Best headphone amp for sony headphone SA5000

Hi after doing some researching for headphone, I am going to buy the Sony SA5000 because of the comfort and sound quality (not the AKG 701 which I am selling it on ebay because of the stupid designed headband which hurt my head). However, I don't know which headphone amp is the best suitable one for the phone to produce the best sound quality. Right now I think I can spend around 700$ for the amp(if it also has the DAC option, it will be very nice). Plz recommend me one? Thank a lot

Wires connect stereo

Assuming that your TV has a headphone socket, the easiest way is to connect a lead from the headphone socket on your TV to a spare line (or auxiliary) input on the Sony amp. You will need a 3.5mm stereo plug to twin RCA plug cable, long enough to reach both pieces of equipment. Most electrical stores should have a suitable cable available at modest cost :o)

Can I plug an Ipod directly in to this amp?

You can plug the I-Pod into the amp by using one of these cables. It fits into the headphone socket of the I-Pod and the two RCA's go into an aux imput (perhaps the front one?).

Your first problem is buying a sony. Although their home audio is amazing their car audio needs a major overhaul. It sounds like you might have a bad capcitor on the board. If it was me i would just go purchase a real amp instead of sony.... sorry to burst your bubble but i know of an instance where all but 5 amps of sonys were bad on a pallet sent to a best buy... they are just cheaply thrown together.

If you can't hear any sound from the headphone output, and by sound I mean a hum with the volume turned up, then the amp has either got a faulty internal power supply or the main amp has failed. Try looking inside to see if any fuse has blown. Also look around to see if you can see or smell anything has blown.

Hi there.
Check for shorted speaker wires on left channel. If not, disconnect speaker wires and check to see if headphone jack works. If left works, you may have a blown speaker. If left still doesn't work, left power amp blown.
