    Hi,
    playing with a imac g4 (OS 9.2, yeah, it's a long story) to try to get some anolog stuff on CD. there's a way to switch the speaker out to line in. how do i find it?
    I'm a total newbie to macs so I need all the gory details like what to open, etc.

    also, Macs use a special sized speaker plug? I'm running desk top speakers now through the headphone jack.

    If you know that, can't you check with the source? Because I had not heard about such a feature before...

    As far as I know there are no speaker outputs on any Mac. You will find line out and headphone outputs only these need to go into an amplier of some kind. and digital s/pdiff or newer models
