Hello Head-Fi!

I have recently bought a Little Dot 2++ amp from a very generous HK_Sends, and I wanted to know: is there any way to use it as a poweramp to drive a pair of full-sized speakers (ie. a pair of Missions), along with my Cowon D2 which would act as the DAC?

I don't know its specs, but it is very unlikely that a headphone amp will have enough power to drive full-sized speakers. Maybe extremely efficient horns or singledrivers, but likely not Missions.

If your Little Dot has a preamp out function, you can connect it to a power amp to drive your speakers. Some people have used a line out of a headphone amp to connect to a power amp. I don't know if that will work with your amp, but it is a possibility.

Another option is to buy a preamp/amp or an integrated amp that has a record out or tape loop out function. Hook your headphone amp to that and you will be able to control your sources and choose whether to play them through the headphones or speakers.
