Magni is the only completely discrete earphone amp under $100 that is made in the USA. Delivering 1.2 W of power into 32 ohms, Magni is ready for virtually any headphone-including lots of hard-to-drive orthodynamic designs.
Discrete Design, DC Coupled
If you ain't into engineering, you can probably avoid this section. But it is very important. All other amps in this price range use op-amps for gain. Not Magni. It uses a discrete gain stage design, with low-noise JFET inputs, quick VAS transistors, and enormous output power transistors. The outcome is greater existing capability for greater power output. We have actually also made use of a DC servo to get rid of coupling caps from the signal course.
From IEMs to Orthos
Magni is peaceful enough for lots of IEMs, however provides up to 1.2 W into 32 ohms, which is plenty for lots of orthodynamic headphones. Magni is versatile enough to be a "do all" amplifier-it might be the only amp you ever require.
Made in USA
By "made in USA," we imply made in USA. The huge majority of the total production expense of Magni-chassis, boards, assembly, etc-goes to United States business producing in the United States. Our board residence is 20 minutes far from our workplace in Newhall. Our chassis men are just over the hillside in the Valley. Yep, the wall wart is from China, however there you go. There is some give and take to reach this price point.
