Would this amp be a good way to drive my incoming HD6XXs? I do have a pair of speakers I need an amp for, but if it'd also replace my FiiO E07K for headphones, it'd be great.
The AD18 is primarily a speaker amplifier with a headphone jack as a bonus feature - which is probably inferior to your FiiO E07K. I recommend getting a better headphone amp to make your incoming HD6XX sing. What's your budget?
The amp drives my AKG K7xx and Fostex TR50 MRK3's pretty good. The TR 50's are extremely hard to drive by anything but work with this amp although on the high side of the plume control for really loud
The HD6XX / HD650 is harder to drive than your AKG K7XX and will sound better with a more-powerful (and higher quality) amp than the AD18.
Though for a speaker set-up on a desk where real estate is limited, the AD18 would be an excellent choice.
