Default Budget Headphone System & a question

Just received a pair of HD650's which are simply breathtaking. I'm not even using an amp - just my iMac headphone out. SOOOO MUUUUUCCCHHHH DEEEETAAAAIIIILLLLLLLL

Have a Playstation 1 on the way (the one with RCA outputs) that has a huge modding thread Playstation as CD-player

Probably this DAC High Grade 24bit/192khz DAC with fully assembled kits - eBay (item 120551270004 end time Dec-27-10 01:48:28 PST) as again its got a good following New Small DIY Gigawork Dac? . It will look after my Imac's 1.5Tb of lossless music

A Sony PS-4300 direct drive, quartz locked TT that will be getting a home brew carbon fibre arm like Nanook's but carbon tubing my latest iteration of "Nanook's 219 tonearm"..

All in a smidge over 340! that made my wife very happy

Here is the question though - does anyone know if I can use the Trends Audio T10.1 amp that I have to drive the HD650's?
If I'm not making noise, I'm making something to make noise

Yes, you can. I'll have to find the bookmark, but you just need to make a simple resistor network to provide the amp the correct load and protect the headphones from being over powered. A simple, clean way to do it is to use protoboard and a small project box to hold a panel mount 1/4" TRS jack and speaker binding posts, or just come straight out of the box with a short run of Mogami or Canare Star Quad as the wire to the amp.
