SO this is your professional opinion? -What I mean is I don't want to relay this info to other people and they blow the inputs on their amps/Receviers. I actually thought it wouldn't do anything.
So one should be able to put the card to 100% and not worry about hurting the gear right? -most won;t becasue you may get distortion from the card...maybe
thx for your advice BTW...

It's a professional opinion The only damage could be if they allow full on the dial, they will smoke their tweeters and possibly woofers too.

I asked a few people but seem to get unclear answers I know "normal" line leve is around 2V BUT does supplying more damage the inputs or just drive them harder? Another pseron just said the amp will just amplify what is at the input..I don't know this is why I am asking. Thx for nay help you can give me guys.
I would imagine the 5v would be a peak voltage....

Maximum output voltage has very little to do with the output voltage that the device will deliver under normal operating conditions.

I have designed preamps that can deliver 50 volts RMS before they clip. Under normal operating conditions, these preamps will deliver a couple of volts. The difference between the normal operating level and maximum output level is called HEADROOM.

I understand about headroom BUT I was thinking that with 5Vrms would drive the signal through the roof and cause clipping. What would be the ~normal amount of signal a recevier could handle?
So basically I should be able to driver this card with %100 signal and I won't cause disortion and won't hurt the unit at all?-the recevier or amp?
-do you have a ~voltage level a receiver sould handle on it's inputs befoer damage would occur?
-I really appreciate your help on this I have been looking around for info for along time and got varying answers.
