Forgive my phrasing, yes the op-amp driving the headphones. I hope it is on par with the rest of the 976...doing a lot of headphone listening late night. Thanks for the reply smile

Thank you, Helson. I was just trying to ascertain if a separate headphone amp would sonically improve the signal when listening thru headphones.

Thank you, Helson. I am looking to power a set of Beyerdynamic DT 770 250 ohm headphones, and wanted to be sure the 976 had enough power to drive them.

Why not try them and see if the 976 meets your needs. If it does you save $$$ on an amp.

I tried them, and unfortunately, it does not. Ended up with AKG K553 MKII Closed-back 32 ohm Studio Headphones...much greater sensitivity. Can't hook up a headphone amp anyway...due to no Line Level Outs on the 976 per Outlaw Support.
