Schiit Magni 2 Uber?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if the Magni 2 uber works as a pre-amp to use between my Modi 2 uber and an amplifier? Reason being is I need a pre-amp so i can adjust the volume of my amp and speakers. However i also need a headphone jack for when i'm not using my speakers.

 

I recently switches to larger speakers that have an amplifier however the amplifier has multiply controls to control each channel. I just wan't a single knob to change the volume and a headphone jack.

Per Schiit's FAQ for the Magni 2U, yes it does.

"Preamp Outputs: Uber has them, standard doesn’t."

Yes but does the volume knob work with the RCA jacks when the 3.5mm jack isn't being used?

 

EDIT: NVM i missed it on their site it does say it is. "Preamp Output: Yes, controlled by volume pot and switched via headphone jack"
