We’ve been keen at Hifi Pig to get hold of a couple of items from Schiit Audio for a while now as the company seem to Shiit Audio Headphone amp and DAChave a good attitude, offer good service and their prices seem to be very keen indeed.

We managed to get our hands on the Modi USB DAC ($99) and the Magni Headphone Amplifier ($99) and put them through their paces.

“It’s that time of year again when new students are getting ready to pop off to university for the first time and so we’ve been on the lookout for a few systems that we think satisfy a few essentials for today’s music loving academic.

Carting a full blown analogue front end, full range loudspeakers and the vinyl associated with this kind of system off to the other end of the country isn’t really feasible for the vast majority and not always desirable for your average Joe who wants a great sounding system that takes up little space and is portable. With this in mind we got hold of a couple of items from Schiit Audio that seemed to fit our needs.”
