    It will work, but many people find the sound to be too clean and clinical through a digital amp.

    You also know what sons are like - he may just want to crank the volume and stands a chance of blowing your speakers.

    There are some small (cig packet size) amps that are designed to work with headphones and also give surprisingly good ambience effects. I would recommend on of these (to save your ears also!) :D

    Check out the music shops.

    Cheers

    You need to get an amp for his guitar. They aren't expensive and you won't crap yourself when he turns it up with a distortion pedal added.

    I had a friend at school who regulary blew up his dads hifi amp & speakers this way.

    Get yourself down the local secondhand shop and fork out £30 for a practice amp.
