I ordered a pair of Polk UltraFocus 8000 Active Noise Canceling Headphones. http://www.polkaudio.com/products/ultrafocus8000 I want to match a headphone amp with them, so I get optimal sound when gaming. I play games like battle field 3, etc.

I have a asrock extreme 4 motherboard. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme4/?cat=Specifications

When watching bluray I use a marantz sr7002, I assume that with work fine? It's on the otherside of the room, about 25 feet.

Thoughts?

The receiver seems to have a headphone jack on the front panel.

I am sure you will need an extension cable.

The standard jack on receivers is a 1/4-inch headphone jack, and your headphones have a smaller 2.5/3.5 mm plug, so that will require an adapter.

Wait what I'm confused, your receiver should be plenty powerful and I doubt an amp would do anything at all for those headphones.
