Anyone know of the quality of the Denon AVR-1601 headphone jack? I own this reciever, and although it is very nice I am not sure about the headphone jack on it (amplification wise..) I have heard about many companies putting crappy jacks on their recievers... Does Denon do this?

I have a 1601 and a just arrived Corda Head Amp. I find that the 1601 drives Senn 580s pretty damn well, but that there is an improvement with the Corda. Bass seems a bit tighter, and vocals less veiled. The improvement is subtle, but certainly noticeable. But to repeat, the 1601 does a good job on its own and IMHO the improvement with the Head Amp is not a night and day kind of thing. Hope this helps.

Regards, Nick
