    just a cd player? Onkyo and Yamaha have some bookshelf receivers. I have the Onkyo in my room, it's a pretty cool unit. Heres a pic for size idea.

    Mine came with different speakers that collect dust. Has a sub out so you could really set up a nice little nighttime rig along with your phones. I have to micro Athenas hooked up to mine at each corner of my bed posts. Squeezebox for night music and it fits nicely on my nightstand. Yamaha has one too, slightly more expensive.

    How much you want to spend? There are dozens of amazing CD players designed for cramped radio and TV broadcsat booths from Denon, Panasonic and Tascam, but they aren't cheap:

    Personally? I would get a portable CD Player.

    Also I have been using a portable but cant imagine I would not do better with my HD650's with a better jack then a mini plug.

    With a headphone amp, any CD player would be pretty darn great. If you want a CD player with a build-in headphone jack & volume control, you may have to go with a professional model.

    Flint, I think you are missing what i am saying. My headphone amp has left and right line ins and I have been using the mini line out from a compact player with a splitter into the amp. I think there would be better seperation from a "real" component cd player with left and right audio outs. That is why I am looking for one, but a fuul size player will not fit on the nightstand under the amp.

    Ah... There really isn't any better separation with two RCA connections than with one 1/8" TRS (Stereo) plug. It may seem logical that there would be better seapration, but the signals being delivered as low voltage enough that the amount of crosstalk is higher in the electronic components (like your headphone amp) than in the wire and connections.

    My 10 year old Yamaha changer has a variable volume for headphones, but since it is a full sized component, that won't help him any.

    Im gonna take your advise here and save some cash. To be honest my Panny compact player really does sound great with this rig, I guess "upgraditis" was calling me out.

    SSSSoooooo.........I will spend the cash on sumthin for my HD instead! LOL!!!!
