Hi guys.

Im using my lg g7 to run my dt770 atm.

Also have a schiit stack soon to be for sale

Ive just ordered some audio techinca msr7b which are balanced but also only 35ohm which may not trigger the phone dac.

Im looking for a headphone amp with rca or 3.5mm input thats not too expensive £200 ish

Any recommendations

Cheers jake

Ahhh im thinking of the other zen dac thing
Yep, zen DAC has just RCA out, zen can has 4.4mm balanced input, 3.5mm unbalanced input and RCA input. That will have more than enough power for the MSR7bs, as the DAC on its own is plenty powerful enough to drive them headphones (my combo).
Edited for accuracy.

Perfect thank you.

Being thick here i presume the 3.5mm out from my phone will be converted to balanced in the can?
