I hope I am asking this in the right section, it's a bit of a bizarre question, so please bear with me.

I have had to move house temporarily, so my speakers are boxed to keep them safe, plus I don't have the facilities to set them up (smaller house, so no room). I still want to listen to my music/films/SkyTV through headphones though. So is it wise/safe, to set up my SR7005 with no speakers connected, and just headphones plugged in? I know that having headphones plugged in stops all output to the speakers, but I don't know if that is sufficient to prevent any kind of damage occuring.

This might seem like a stupid/obvious question, but in my mind, better to ask and look stupid, than blindly risk a £1200 amplifier through ignorance.

I appreciate any help, even if it involves calling me a numpty, or similar.
