Hi. I've always wanted one of the vintage Sony PCDP that everyone raves about. However, I never wanted to buy used. Now, at ALO, I have an opportunity to buy a new one, fresh in the box.

Can one of these SonyD25s power a large headphone, like the 650? Why does the Sony not come with the rechargable battery pack that was originally included? Is there a warranty with the Sony D25?

I haven't personally tried the 650 straight out of the the D-25/25s headphone out, but have read somewhere here in these forums that it can drive hard to drive cans decently. Harder to drive full size cans like the 650 would sound better if it was driven via D-25/25s lineout hooked up to a portable amp. The D-25s that was originally available thru Silicon Salvage years ago, never came with a ac adapter or rechargeable battery.
