RE: Who buys an expensive headphone amp with NO analog inputs?

I have to agree ! I still can't get over Ayre not putting Analog inputs on their Codec headphone amp . I guess some makers are not interested in selling to those who already have an external DAC they're quite happy with.

I always wonder which part of the "Damp"(headphone amp / DAC) was the afterthought ! On a more positive note I recently rediscovered how well my McCormack Micro Integrated Line Drive works for me as a headphone amp. It just gets out of the way of anything my Metrum Hex DAC is feeding it . It was a nice surprise to find out that I could simply move two small jumpers internally so that I'd have a little more volume "wiggle" with the high sensitivity / low impedance headphones I'm using.

Yup, I don't need no "stinking" confused identity amplification for my "cans"
