I have a B&K AVR-307 now and will have a Denon AVR-5803 (with Dolby Headphone) soon. I wonder how the 5803 will power some Sennheiser HD 600's ? I plan on buying a pair of HD 600's this week. Any thoughts? Thing is, i don't want to drop a ton of jing on a headphone amp...probably won't use the phones as much as my speakers in my HT. I picked up a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 250-80's from Headroom last week and i think they sound restrained, muddy(with good bass). I tried out a pair of HD 600's at my local Tweeter through a B&K Ref30 and they sounded alot nicer. I'm going to return the Beyer's. I also emailed JMT in reference to possibly using one of his amp designs. Think i'll need an amp? I just don't know if they'll be a big difference in a lower cost amp and the headphone jack in a Flagship receiver such as the B&K or the Denon. I'm pretty new to headphones so, any help is appreciated. Thanks.
