Default How to use a Gainclone with headphones.

Hi!

I remember reading somewhere (I think 6 moons) about a reviewer using an Audiosector Gainclone with headphones, and being pretty chuffed with the quality.

I have the premium Audiosector Gainclone (LM3875), and my headphones are a pair of 64 ohm Sennheiser HD570s.

What would I need to do to run the amp into these headphones, WITHOUT having to change anything internally i.e. so I can still use the Gainclone as an amp?

Many thanks.

- John

Basically, you don't need to change anything. The forum discussion is here: LM3875 as a headphone amp (another try)

Thanks Peter - yes I saw both those pages, but neither seemed to state explicitly how to use phones with the amp.

Do I rig up some kind of adapter, so both - speaker terminals are connected to the (single) headphone ground wire, and the left and right speaker outputs to the same in the phones?

Yes, exactly. That's how I was using my headphones.
