output of one computer to input of another

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
As the title states, I am wanting to output any audio from the sound card of one of my computers and route the audio into my xtrememusic in my other computer. Is this possible with the xtrememusic? how would I accomplish this? The reason is that I want to share my klipsch promedias between two computers.

thanks!

line out --> mic in, then find something that will play from the mic....
I have no idea the kind of inputs/outputs available, but that is a simple system that should work...

I did this for hosting trivia online.

audio out from pc to line-in of pc 2.

but to share speakers a middle to upper end kvm would be better.

Shouldn't you be using the LINE IN, not MIC IN?

MIC in assumes a low level signal, a LINE OUT signal will be significantly stronger than it expects.

ok thanks for the replies!
One more question..I assume this means that the computer whose sound card is receiving the audio from the other computer will have to be powered on correct? So, for instance, computer 1 is sending audio to computer 2's sound card. If computer 2 is shut off then I wont be able to hear audio from computer 1?

The sound card routes everything through the OS, there isn't any passthrough on soundcards that I'm aware of. In other words yes, you'll need to be powered up and logged in to windows.

They have splitters that work perfectly well.

agreed a 10 dollar splitter would work the best and give you beter results
