After extensive searching, I haven't found a definitive answer. I have an Apogee Duet and recently bought a Schiit Asgard headphone amp to power a pair of HD600's (arriving this week).
Can I connect the Asgard to the Duet using the Duet's headphone output (and a stereo TRS>RCAx2 cable)? And if so, will the sound be any different than if I were to connect the Asgard to the Duet's main line-outs?
I'm asking this because I already have powered monitors running off the Duet's main line-outs and therefore can't use those for the Asgard but I'm worried that there is sound degradation by running out of the Duet's headphone out (be it an issue with double amping, for example, or if the headphone out runs off different converters than the main outs (guessing)).
Thanks in advance!
