Thanks. Odd why the line out level is so obviously lower than headphone out at max volume. I could not hear any difference in quality with line out vs headphone out, so will try and find a decent mini cable to use instead. I know Sony 'beefed up' the wiring to the headphone socket, but don't know if similar for line out socket, so wonder if headphone out is as / more favourable. Anyone spotted any obvious difference in sound?
