@Longbowbbs . Yes . Definitely yes. Very good combination. Mine is an old one without any headphone output and its sounds very well. I listened to way more hi end dac this saturday ( TEAC UD 501 and Audio GD ref5) and my old an low-fi dacmagic really does a good job. Neutral, slightly warm and smooth sound .. good combo with HD800. Nevertheless, the Audio GD reference 5 is very impressive with HD800 IMO ;). I compared my amps too . And both MG head and Corda Jazz competed very well against such amps as trafomatic Head one and a HDVD800 ( this last amp gives in my opinion the best result with an impressive authority but it's not "night and day" compared to my cheaper amps ). I didn't heard any improvement from the trafomatic against my old MG head.
I'm definitely happy with my current rig.
