I've got a Gilmore Lite being shipped to me as we speak and my only quality pair of headphones is an old pair of K240DF's rated at 600 ohms. I don't really understand any of the technical jargon, so would this amp be able to power these cans reasonably?

Specs of K240DF's:

Type semi-open, circumaural dynamic headphones
Sensitivity 88 dB SPL/mW
Frequency range 15 to 20,000 Hz
Rated impedance 600 ohms
THD <0.25%
Max. input power 200 mW
Cable single cable, approx. 3 m (10 ft.)
Connector gold plated stereo mini jack
Adapter stereo gold plated mini to 1/4" adapter jack
Net weight (without cable) 240 g (8.5 oz)
Special features Diffuse-field equalized, designed strictly to IRT (German Institute of Radio Technology) standards

Specs of g-lite:

Device Type Solid State (JFET, Bi-Polar Transistors)
Class of Operation Class A
Frequency Response 5Hz-50KHz +/-0.1dB
Signal-to-Noise Ratio >100dB
Total Harmonic Distortion <0.006%
Stereo Crosstalk >85dB @ 1KHz
Gain 6x / 15dB
Input Impedance 50K ohms
Input Sensitivity 200mV to 3.0Vrms
Output Impedance less than 1 ohm
Output Voltage 15 Volts peak-to-peak
Output Power 1 Watt
Inputs/Outputs 1 RCA input and loop out, 1 1/4" headphone out
Operating Voltage 100-120VAC
Power Consumption 7.5 Watts
Chassis Dimensions 5.75 (L) x 4.5 (W) x 1.2 (H) inches
Weight 3lb / 1.35kg

If not I think I'll have to order some K601's from Todd
