Line OUT for headphones use?

Hi all,

Can you connect headphones to LINE OUT's ... and get a decent signal?

If not, can you connect headphone amps to LINE OUT's ?

Sorry for the rather lame question, just double checking before I fry something.

Cheers,
Jls.

A line-level signal won't drive headphones. It needs to be amplified. So yeah, go from your Line Outs to a headphone amp and you should be all set.
