    I know that this is a curious question, but one I just think I need to ask, as I see this might be a great way to integrate headphones into a current system. If you have a preamp with two preouts for example, one can go to the speaker amp and one to the headphone amp and you still have one...

    Fiio E12....What might be a good deal.....

    Just browsing B&H and saw this deal:   http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/968290-REG/fiio_e12_mont_blanc_pro.html   I am sorely tempted as I think this is a great price and the deal ends today.....   Hope this is not considered soliciting, as I have no affiliation with B&H
