Schiit Mani 2

Schiit Mani 2 Phono Stage gives you high performance at low cost 

Mani 2 is simply the highest-performance affordable phono preamp, period. With super low noise and high RIAA accuracy, plus flexibility for pretty much any cartridge, MM, MC, or MI, it sets the standard for performance and capability in an affordable phono stage.  

Simply Stunning Performance

Mani 2 provides super low-noise performance that’s usually only seen in much more expensive phono preamps. Combining TI’s low-noise OPA1612 with a passive RIAA network with 2% precision film capacitors and 0.1% thin-film resistors in a DC-coupled topology, with advanced dual-filtered power supply and +/-16V rails, as well as switchable 1- or 2-pole passive LF filter, provides exceptional transparency and accuracy, as well as high overload margin, in an affordable phono preamp.

Ultimate Flexibility—Loading, Gain, and LF Filtering

Mani 2 doesn’t sacrifice flexibility for low-cost, either. In fact, Mani 2 is the most flexible, capable affordable phono preamp, period. You have total control over:

Gain: Choose 35, 45, 50, or 60dB of gain, for virtually any cartridge from Decca to low-output MC and MI models.

Loading: Choose 47KΩ, 200Ω, 47Ω, or 38Ω, and 47pF, 100pF, 150pF, or 200pF for virtually any MM, MC, or MI cartridge

LF Filter: Choose 6dB/octave or 12dB/octave of purely passive low-frequency filtering to help with warped records or other subsonic problems.

Designed and Built in Texas

By “designed and built in Texas,” this is what we mean: Mani 2 was designed and built at Schiit's Corpus Christi, Texas facility, and the vast majority of the Mani 2—chassis, boards, assembly, etc are manufactured in the USA. Our chassis are made in California. Our PCBs are done in Nevada. Yes, the wall-warts are made in Taiwan, but there's some give and take at this price point. 

Mani 2 is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labour for two years.
