This is a duplicate of your previous question. – hotei Dec 28 '10 at 14:08

Doesn't you amplifier has a line-out or headphone output?

If you connect the 150W to the line-in on your sound card, you will probably burn it instantaneously. The input for sound is usually very low.

no yaaar....dere isn't any headfone output for my amplifier.. – Vaisakh Sep 18 '10 at 16:34

It can be done. You could put enough resistance in the circuit to get your amp's signal down to something your sound card won't find offensive. BUT - then you've got to find some way to dissipate a LOT of heat coming from that in-line resistance. What you probably want to do instead is split the input to your amp and send that low voltage signal to your PC.
