Lurker here. First time poster.
I have a question. I recently acquired the Sennheiser HD650's and i have a Cakewalk FA-66 firewire audio interface. Do I need a quality headphone amp?
here is my firewire audio interface
I want to mix and attempt to master certain aspects of my songs with them. I have yamaha hs80m monitors that I will use for final mastering/mixing, but at nights I want to use my headphones for my wife sleeping.
Anyways, people say HD650's do justice with a proper headphone amp. However I already have the FA-66 audio interface. Does this double as a good amp? Do I even need a headphone amp? I tried to search the specs of the output power of the headphone jack on the interface but I couldn't find it on the website or the manual.
The only reference towards any amp is the preamp for the xlr inputs. im a newbie please help.
-Purchased Sennheiser HD650's
-I have Cakewalk FA-66 firewire audio interface
-Do I need a headphone amp, or will the interface do?
If I do need an amp, could you recommend one for around $250? I seen good review of the Schiit Asgard, but they are backordered.
Thanks a ton in advance
