Hello, I am fairly new to headfi and the diy side of the house. I have done a good amount of research and not found very much solid info on this subject. So I thought I'd ask the experts.
As of now I have a vintage sansui amp, and I am planning on buying a tube small tube amp fairly soon. The headphones I'm using are k701s. I dont have a great headphone amp to use with the 701s so I got a little creative. I soldered 4 wires into a 3.5 female jack. I soldered 2 to the ground then 1 left and 1 right. on the amp I connected the wires to the left and right speaker terminals. This works pretty well with the sansui, but I have read it might not be safe for the amp. As I am getting a tube amp soon I was wandering if it is possible to do something similar. I did read that I may need to add resistors to protect the amp. Any way I was just wandering if anyone could give me a detailed explanation of exactly what I need to do, so I dont damage any of my equipment. Any info would be appreciated.
