Cd player with a good hi-fi headphone output


Guys.

I have just invested in a pair of V-Moda LP2 and Bose Quiet Comfort 15 which are my first proper phones.

I have been doing lots of research regarding headphone amplifiers and this got me thinking. Do any audio manufacturers actually make a decent CD player that has a good headphone output?

I would rather spend money on a CD player with a good headphone output that I can at least integrate into my system rather than an amp which is obviously pretty limited in its uses.

If such a player does exist what would work well with the V-Moda and Bose. In addition, what cd player and or headphones would you consider and why?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

In addition, what would be a good classic rack CD player with a good high quality direct headphone output (good DAC etc.)? One that could maybe make a headphone amplifier obsolote? I'd also like to plug both my V-moda LP2 and Bose QuietComfort 15 to it. Does that make sense?

Thank you

Your best bet is to ask on "Head-Fi.org" many expert "can" aficianodos are there. My own experience is that the headphone output circuit on a CD player, seems any afterthought and not an important feature.
I own a now disgraced but really incredible sounding dedicated OTL headphone amp by SinglePower. I have owned a couple and can tell you as a rule they are better than any other combination source.
There appears to be some preamps however like the Cary SLP-05 which have a dedicated headphone amp in it. I would imagine there are others like that on preamps, but never seen it on a CDP.
eastern electric mini-max.Headphone in this thing is fantastic.
If you are looking for used and cheap, I enjoyed my Sony ES cdp's headphone jack...
