Long time lurker in need of some advice. I'm not totally up on components and while I appreciate good sound I'd say I'm more on an audiophile wanna be.
My main stereo receiver is Yamaha RS700. I'm buying a set of AKG Q701 or Grade SR325 headphones.
My 3 audio components are connected directly to the RS700 and are Turntable, CD player and ZuneHD (connected through dock).
I've read that while this setup should be fine for playing through speakers (PSB Imagine) it may not be the best way to listen to headphones that need an amp to drive them. Could someone confirm if I should connect through an amp, a reasonably priced option and anything that would improve my setup.
Thanks a lot.
