Is it possible/recommended to daisy chain headphone amps?

I don't see any benefit in doing that, and only potential problems.

What would the potential problems be? Is what I'm saying the same as amp stacking?

You can connect two or more amps..... Source to amps line in and amps line out to the other amps line in... connect as many as you want in this way. It will NOT damage your amps at all and you can listen to the same source signal on all of the amps at the same time. Ideal if you've got more than one pair of headphones.

So it won't damage my amps? I was thinking the same thing...because isn't that essentially the same as running an amp through the headphone out because that is technically a low powered amp, correct?

Of course it won't damage your amps, that's what it's there for "line out"
