Hi, Jason, sounds like a grand plan. I was just listening to the Marantz today in town and it sounded really good. If you can afford it the Icon Audio HP8 MK II pure valve headphone amp would be worth consideration or audition. £449 Mind you that's a pretty amazing deal for the Chord
Well the Marantz has what I believe is a good headphine output.
The headphone amplifier would, if I changed the X-Can, and would be sitting between the DAC and Headphones when listening to itunes or spotifiy.....and I am not sure if I want to change the Headphone Amp yet....I might just go for a rebuild and change of valves in the X-Can.
