So, even after reading this: http://www.head-fi.org/a/headphone-impedance , I'm still having a hard time understanding what headphone out level is supposed to mean. I have this old DAT player that has a maximum output level of 30 mW for each channel, and it says 32 ohms output. Here is the link for the specs: http://www.datrecorders.co.uk/sv3800.php
But the link says that matching impedance should be 8-600 ohms. I thought that the 1/8 rule means that since there is a 32 ohm output, the lowest ohm headphone I can use is 256 (32 x 8=256) Am I wrong? Does the maximum output level mean that it always runs 30 mW, or it runs differently with different headphones? Sorry for the noobish questions, I'm just really confused.
