Connecting my computer sound card to my audio system?

    I would like to connect my computer' sound card to my radio, to be able to listen
    to my MP3 files in an audio system (with better speakers than my computer).

    I have done this but I completely forgot how I did it.

    Can I connect the "speaker" out of my sound card to the audio RCA inputs of my
    audio system?

  2. I would connect the "line out", if there is one, but otherwise, I can think
    of no reason why not. Might want to do some impedance matching, but I
    don't know if that's necessary.

    I connected my DVD player to my soundcard's line in once. It worked fine.

    Russell Miller[] said this in sci.electronics.basics, at Sat,
    The sound card does not have a line out connector (IIRC, gotta check this), but I
    will try connecting to the speaker out. Thanks.
