Prepare to rewrite the value equation in phono preamplifiers. Schiit's new Mani gives you the flexibility you need for both moving-magnet and moving-coil cartridges, together with exceptionally accurate, low-noise performance-for far less than you'd expect! Accepting All Cartridges! Many low-cost phono preamps are only good for typical moving-magnet (MM) cartridges. They don't have the gain needed for moving coil (MC), or the flexibility for high-output MM cartridges like Decca, or high-output MC cartridges that that might end up somewhere in the middle of the gain range. Mani, with 4 switchable gain modes, (30, 42, 47, and 59dB) is ready for any cartridge you can throw at it. Accurate, Quiet Passive RIAA Network Mani's RIAA network is implemented fully passively. What that means is there are no poles in the feedback loop, for more consistent sonic performance. Coupled with precision 2% film capacitors, 0.5% thin-film resistors, and super low-noise gain stages, Mani delivers superb accuracy and performance, even well beyond its modest price. Made in USA By "made in USA," we mean made in USA. That goes for everything we make. No excuses. No "assembled in USA" weasel-wording. The vast majority of the total production cost of our products-chassis, boards, assembly, etc-goes to US companies manufacturing in the US, from local suppliers only minutes away. Yep, the wall wart is from China, but hey, it's still a small part of the cost. 2-Year Warranty and 15-Day Returns Mani is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labor for two years. That's 2x the coverage of most amps in this price range. And, if you don't like Mani, you can send it back for a refund, minus 15% restocking fee, within 15 days of receiving your amp.
