Hello everyone. I've researched for months and have had several changes of heart, but I ultimately have decided that I will purchase the Beyerdynamic DT880s and use them as my main stationary listening phones to complement my hd595s. The dilemma I face is knowing which version to buy, and I have been heavily leaning toward the 600 ohm version for its higher potential and for scaling. I have an old late 80's/early 90's Kenwood KA-88 integrated stereo amplifier that I have yet to set up, but is fully functional.
Would this amp be sufficient to power the DT880 at 600 ohms? I have a spec sheet on this amplifier that says it provides both channels with 120+120 watts of power at 8 ohms. (Feel free to ask me for more information.) Being completely new to dedicated amps and not being a math whiz, I have no idea what this means. If I could avoid having to buy an expensive amp for the Beyers, it would be a big relief to me financially and I could always scale up later to a better amp. If my amp is completely insufficient, I probably will delay my purchase until I can afford a decent amp. Any information or advice from those who know the DT880s or amps would be tremendously appreciated.
