It easily delivers 550 mW per channel at 33 ohms, enough for the tightest headphones. The model allows you to set the desired of 3 output current settings, and select one of 4 gain settings. This allows you to connect any high-end headphones with standard impedance from 8 to 600 ohms and fully exploit their capabilities.
