I don't think that the source matters all that much, as long as you can get a fixed level signal from your integrated. One factor in choosing a hp amp is the phones you pairing it with. Lots of very good info on that at head-fi.org. I've been very happy my most recent one, by Woo Audio. Headphones are a very personal choice in terms of sound flaovor and comfort. I would recommend getting to a head-fi meet or an audio show where you can try out quite a few different options. I also think Cable Co. has a library of phones to try out.
