Sansamp BDDI as a headphone amp?

    Two Q's actually:

    -Can I use my Sansamp as a portable headphone amp? (assuming I a get 1/4" mono-to-stereo adaptor plug at Radioshack)

    -Any advice for reducing hiss from the SABDDI? I'm running it in front of the input of an old Peavey Combo 300, and setting the treble or presence knobs at 12:00 or more really adds a lot of hiss - I love the tones, but wish it were quieter. It does this with both 9V batteries & an Ibanez wallwart.

    I don't know about the hiss question, but I've tried to plug a headphone to it and the sound was very weak. But I didn't know that adaptor exist...:confused:

    I don't think the output level is hot enough to drive a pair of headphones.
