DesktopKonnekt 6: Headphone output DACs quality compared to main output DACs

Question

 Is the quality of the D/A converters for the phones output the same as the converters used for the main output?

Answer

The DACs are different types,  but when considering the full circuit including the front-end circuit,  the performances are extremely close to being identical. The difference between the DACs may be insignificant compared to the difference in the front-end design - line out versus headphone amp, which are using different amplifier chips.
