    My 15" G4 powerbook has a headphone out and there is some kind of little jack right to the left of it. Is that for speakers?

    I want to run a mini-plug from the powerbook into a desktop stereo (Tivoli Model Two) and I'm wondering if I can use that output for that purpose.

    That jack is audio in. To do that you will have to use the headphone jack.

    If it's one of the latest PowerBooks, it could be an optical digital audio output.

    like Yippy said...it's a line INput.

    The digital audio outs on the new Powerbooks share the same jacks as the analog ins and outs - you need to get a 1/8" to whatever (usually TOSLink) fiberoptic spdif cable to use them (they work great BTW :)

    To hook your PB to a stereo etc, you would use the headphone OUTput.

    yes, Audio in. Go buy a male to male headphone cord, and you can plug it into a tape deck with a headphone port. Then you can convert your stash of old 80's cassette tapes. Run them through Roxio's CD spin doctor to take out hiss, clicks and pops.

    Now you can digitize your awesome butt rock or any other cassette tapes you have lying around.
