    Think this will cause any problems? I got a yorkville xs400t. It has a tube head.. My speakers were pissing me off today, and I just got a 1/4 inch --> 1/8 inch converted for a mic I got today. So I used my bass cord and pluged into laptop, and amp and it sounds very good ( probably because of the 70 watt tweeter ). I am just wonderin' if this might cause any harm? Or just save me 150 bucks on new computer speakers.
  2. its fine. make sure line level is matched. Treat is as a low impedance "active" input.

    That amp has tube stage in preamp.

    My amp has a cd input. Your adapter needs to convert stereo to mono. Otherwise you are only getting half. who cares?
