mtc with good headphone out

hi there

i'm looking for a transparent monitor controller.
one of the most important issues for me is the headphone output.
i do lots of work on headphones.
i assume the headphone outs on something as the central station don't
qualify as "high end".
how about the spl mtc or coleman units?

cheers

Cranesong Avocet?

Not a monitor switch per se but the headphone out of the Benchmark DAC-1 is great.

i have nice mytek converters...so all i really want is volume control and
headphone out. maybe the central station plus an external headphone amp?

Here for the gear
 

While the Central Station is quite good, especially for the money, I hated the headphone amp - as I read from many others here.

One thought was to buy a separate headphone amp. When I started searching and asking some guys I more and more drifted (again...) in the higher price range.

Instead I decided to sell the Central Station and have now an Audient Centro. The Centro is rarely mentioned here. Anyway for me it is the perfect choice.

Others on my list were the Crane Song Avocet and the Grace Design ninehundredsomething. Both beyond what I was willing to spend.
