    I have a cambridge A5 amp which is fantastic, the trouble is it has no headphone socket. What is the cheapest and best method of being able to connect a quality pair of quality headphones to it :confused:

    Hi...the cheapest method is to buy something like a headphone switch box,which will connect across the output terminals of your amp,and allow you to switch between the speakers,and the headphones.
    Some will disconnect the speakers while the phones are being used.....Maplins do a very cheap and simple one.

    This isn't the best option,and certainly not if you have adecent set of phones,and a headphone amp would fit that very nicely,with some being as cheap as £50,and working up from there.

    These can be driven off the pre-outs of your amp if it has them,or sometimes directly by a CD player.
    What sort of budget,and headphones did you have in mind?
