HI. Just bought D2K. Will be using them on pc. Sound card is xonar dx so i decided to buy a second hand receiver as cheaper than headphone dedicated amp/dac.

What would be better...?

Yamaha RX-V450 with 150mV/100Ω

or

Yamaha RX-V371 with 100mV/470Ω

or maby other sugestions??

Im new in the audio world :) and sry about my english.

Thanks.

Noone knows about ohms and wolts?

Impedance is resistance, measured in Ohms.

 

Receiver's headphone jacks usually have a high impedance (Ohms), and the Denon AH-D2000 is only 25-Ohms.

and you really want to use with the AH-D2000 a headphone output with a low impedance, like 3.125-Ohms or less.

You want the headphone impedance to be 8 times or more of the headphone output jack's impedance.

The O2 (Objective 2) portable headphone amplifier ($155) comes with a low impedance of under 1-Ohm.

The O2 can function like a normal AC powered desktop head amp.

 

The Fiio E11 portable headphone amplifier ($51) has an impedance of under 1-Ohm

The Xonar DX is a good sound card, not great at driving headphone.

So plugging any external headphone amplifier into the Xonar DX is a great combo.
