Will it harm an HR-2 to use it with the headphone out of a PCDP?

Hi I have an HR-2 on the way and I know it was designed to amplify a pure signal. That's the way I plan to mainly use it. Nonetheless, I own a Sony D-NE420 and I would like to experiment with the HR-2 and see what happens if I hook it up to the headphone out of the 420.

I'm hoping it would sound at least as good as the 420 does, only with the HR-2 I could use the 420 with a full sized set of headphones. However, if sending the amplified signal of a Sony PCDP into the HR-2 would harm the Ray Samuels amp in any way I will not do it.

Please tell me now if this will destroy or degrade the HR-2 before I experiment with this. Also, have any members ever tried anything like this? If so, what happened?

It won't harm your HR-2 at all.

Are you going to upgrade your source SOON, though?

(Laughing) Yes, keep in mind that I intend to primarily hook up the HR-2 to a home hi fi stereo system. Ultimately, once I receive the HR-2 and find that I can use it with no problems, I think I will order an Arcam C73 and HD-650s.
