This sound card has a headphone out that is amped, and your usual line outs.  If im going to hook this up to a speaker amp via 3.5mm to RCA cable's should I used the amped output or line out? (green jack)  (obviously the headphone amped out can get MUCH louder)
 
1st impressions with this card and my M50's is WOW!  Enjoying it more than the xonar STX I previously owned.

Use the Line-out (green) to the speaker amp.

Thanks purple!  I noticed the headphone amp on this card has a very slight hiss, while as my AX-497 has 0 his.    Thus, I will benefit here from using the an amped output to my ax-497.
