The Schiit team has a new amp, called Magnius.
Magnius is a great-sounding, high-power, super-high-performance headphone amp and preamp with by far the best potentiometer of any amp anywhere near its price, and it includes both balanced and SE preamp outputs. At $199, it’s also 45-150% LESS than competitive products made in low-wage countries, while being designed and built right here in California.
Aaaand yes, as always, we are completely and utterly insane.

Magnius stacks perfectly with Modius, for a $398 DAC/Headphone Amp/Preamp combo.
