I've got a pretty nice speaker setup, but I'd like to integrate headphones into the chain without buying dedicated components.
As such, I'd like to use headphones that can use speaker amps, such as the HE6 or the Stax.
My speaker amp is a 845 tube based SET tube amp, the Cary 805C.
(Link is to the AE version, but C is pretty much the same)
The speaker amp has a switch that I can set between 4-16ohms depending on the impedance of the speaker I'm using, along with corresponding speaker posts for the particular ohm setting.
Would I be able to use either a Stax SR007 w/ WEE or a HE6 with this speaker amp? I know the HE6 is a 50 ohm impedance, which is way higher than the highest ohm setting on my amp. If either one does work, what ohm setting shall I set it to? 4, 6, 8, 12, or 16? Or is it a case of, any setting is good and I just try to see which one sounds best? Most interested in if a SR007 w/ WEE pairing is electronically compatible.
