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.
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.
