    Proceeds will go to charity. Auction: Schiit Magni 3+ Headphone Amplifier B-Stock Signed by Jason Stoddard, the man himself. This will likely be a rare piece of gear going forward.

    The scratches on the top plate are evident in the photo. This unit was assembled at the new Schiit factory in Corpus Christi by Schiit workers. It is not an aftermarket deal where parts were cobbled together like the guy who sold the 666 Satan Nike shoes. The only difference is that a black volume knob is used to denote this special one of a kind piece of gear signed by Mr. Stoddard.

    Is there a "Made in Corpus Christi" or "Made in Texas" sticker on the unit? I remember reading/hearing Jason or someone saying they were going to put "Made in Corpus Christi" or "Made in Newhall" ("Made in Texas" / "Made in California") on the units that were made in those locations.

    It says shipping from Calabasas so probably not a Texas unit.

    edit: misinformation

    Likely. But it uses an external power brick so you can get whatever voltage you want afterwards. One thing though is that you need a 14VAC power supply which isn't exactly the easiest thing to find unless you order from Schiit

    As I mentioned in the first post, it's a unit assembled in the Corpus Christi factory. It's a Texas unit. Ebay UI sucks, need to change address in five different places. It will ship from Texas.

    110V.

    Anyway, bid away. Surely Jason's autograph is worth something?

    As it should. Jason is an American hero. In today's world, too many worship the false idols on Twitter, Instagram, Manyvids, etc. This while Jason actually freely gives business advice and creates affordable audio products for all audio religions while creating manufacturing jobs all the up the supply chain.

    Heck, even those who eventually graduated to ORFAS land (LOL, myself included) have used some sort of Schiit along the way or still may have a piece or two next to a computer or passed down to kids.

    This is for a good cause. I want to use whatever little money this generates to help the less fortunate. Still thinking of charities. And no, it ain't gonna be Girl Scouts or the Gates Foundation.

    Win/Win - a Magni 3+ could also be a good replacement for my "special" L30.

    Very Cool. If the winner is a member of this site will you let them have any input on the charity?

    The magni and the modi are insane value if you’re on a budget or don’t know what you want, ie what you really want, not what you want because you read about it on the internet.

    This would be cool to own. Apparently there was the option to have Mike autograph your DAC when I got my Bifrost 2 but I wasn't aware and missed out :(

    I'm almost tempted to bid like $200 on this and hope it's enough, even just to have it as a collector piece. Doubt I would go above that, though.
