The results are better measurements from the integrated amplifier circuits in the left and right channels. The third harmonic distortion on the Heresy is about 6 dB lower than the Magni 3+ and it has slightly less measurable noise.
How many ohms can the Magni 3 handle?
|Maximum Power 16 ohms
|2.8W RMS per channel
|Maximum Power 32 ohms
|2.4W RMS per channel
|Maximum Power 50 ohms
|1.6W RMS per channel
Is Magni 3 a preamp?
The variable-gain RCA outputs make it possible to use the Magni 3 as an analog preamplifier, which you can connect to either a pair of powered loudspeakers or to a power amplifier.
Can I use the Magni without the DAC?
The Magni 3 uses a wall wart for the power supply and does not require a being connected to your computer via USB. Despite what other comments seem to say, you do NOT need the Modi or another DAC in order to connect and use the Magni 3 with a source like a computer or phone etc. Hope this helps.
