Well you aren;t completely lost here. You can use a passive pre-amp like eemotiva's control freak or the schiit Sys to turn down the volume.
Transport: Sony BDP 5100 Blu ray player spdif PC using Musiland Digital Times WASAPI via BNC connection - DAC: DC-1->XLR XPA-1 , RCA->Basx A-100 CD: Denon DCD 600 PCM 61 DAC. RCA Amp: XPA-1 gen 2 using XLR connections. Speakers: Axiom Audio m80 V3, Sennheisser HD700 headphones. two pairs 12 guage each bi-wire speaker cables per monoblock Headphone amp: Basx A-100 (INCREDIBLE VALUE!!)
Other equipment: Asus Xonar essence ST Behringer UCA 202 Sennheiser HD600
Thank you everyone for all your help. Looks like I'm heading towards the 3 mini amps because I like the volume control feature. Now I just have to prepare for the look on the wife's face when they get delivered!!!
