    I would like to know how do you use the line/inst switch for the Jack and XLR output...
    The "line" position seems to be powerful, but I don't want to kill my rig or P.A...
    Thank you for your help and sorry for my english

    "Line" refers to line-level output, "instrument" to instrument-level output.

    Meaning, if you are using the Sansamp as an effect box (your instrument plugged into the sansamp and that plugged into a normal input in your amp) you need to use instrument level. If
    you are plugging directly into a power amp you need to use line level.

    (If I recall correctly, the line level is 0db and the instrument level is -10db)
