Headphone and line out amp - dual output needed

more_vert
Multiple outputs at the same time needed. I am after a headphone amp (hifiman 4xx and HD6XX) PLUS a line out to drive a subwoofer amp for tactile transducers. I need the headphone amp to drive the headphones and then AT THE SAME TIME produce a line out signal to go to the subwoofer plate amplifier driving the Bass shakers. Does this thing exist?

If I were going to try what I think you want, I'd use the front/speaker out - to a headphone amp and the center/sub out to the sub when using a 5.1 pc/motherboard sound card. Choosing/using the headphone out on the card might disable the sub out. Fairly certain the front/speaker out isn't meant to power stuff directly so that's why you'd need an amp. If your sub takes normal stereo input (not sure if that exists), many headphone amps have pre-amp rca outputs or you can buy rca/trs splitters for cheap.

Well I have my doubts that this is what you need beyond what a normal sound card does other than providing a 50 cent stereo trs splitter, but I don't know the specifics of your situation. Granted taking the sound card out of the computer case is usually a cleaner sound.
