Audio Outputs - what are System Output and Built-in Output (unnamed)?

Hi - I’m new to Roon. I have set up the Core on my iMac and have the app running on my Pixel 3a phone, all good so far, playing music nicely through the phone (for now!)

My question is: the Audio settings are showing three Output options; my Pixel 3a, System Output, and Built-in Output which it is allowing me to give a name to, currently showing Unnamed - the latter two are under the ‘connected to core’ heading.

Can anyone advise what these two are for - presumably the System Output will play through the iMac speakers.

Thanks for reading!
