Hum no double amping unless he connect to the dedicated headphone out where is the built in headphone amp  , if he use an external amp such as o² he will plug it in their respective line out (RCA for titan HD ans jack 3.5 for Z) .

Medaud, thanks for respond. So, I'd like to clarify my post. I have Titanium HD. Sound quality I mean the music only. I have 250Ohm headphones and feel, that sound card cannot fully open them. Amp is necessary. I don't use of any DSP and CMSS 3D. Play games very rare. So, foobar (flac)+creative+O2 vs foobar (flac)+O2/ODAC without any dsp or other. Furthermore, it's possible to replace op apms on Creative.

Wrong! Built in amp in Titanium HD is crap, trash, useless. I use analog out (that much better!) for headphones.

Then only buy an O² , you don't need an ODAC .

You are right, I forgot the Titan HD has outs without amps.

DObleX I don't think you would get much sound difference if you exchange the Titan HD with an ODAC, unless you're using some DSP with the Titan HD. We all know of tom's Hardware blind test, you won't get better quality.

EDIT: I agree with HaVoC, if you're satisfied with your Titan HD setup, just get the O2.

HaVoC-28, Medaud, thanks! But I'd like to hear the owners, who have both and Titanium HD, and ODAC to make a final decision.
