    I've just gotten the Aego-M 2.1 speaker system, and when i connect the 3.5mm jack into the line in socket on my iMac, it doesn't seem to recognise it, and just continues to play sound thru the internal speakers.

    But if I connect the 3.5mm jack into the headphone socket on the iMac, the speakers work - but i'm pretty sure it's not supposed to work this way right?

    Anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong - surely the line-in should work?

    Thanks

    The line in is for connecting external audio sources.

    The headphone port is the correct jack for audio out.
