Apologies for bumping an old thread but my question is the same and this one doesn't quite seem to have been answered.
I managed to fry the headphone output* on my iRiver iHP-120 but the line out is still working. Is there any problem with connecting headphones to the line out? Is it likely to damage anything?
I tried it tentatively, initially with the volume turned down before putting it up to a normal level and it sounded fine - no distortion.
*I'll post a new thread for this.
