Hi everyone,

 

looking for those of you with deep understand about audio connections, impedances, voltages, cables etc...

 

What happens when you connect 2 audio outputs though a cable (coaxial)?

 

Imagine, you take a male-to-male 1/4 audio cable and connect an iPod to the headphone output of a stereo system. Both systems on, what will happen if (1) you play something on iPod; (2) you play something on you stereo; (3) you play something on both?

 

What are the chances of damaging (electrically) something in such a situation?

 

Thanks for your feedback!
