Motherboard is a Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4.


Line out to line in:

Output set at "50", input at "100", assumed to be nominal levels(?).

Headphone out at max output, unloaded, to line in. (Input reduced to "25"):

I can do some loaded test of the headphone pre-amp if anyone's interested. I have Ety HF5, Beyer DT250-80, Senn PX-100, Koss KTXPro1, Senn HD201 and Creative EP-630 at hand. I assume I need a 3,5 mm Y splitter with one male and one female connector at the split ends?

Note that while output is 24-bit capable input is 16-bit(oddly, both are 24-bit according to datasheet).

Yeah, high output impedance.

For fun here's the most ambitious looking on-board I've seen:

Yeah, high output impedance.

According to the spec sheet the amplified output impedance for ALC889 is 2Ohms. Line out is 200Ohms.

The datasheet also recommends (in the "Application Circuits" section) 75 Ω serial resistors (and also 100 uF capacitors) on the headphone output, so an implementation that follows the reference design would have an output impedance of 77 Ω.
