I was wondering, how about I get myself a retro amp like Yamaha or Denon or something for a few bucks from a garage sale and use them to drive my headphones? these retro amps weight a ton and should have pre amp / dac and everything built into them, right? So I can just take a 3.5mm to RCA adapter from my computers sound card and connect them to the back of the amp which should then be able to drive my headphones and maybe even sound better then what I get with my sound card or most ebay small amps? and on top of it all I get to control the volume and all other stuff on it too. What do you guys think? can these amps drive headphones? modern day headphones? Will it work?
