No, it can produce adequate volume but I won't say it can "drive".... even LCD3 isn't driven "properly" by portable setups. Listenable? Yes. The gap for LCD3 on 901 vs desktop rigs is not too big but still noticeable. HD800 more so, and HE6 even more. And I'm not comparing bespoke desktop rigs but just a lowly Audio-Gd NFB28 ess9018 balanced DAC/AMP that is cheaper than the hm901+balanced card.
