I have an Aurora (n) which Lynx says is basically a multichannel Hilo (which I haven’t tried yet...). As for the headphone amp, I had a Lake People G109-P and the Aurora’s hp amps are just as good imo. I’ve actually sold the G109.

I use an HD650 and I’m very picky on sound quality and fine details. I use this setup for critical listening and double checking things during mastering as well.

So if the Hilo is at least as good as the Aurora (n), I wouldn’t need an external headphone amp.
