Don’t sweat it, This Schiit product is covered by a 2 Years manufacturer's warranty.
Everything is fine about this phono ,anyone can buy it as price is also affordable,the only thing bugged me was,this is 110 v us version so the Indian version power adapter felt cheap Chinese , although built quality of adapter is above average.phono amp performance is superb, fantastic,mind blowing at this price level
I was on the lookout for a phono amp that will not break the bank as i just wanted to try out the difference the amp would make in the sonic signature. I use a rega planar 1 with Marantz Pm6004 amplifier and Q Acoustics 3050 towers. I did not expect to be knocked off my feet. the treble and mid range became more airy for lack of a better word. The instrument separation became better and overall, the sound was cleaner and more open. At the price point, this si a sure fire winner.
Schiit - Mani
At first I would like to thank Mr.Ragav & his team for providing us the product in India and also like to request them to make available more turntable accessories like (cartridges, stylus etc.) in reasonable price like they did for Mani.
I booked the product on 7th June at 11.45 AM and delivered on 8th at 14.30 hrs from Chennai to Kolkata, it is really unbelievable for me surprising as well.
Came early from office for my Mani and connected with my stereo system Audio Technica AT LP120, AT95E cart, Schhit Mani peramp and Onkyo HT-S3300 amp.
After setting the Mani's gain at 59db noise distortion started so, I fixed it at 48db and and it is started sounding nice. After few hrs of continuous listening sound improved quite a lot. Next Saturday and Sunday was my weekly off so,I tried to pullout the built in peramp as advised at Youtube by various AT turntable owner. It took one n a half hrs to get the job done and now no built in preamp in between my AT95E cart and Schiit Mani, so I was able to achieve the actual audio quality from my AT95E cart. It was superb experience for me and now I am happy enough to spend huge amount to get such audio quality. Mani not only improves the bass but it also improves high frequencies as well. The clicks and pops are there but it is not so prominent when built in preamp was there. Previously it feels like I am listening a recorded music but now it feels like the artist performing in front of me.
Finally, if you are fond of music of yesteryear's then " Vinyl Is Final", nothing is comparable with it's analog sound quality.
Stereo setup - Technics TT having M44 cart - Mani Pre - Onkyo TX DS939 receiver - Dali Z5 FS.
First impression - simple but good packing, Solid build, Good connectors, Lot of gain settings for different carts.
Sound quality - listened through it for one week and noticed lot of improvement in SQ. On Sunday i bypassed mani to compare it with my receiver's inbuilt preamp (flagship avr of onkyo) and then i can feel what i was missing. In my view if it can show its nails over my receiver then it can be compared to 10x priced phono pre with out any doubt.
Just started using it. The TT is sounding really awesome now.
Mani is well built and awesome value for money.
