From what I gathered, headphone amplifiers deliver power...

    Will my Xonar DGX be able to drive 250ohm headphones?

    Hey guys, I currently have an Asus Xonar DGX sound card on my desktop PC. I'm thinking of getting the Beyerdynamic DT880s, but I've heard that the 250ohm version sounds much better than the 32 ohm version when amped. Will my sound card be able to handle the 250ohm version or should I just go for...
