Just purchased a Studio 2|6 USB for production and light recording.  For some odd reason, the only outputs I have available to choose from within Windows are the Main 1/2 and Line 1/2.  Why is this?  Am I unable to use the headphone output for Windows or system audio?  This makes zero sense to me.  My DAC-X6 that cost a fraction of the price I was using before this allowed me to do this.  Don't tell me I'm only able to use this within my DAW, and that I'll need to purchase a separate headphone amp to do this by running it off the Main 1/2 outs.  

Thanks in advance.

Headphone output only duplicate Main or Line outs. In windows sound settings choose Main 1/2.
