    I just realized I have never heard it mentioned and I can't tell for sure from the photos. Anyone know?

    I just checked my hi-res pics from CES and no, it doesn't.

    No! I too wish it had one but only if it also had Dolby Headphone. I found, that for CD/SACD playback via headphone, I much preferred the music when my headphones were plugged directly into the headphone jack on the source unit. Unfortunately, if your source doesn't have a headphone output, you may be forced to buying and using something like the Sennheiser DSP-360 and running it off of the 950s second zone output. I bought one of these units for my notebook computer and it cost me less than $30. Check out Sennheiser or Ubid(who always seems to be selling them) for more info.

    I have a set of Sennhiesser HD600 phones. I do eventually want to get a quality headphone amp for them. But I was hoping I could put that off a while. If the 950 doesn't have a headphone jack I won't be able to if I want to enjoy my HD600 phones. I'll have to make sure I have that several $100 CDN extra it will take to get a quality headphone amp.
    I was thinking more along the lines of ordering one of these. Either the Corda or the Porta Corda.

    I don't think I'm gonna have a lot of options besides the Porta Corda. I want to keep the cost under $300 CDN, so $180 USD or so is as high as I want to go. $300 USD is about what I payed for my 15" Tempest and a 250 watt at 4 ohm plate amp. So $300 plus for a headphone amps just erks me right now.

    I'll have to do some more research before I make my final decision.
