    MIC in as LINE in

    Hey All,

    OK, so my MB only has 2 audio jacks, one lime/green and one pink

    So I've got the green for Line OUT feeding into my amps, all ok with this one, so what I want to know is can I use the following setup

    Frontend used so far is CF.. so my HQCT -e has the linelevel amp'd out L/R I want to hook this up to the pink but also use a MIC for my handsfree bluetooth phone setup currently going to the pink setup as MIC in via S/F

    Now the pink connector can be setup as either a LINE IN/OUT/MIC via the software, but can I have this set up as MIC in, have the MIC plugged in and HQCT then when I want to switch to RADIO, will the HQCT turn on the outputs and will I hear radio or will the levels be too high?

    What I'm not sure and haven't tested yet is

    [1] Is the MIC always on or turns on when the app is using it. (i.e. phone software)
    [2] How will the LINE LEVEL output affect HQCT going into a MIC setup input and does this turn off when I switch away from radio
    [3] Is there another alternative other than the obvious of buying a new MB or adding in a sound card

    Now I tried using digital audio option on the MB via a hacked connected from an old MB and used a DAC, but found it was heaps noisey (white noise) was using an optical cable so not sure why I got noise, I will need to retest this option

    Let me know your thoughts

    Cheers

    Are you using Mic Boost on the Mic in line currently? Or this might be what switching modes does. I have my HD Radio plugged in through the pink Mic in port on my board, but that is the only thing that line does, so I can set the levels and leave it.
