Hi all, just have a quick question regarding impedance matching. My desktop computer speakers finally died on me (Altec Lansing 2100), and I'm not in a position to be buying replacement speakers of reasonable quality. I do however have an old pair of Monitor Audio MA-5s, which pair beautifully with the Technics V3 amp (my dad's old sound system - he gave me everything but the Technics turntable! xD)

My question is - can I connect my audio-out from my PC to an input on the V3 using a simple adapter. I can find all kinds of numbers on the impedance of the amp, but quite honestly I'm not sure what much of it means and I don't know how to compare that to my PC. The audio-out is from my motherboard (no dedicated sound card sadly) which is the Asus P8Z77-M Pro.

If somebody could help me out and let me know if the two would play nice together, that would be awesome.

Cheers!

Yes it should be fine. Powering an amp is easy compared to what a headphone out usually powers.
