Good news! Which headphone are you using? (too lazy to scroll up and see if this has already been communicated...)

OK, so that would indeed scale nicely with more power, from what I've heard of them. They aren't necessarily power hungry, but they aren't known for being efficient, either.
That's a great way to protect it when not using it. No scratches.
I just got my XP8000 today, Motherflapper!!
I now officially love this little amp!
First and only headphone I've tried so far with the regulated 15v thingymajigg is the Grado Rs1 and it has really made a world of difference. The Grados are low impedence, but really do need some juice for them to shine.
Question, when the xp8000 is plugged into the Quickstep, does the amp's LED automatically illuminate, regardless of the position of the amp's power(volume) switch being turned off??
I have no idea, to be honest.
I just assume somebody would've said something by now, if there were any worries.
I had also tried it with a wallwart I had lying around, and the light turns on even when the amp is off.
Yes - it's perfectly OK. We all experience this with external power.
