I have 3 different computers: an IBM S50, a G4 Power Mac, and a no name PC clone. I was trying to use my Sony Stereo Amplifier to amplify and output the sound from the computer line out jack.
The sound from the line out jack of the IBM and the Mac don't sound very good, it looks like they are over amplified and produce an awful noise. Interestingly, the sound from the line out jack of the PC Clone sounds perfectly through the same Sony amplifier. Both the PC Clone and the IBM are running Windows XP.
I wonder if the 'line out' are different for different computers. How do I make them work correctly on the amplifier?
