I've got a question, as someone new to headphones. Would it be possible for me to integrate headphone listening into my main stereo system?
Digital: Squeezebox Touch > PS Audio Nuwave DAC
Analog: Rega P5 turntable
Speakers: Ascend Acoustics - Sierra Towers
Each source runs to a Rega Brio-R integrated amp, to the speakers.
The Squeezebox is connected to the Nuwave DAC with a coax cable.
I plan on picking up a pair of Sennheiser 600 or 650's for home listening, and would love to get into a tube headphone amp, like a Woo Audio or something. I just have no clue how I could hook this up, along with the components I already have in place. The Brio-R has a pair of "tape out" jacks, but these are not line level pre-outs, from what I've read... I'm not sure that I understand this, exactly.
I suppose I would be willing to replace my DAC if necessary, to get one with a headphone pre-out or something, but I do like the Brio-R and would prefer to stick with it if possible.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much, as always.
