Magnius simply blows up the value equation in balanced headamps: high power, superb measurements, best volume control, designed and built in California—unlike other measurement-focused amps that cost 50-150% more. Boom.

No-Compromise Power, Precision, and Control

Have hard-to-handle headphones? No problem. Super-sensitive IEMs that demand a vanishingly low noise floor? Yep, you’re good. Want a volume control that delivers great matching all the way down? You got it. In technical terms, Magnius delivers 5000mW from its balanced headphone output at 32 ohms, with THD+N approaching -120dB, and it’s huge Alps 4-gang balanced pot gives you fine control and excellent tracking small potentiometers simply can’t match. 

The Most Magnificent Pot

Many amps at and above this price use small 9mm potentiometers. But an Alps RK27114 27mm “Blue Velvet” potentiometer is a completely different experience. Get ready for excellent channel matching at all potentiometer positions, as well as a smooth, gradual action that lets you find exactly the right volume. We chose the RK27114 because it’s one of the most important components of the amp, the one you interact with all the time.

Magnius uses a handful of very 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 Schiit's best-measuring amp. And it out-measures a whole lot of other gear out there, at much higher prices.

Flexibility for Your Entire Desktop

Magnius isn’t just a headphone amp. It also has balanced and single-ended preamp outputs, so you can 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.

Perfect Pair With Modius

If you’re looking for a great-sounding, great-measuring balanced DAC to pair with Magnius, look no farther than Modius to create an end-game desktop stack. These two components were developed together, are exactly the same size, and stack perfectly on a desktop. 

Designed and Built in California

By “designed and built in California" the vast majority of the total production of Magnius—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—is manufacturing in the USA. Schiit's chassis are made minutes from the facility. Schiit's PCBs are done just over the hill. Yes, the wall-warts are made in Taiwan, but there's some give and take at this price point. 

2-Year Warranty 

Magnius is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labour for two years.
