Input the head unit into the computer
I have an interesting idea that I am sure someone has thought of or is doing. I have an older Eclipse ECD-413 that I just can't part with. Anyways, it is a pre-out only head unit.... and I was thinking 'Hey, why not input the headunit into the mp3puter that way I can shut it off and enjoy my mp3puter and not have to buy a new headunit with aux inputs!'
So... what is everyones experiences with doing this method? I would imagine I could map keys to a mixer control for the line-in side of the soundcard (AWE64) OR go with an external pre-amplifier from the out of the box and leave both source's cranked (IE one of the PPI models or something else).
Any insight or knowledge on this matter would be most appreciated. Wish Eclipse still made a model stereo like the good ole 413!
