I have to crank the volume all the way up just to hear at a pleasing level. At that level I think distortion is being introduced and the sound doesn't sound clean and tight. I sure would like to avoid purchasing a headphone amp but if I have to, I was thinking about the Octavart 01. I should be able to s/pdif the Konnekt 8 with the Octavart 01 correct?

Any input would be greatly appreciated thanks!
