Hello. I own a little Marantz 2015 receiver which I hook all my components on my desk up to, I have my Millet Hybrid tube amp hooked up through the tape out, but recently after switching between the amp and the headphone jack on the receiver I have began to question the boost in sound quality (if any) from using the amp.
My real question is: should the Millet Hybrid tube amp technically sound better than the headphone out on the Marantz 2015 receiver? I don't exactly have audiophile ears and am thinking the amp is really unnecessary. I know I'll probably get responses, "use whatever sounds better to you". Well I can't decide, but I will keep the amp if it is technically better.
