I have my turntable and tape deck connected to my receiver and would like to enjoy listening through headphones. I have Beyerdynamic 600 ohm headphones and so i need the headphone amp connected.

Afaik you only need an amp if your headphones have a high enough impedance (>50 usually). Most consumer headphones are under 50 ohm impedance, so they don’t need an amp. All an amp does is allow you to make your headphones louder. If you use something like these with no amp, you won’t break anything (I don’t think) but you won’t be able to hear anything because your PC can’t supply enough power to the headphones.

DACs are a different story, but then you can have discussions about electrical interference and all that stuff…
