If it just for headphones, then you do not need to use the line-out RCA jacks of the preamp, you can just use the headphone jack on the front of the preamp for your headphones. You can then either go directly from the headphone-out on your laptop to the line-in on your preamp, or you can use a DAC between a laptop USB port and the preamp line-in. But again, we need to know what you are really trying to accomplish...
sorry for posting crossed questions in diferent threads, I was just eager for answers
the thing is:
I have a laptop (fujitsu siemens amilo), I have a pro-ject head box se and my headphones are the akg k501
my hi-fi is a yamaha e-100
what do I want?
I want to know how to connect the amp to my hi-fi (this is easier cos the manual explains me how: 2 rca cables one going from amp´s line out to hifi´s "tape in" and the other from amp´s line in to hifi´s "tape out")
I did it and it gave me problems but I shall try again soon
the other thing and my main doubt is how to connect the amp to my laptop considering my laptop only has a minijack output for the headphones
I want to see which is the cheapest combination that manages a fair sound
