    Hurricane Source vs HC


    I am looking to get a Hurricane for my Bricasti M3H. The "H" version has the built in headphone amp. I emailed AQ customer service and they said I should get the HC version because it has an amplifier. A few days later I emailed Garth who said I should get the source version since "that’s a fixed current voltage amplifier output".

    Just want to get some additional opinions and perspectives.

    Thank you.

    I think Garth would know. I wouldn’t expect a headphone amplifier would draw any more current than a preamp.

    Why didn't you mention this to Garth? He should know that their service department is giving opposing advice
