Okay i want to hook my computer up to my stero but the inputs on my stero are RCA only, so would the output from a soundcard work with that if i could find/make a converter? And tips or ideas are appreciated

-thanks

the shack has adapters that you are looking for I would go to your local radio shack adn tell them what you need and they will point you right to it. it looks like a earphone jack on one end and rca cables on the other! look at your computer speakers sometimes you already have one and can steal it from the computer speakers! if not go to the shack!

Thanks! So the output from the soundcard should be fine? I have no idea voltage - whatever wise....

My speaker amp is hooked up exactly as that as well. The line-out on the soundcard is a 3 conductor phono plug. You need an adapter that has a male phono plug on one end (this will plug into soundcard) and two RCA female connections on the other. The two RCA female connections are for stereo left & right. You'll need to make sure that the adapter you buy is for stereo, some of the adapters that the shack has are Y-splitters.

BTW - as long as you use the line-out on your soundcard, you'll have the correct impedence levels.
