    Is it possible to connect my pc (thru the audio card) to my home stereo (audio-in?) so I can listen to my mp3 collection thru my stereo speakers?

    I know this must be doable. But the audio card has only one hole for audio out while the stereo seems to need two/four inputs.

    Any and all help is appreciated.

    Your local Radioshack should have the cable adaptor you need.

    The jack on the audio card has three wires, left, right, and ground. It gets split into two RCA style phono plugs for connection to the stereo system, and RS does indeed have the cables. :)
