Hi everyone, since I got my ODAC a month or so ago, I'm finding that I don't really need to use an amp anymore to get the volume that I want from my headphones, actually I have to turn the volume down a lot of times. I know that all my current headphones are low impedance - Grados and Denons - but still my initial impression was that to get the best out of my listening experience I was going to need to amp the signal from my ODAC, however I'm quite satisfied with the quality and volume of the ODAC output for my current circumstance.
That poses the question - Do I really need an amp with the ODAC?
For instance when I have the computer volume maxed out I can listen to Foobar at around 10 o'clock and it is plenty, and if I put Foobar volume beyond 12 it is too much. Let me know if anyone has had a similar experience and whether I should still try to use a amp or not.
