 It takes about 3 seconds to google it and see that Marantz says in every single spec sheet that it uses a dedicate headphone amplifier. Why would I assume it's better? Well I don't assume, I heard the things side by side with Beyerdynamic T1's several times, I mean, every hi-fi shop I go to, it's stacked in Marantz gear, it's not like we're talking about exotic stuff here. You can buy a PM6004 on a petrol station probably.
Did anyone try the brand new DT770 Pro's lately? I just got the 250 Ohm version, the newest one, in that new box with an opening flap, the carrying bag, etc.  Is it just me or do they sound significantly better than they used to?  I mean, I had every headphone in the Beyerdynamic DT lineup, 770Pro 80, 770Pro 250, 880 600, 990Pro 250, as well as T1's, as several cheaper not so popular, but still awesome models like DTX-910 (aaaaaa-fcking-mazing for the price btw), etc. so I...
  So...let me get this straight. You don't want to listen to the headphones with the stock cable, but you know that the aftermarket cable makes them sound much better?
6005 has a dedicated DAC and a dedicated headphone amplifier. Haven't heard them with speakers, but 6005 is superior for headphones.
  How are you creating your mp3's?  Because a properly ripped 320 kbps mp3 should be virtually indistinguishable from a FLAC.  I mean, I can't tell a difference between a 24/192 hi-res file and a 320 mp3 made out of that 24 bit file on Beyerdynamic T1's plugged into a 2000 dollar DAC/amp. I'm talking about ABX testing in Foobar...in 99% of cases can't even notice the slightest difference. Only with some extreme examples there might be tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny differences in...
 Well I can tell you that a Nuforce HDP (which is much more powerful than Udac) barely has enough juice for K612's and with some silent recordings, like binaural stuff, sometimes not enough volume.
 I agree. To be honest, I was very skeptical at first. I kind of thought that Schiit as a company was over-hyped because they're so involved in the head-fi community, and therefore a lot of people relate to them more and automatically buy and like their products more. But I was very surprised to see that this is a VERY serious product (despite the silly name) in every sense of the word, it's what I like to call a finished product, it feels like someone put a lot of effort...
  Yea it seems the best way to do it. When the volume is turned all the way down, there's no noise at all audible when plugging the headphones in...in fact, even when the volume is up, there's only a barely audible crackle if I don't push the plug all the way in and it's sort of loose.
Just got my Asgard 2, and right out of the box I'm very impressed. With T1's the synergy is great to my ears. Nice weight to the bass, smooth and liquid sound, but well controlled. Basically... Musical Fidelity M1HPAP has finally been beaten as far as the T1 pairings go, and by an amp that costs 3 times less. Compared to similarly priced stuff...for example, Nuforce HDP used as a headamp, the Asgard is FAR better. Nuforce sounds like a laptop headphone output in...
  Not to bust your balls, but I hear that tongue movement on a pair of Sennheiser HD202's plugged into a laptop. :P
