So I plan on getting some Alpha Dog headphones, and pretty much everyone has universally said I am going to want an Amp. I have an ASUS STX sound card, with a headphone amp built in. It outputs 1.2W @ 32 ohms
it has also been recommended I try them on the sound card first, and then test out headphone amps. However where I live does not have a wide selection of places to try out headphone amps. I have a receiver I pulled from my home theater sitting in my closet (Denon AVR-3803), and wanted to know the following:
If I hooked it up to my computer, and ran my headphones through that receiver, how well would it represent the experience of owning a dedicated headphone amp? Should I expect similar performance?
Thanks in advance,
