Creative SB X-Fi Titanium HD + Amp

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi people, I wonder if anyone knows any good amp that I can connect into my Titanium card and back my AKG 550s phones?

 

I bought the card but I don't think it has enough power to really get the best out of my 550s, but I still want to use the card.

I just need an amp so I don't get distortion when I crank up the volume.

 

Thanks for any help.

The headphone jack on the T-HD (Titanium HD) can provide way more power then the K550 could ever use.

But, the T-HD's headphone jack also has a high impedance, 35-Ohms, which can cause things like a bloated bass to the 32-Ohm K550s.

The Schiit Magni headphone amplifier, $99, has a low output impedance 1-Ohm :) which will work great with the K550.

With the T-HD, for best sound quality, it's best to plug the external headphone amplifier into the T-HD's RCA outputs.

Thank you so much!

Is it worth getting the PYST RCA Cables?
