introducing Continuity output stage to solve the issue of transconductance droop which was common in Class AB amplifier design. Schiit has also developed balanced topologies like Nexus in Ragnarok 2 and a perfect combination of tube and solid-state with Coherence in Lyr 3.
Designed with High-End Materials for Durability
All the Schiit products are designed for solidity and durability. Even the smallest of the products are made of aluminium and steel while the larger products are made of high-end C core transformers, power supply filtering and low-noise control. All the products have to go through severe testing procedures including the latest APx555 audio analyzer and Avermetrics analyzers. Every product from Asgard and up goes through burn-in to address the issues faced during the initial period of usage. Schiit takes care of all the service and support requirements so that you can concentrate on great sound.
Handcrafted in the USA
Schiit believes that local control of all the aspects of production improves the delivering of the product. Therefore all the Schiit products are designed and made in the USA and most of the cost of the components are going to the US-based companies. Assembled in the USA means that Schiit's chassis guys are from San Fernando Valley, Schiit transformers are made in California, Schiit boards come from the east coast of the USA and all the designing, assembling and testing of Schiit products happen in Valencia, California.
