Hi there,

Potentially stupid question, but I haven't seen this question explicitly answered anywhere for any of presonus' audio interfaces.
Is it safe to plug a TS connector instead of a TRS to the Impedance Balanced Line Outputs of the Quantum 2626, making an unbalanced connection to an input.

I am asking for a specific scenario, in which a headphone amp has an input for a Stereo Unbalanced TRS connector, and I would need to connect that to a pair of Line Outputs acting as a stereo out, using a Y cable, 2 TS to single TRS. I have read for StudioLive mixers, that because their line outputs are Impedance Balanced, that the output safely detects whether you are plugging a balanced or unbalanced connection, and adjusts accordingly.

Is this also true for the Quantum 2626?
