I have some low impedance headphones (Denon 7100s) can I plug them directly into 3.5MM output, or do I have to have an amp?
Well, you could, but then you'd have to use software volume control, and if your headphones like lots of current, it might not do the trick.
Minimum connected impedance to ODAC is 5k, meaning you must connect ODAC to an amplifier. Connecting headphones directly to ODAC will result in performance below rated specifications. You really need to use an amp to achieve optimal results.
