You want to listen to your headphones through your preamp or your amp?

Hi all, Thanks for the replies.
The headphone outlet is in the poweramp.
What do you mean by a 'dummy load' ? A seperate pair of speakers just connected?
I was thinking the same thing. As you mention, there is a switch which changes between the speakers & phones. So generally in other amps the load is diverted to the phones?
For the sake of expedience, try this.
A headphone jack is usually an afterthought and will often have its own separate amplifier. In looking at the owner's manual of a Cary 300 SEI, I see that unit has a switch used to connect the main amplifier to the headphone jack. How that relates to your unit, I don't know. Just be sure that the main amplifier outputs are indeed connected to the headphone jack, or a load of some kind, before using it.
