Sound Card Line-In

  1. Sep 12, 2006 #1
    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
    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.
