The unit is not offering any pre-defined Audio configuration, as no built-in audio interface is offered.
By default, VirtualDJ will auto assign the default sound card of your computer to the Master Output.

Depending on the sound card you need to use, manually create the necessary Master and Headphones audio configuration. See more in Audio Setup of VirtualDJ Manual
