You could hook up an external headphone amplifier to the NAD's headphone jack, but not something that I would do, would rather not get into double amping.

I would say it would be better to invest into a external DAC/amp and feed your source(s) into the DAC/Amp.


I just paid $300 for an Audio-GD NFB-15.32 DAC/Amp, comes with USB, optical & coaxial inputs and has a headphone amplifier along with a separate (analog) line-out feature.

Makes my DT990 Premium 600-Ohm headphones sound nice.

I would assume it would bring out the best in your current 50-Ohm HD598s.

Sorry for bringing up an old thread.

I have the same issue as stated in this thread.

PurpleAngel, are you still using the Audio-GD unit in your system?

Are you using it on an AVR with a digital out/analog out combination?
