Product Description

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.
