[FAQ] Can I use headphones with am impedance lower than 33Ω with the Bartók?

Yes, you can. The Bartók has very low output impedance so can control low impedance headphones tightly and as the amplifier runs largely in Class A the effect on output stage power dissipation is minimal. When driving low impedance headphones, the most important factor is the maximum available current and Bartók has plenty.

The Bartók will happily drive headphones with an impedance below 33Ω, such as the Meze Empyrean and Audeze LDC-XC.
