M710q Tiny... Audio Line-in?

2018-08-07, 8:43 AM

Hi! 

I have a new M710q Tiny.

Is the mic jack okay to use as an audio line-in? 

If not, what do you suggest as an alternative or work around? 

Thanks!

What kind of audio are you trying to "line in" to the PC?

Hi jdacosta,
I need it to hook up a small stereo system.
I have an old stereo system with RCA plugs, (no HDMI port). Those have been adapted to a single line-in jack, which was an option on my old computer's jack panel.
I'm hoping the mic jack on my new Tiny will be adequate, or if there is another way to accomplish a pairing.

Thanks for responding ?

I spoke with one of our Engineers. He stated that the audio in is only for a Microphone or Headset on this system. I personally would just test it. I can also suggest a 3rd Party Product that I own which will absolutely do what you need. It is the "Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro 24-bit USB External Sound Card". This guarntees a good sound experience. Hope that helps.

I think I will try the sound card rather than risk damage ?
