In Reply to: RE: Need help computing power ratings for headphone circuit... posted by soulbrass on June 07, 2017 at 06:27:03
Yes, the review does imply that...but other than a mention of "overkill power rating", there is no hint of what the headphone output actually is at different resistances. Also, there are no planar-magnetic or electrostatic headphones among the test cans which can present different challenges to a driving amp than dynamic driver headphones.
I received my answer elsewhere...given the information supplied in the published specs and the review, it is not possible to calculate headphone power output (need more info). Thanks.
Electrostatic cans will need a High Voltage or polarizing voltage supply - which requires a different connection.
Given that the unit can drive speakers and headphones, I would think that the 'challenge' of planar cans would not be a great challenge-
