Have my Node 2 connected directly to my amp via RCA. Headphone amp section on Node 2 has trouble driving my Sennheiser HD-600 phones for some reason - have to crank volume to max on many tracks and sometimes still not enough. I do have to connect these via a 1/4" to mini adapter fyi. So two questions:
1. Any way to get more volume out of headphone section? Drives other phones just fine fyi.
2. I do have a DAC/Headphone amp I could use (Benchmark Media DAC-1) - if I connect this coax, will I get output through both connections and does that in any way change the output thru RCA to my amp? Does it somehow negate the DAC section of the node on the coax connection, knowing it is now connected digitally to another DAC the way the Squeezebox Touch does?
Thanks for any info!
