If I have the Miyo hooked up to my computer via USB and send my mixer's line output to the Miyo's line input, *and* don't send anything to it from my computer, can I record to my computer via the USB connection and monitor the line input recording via the headphone amplifier? I want to use it for listening to my game console audio while recording it. Even 5ms latency is undesirable because it will very slightly desync the video and audio (consoles I use run at 60FPS or about 16ms/frame, so having an audio delay of 1/3 a frame could throw off some tricks that require frame-perfect input).

I'm not sure if it processes input for recording.
Could always use a purpose built recording DAC with direct monitor capabilities. I just switched to this inexpensive model as I needed a spare mic pre-amp after last busted a capacitor.

My mixer already has a phone out that I can use to monitor, but the impedance is 60 ohms (blegh). I was hoping I could monitor with the Miyo instead but it itself has an output impedance of 15 ohms! I'll probably either buy high impedance headphones to use with my mixer headphone out, or an o2 and connect it to my mixer control room outs.
Really annoying how audio interfaces never seem to have sub 1 ohm impedance phone jacks. It's 2018

If NO ONE is doing it that gives you a great opportunity to design and manufacture that device yourself for other like minded individuals. Think of it as a unique business opportunity instead of a problem...

Yeah, I believe if you're existing mixer is acting as the USB audio capture, then the MIYO could be used as a headphone amp. Again, based on the product description it does not sound like the device supports DAC for audio capture. (Only for audio output.)

It does support audio capture. One side has two 3.5mm audio outs and the other side has one 3.5mm audio in. Both of these interface with the USB.

The DAC doesn't do the audio capture though, the ADC does, and I'm pretty sure you can't monitor the line in with the phone out jacks without it doing a "round trip" i.e. going to the computer and back, which takes 6ms (OK, not much at all, but approaching a human-perceptible latency).
Right now I use my mixer (which is analog only) to listen to the audio from my computer and consoles at the same time. I want to expand this to using it to record my mic input. So I will use the Miyo from one output of my mixer and listen to the game audio and computer audio from a different output. I like the idea of the mixer and audio interface being separate so that 1) my monitoring stays on the analog realm on the mixer and 2) I can upgrade two components separately.
