With Sennheiserâs HDVD 800, sound is perfect. The HDVD 800 is able to connect with digital sources and is equipped with a high-quality Burr-Brown digital/analog converter (DAC) that converts digital audio data into analog signals with a resolution of 24 bits and a sampling rate of up to 192 kHz. This enables the HDVD 800 to transmit the entire frequency spectrum of high-end audio sources without any loss of frequencies.
In addition to the symmetrical inputs, the HDVD 800 also has an asymmetrical input socket; incoming signals are symmetrized before further processing takes place. Digital sources can be connected to the rear of the unit via an XLR (AES/EBU) input, optical and coaxial (S/PDIF) digital inputs or USB. All digital inputs accept signals up to 24 bit at 192 KHz*. Designed and manufactured in Germany, this high-end, solid-state amplifier harmonize perfectly and deliver an ultimate acoustic performance when paired with any of Sennheiserâs audiophile headphones.

The Head Phone Receiver that you should take a second look at

Head Phone experience with this receiver is unmattached, and once you have used the system you may agree too.
Pros: Best Audio Reception ever, and you have multiple inputs for both sources of sounds. Crutchfield technical support went beyond and recommend the Arcam Doc for the outpit of the SPDIF to the input of the receiver, so I can listen to my iphone/ipod in digital via the receiver using the HD headphones.
