Main Question or Discussion Point

I have been reading up using the Line-in on my computers sound card and the pogram XOSCOPE to be able to do some various measurement/analyzing
But before I attempt to actually plug anything together i want to make sure I don't wreck my soundcard
I have found that some soundcards have the line-in listed at a voltage of 1.737 (peak) is this the standard for soundcards?
has anyone here have any experiences with this setup
successes/failures?
Thanks for any advice!

Usually 2V peak-to-peak isn't a problem. It's almost assuredly going through an input transformer first anyway. It's hard to wreck it.
