Nice work on the cable Jason.
Sonic D, Unless someone has tried your headphones with your amp you'll just have to hook them up and give it a try. Just have the volume knob at zero and turn it up slowly and decide if you like it. You may hear some hiss since it's a powerful amp but only you can decide if it's acceptable. If it isn't you could add a resistor network to attenuate the amp's output or simply give up on that amp.
Silver, we are not using the 'headphone stage.' This thread is about connecting headphones directly or through a resistor network to a speaker amp's speaker terminals.
If it upsamples everything why does the DAC have all the lights showing the bit rate? Anyway discerning upsampling 'noise' is beyond my ears capability.
 I totally agree. To really appreciate the DAC you need to hear it connected to a nice amp.
 Sorry, I thought it was 100 per channel. Then the box should work fine.
The only problem is that box is only rated for 50w per channel so you'd limit your max volume for your speakers.
Thanks hennessys.
No, sorry, I don't know of anyone making them commercially.
 The amount of attenuation you need is situation dependent. If you have just a little noise floor hiss or just need a little more volume control then 12dB might be appropriate. If you need more then 18 and if you're using a 100+ watt amp then 25dB or more might be warranted. For most people going with 18dB to start with is probably best.
