Schiit Audio is following up their original Magni headphone amplifier and Modi USB DAC that were introduced about two years ago, with next generation: Magni 2 and Modi 2 models, as well as Uber models of each of these latest versions. The Magni 2 and Modi 2 hold at the same price as the original but have added flexibility and performance, while the Magni 2 Uber and Modi 2 Uber take the up the performance level even further, while still remaing very affodable.
The Magni 2 now has gain switching and the Modi 2 now has 24/192 capability. The Uber Magni 2 adds preamp outputs and higher power, while the Modi 2 Uber is essentially a mini-Bifrost, with optical, coaxial, and USB inputs.

Magni 2: all-new discrete headphone amp with 1.2W RMS per channel and switchable high/low gain, together with a refined constant-feedback gain stage at $99 U.S.
