Question Opinions on the headphone amp in the SB classic?


Well-known Member
I have just bought some good headphones from the classifieds. Philips Fidelio X1 rated at 30 Ohm. The plan is to connect them to the headphone out in the squeezebox classic. Anyone has experience on doing that? Is the headphone amp inside the squeezebox decent?

IIRC the headphone amp was always reckoned to be a weak point. No direct experience though.

A headphone DAC would probably be a decent upgrade. But try it yourself first. One man's meat & all that...
