    well, after realizing that my Onkyo 595's headphone jack is utter crap, i need a good headphone amp to power my Sennheiser HD580s and wireless RS60's. besides, i need a good Christmas project for while i'm back at home. [​IMG]
    ive talked to a veteran DIY'er and he assured me that a 'phone amp is a good and relatively easy way to start a DIY hobby. here's where you guys come in: i've never done anything like this before! i know i can bulid a decent 'phone amp for about $30 is Rat Shack parts, which beats paying $150-$200 for a new amp. so, can someone please outline to me how i would go about building a simple headphone amp with room for two sets of headphones? i'm guessing the input will be off my receiver's "Tape Out" RCA's, but i really have no clue as to what exactly to buy and how to assemble it. any and all help is much appreciated!! TIA

    If you have never done anything like this before, how about a kit? -generally they do a good job and costs aren't that much more than parts
    www.mcmelectronics.com have a lot and also sells piece parts too
    Rat shack parts are so-so if they have them
