headphone output impedance

A phone call to Parasound may get you an answer. I just looked up the output impedance on the DACMagic+ - 50 ohms. Again, not ideal for the Grado's.
You might want to look into a headphone amp with a low output impedance (<3 ohms). FWIW, I am using a Objective O2 with the Grado SR60 and the Hifiman HE-400s (22 ohm) with great results. It has an output impedance of 0.54 ohms. It costs about $150 with rear RCA inputs and rear power input option (highly recommended options).

I married the perfect woman. The downside is everything that goes wrong is my fault.
