Printing using priPrinter is a two part process. First you print to priPrinter, then you print from priPrinter to another print driver.

Is the quality of the final printed job diminished in any way because it has to go through two drivers instead of just one?

Thank you again for your great help!

Image quality can be dropped a bit in case if JPEG compression is used - it is just a theory. Degradation is not visible though.
However if you want to achieve same quality, just switch JPEG compression OFF. It's in printer driver.

Rest things are insignificant. For instance, images, symbols and lines can be shifted a bit. May be half of printer pixel in total. But this happens in regular printer driver and I even don't know how to measure this.

Thank you. Very helpful answer.

I can understand about the JPEGs since compressing, and then compressing again clearly loses information.

The visible results of the quality of priPrinter output look excellent!

Did I mention that my Mother's grandparents were both born in Hungary? :D
