Driving headphones with Cyrus III amp

I am looking for an uncomplicated way of driving headphones on my home hi-fi setup. I have a Mission Cyrus III amp, which does not have a headphone socket. I am able to run them by a rather convoluted method by connecting the phones to my Philips CD recorder and setting it to record standby then use the recording level to control the volume. I presume the answer is to buy a headphone amp and coinnect it to the tape output on the Cyrus III. If so, can anybody recommend a good combination of phones and amp for listening primarily to jazz? My sources are vinyl and CD. I don't need portability.

I currently have a pair of Sennheiser HD205's. Somebody elsewhere accurately described these as instruments of torture. The clamping effect becomes very uncomfortable in very short time.

Grateful for any help I can get in sorting out this issue.

I would suggest that you post this in the "Headphones" section where either Dalethorn or Quadpatch would be best placed to help.
