Default Connecting a voice recorder to AUX


Is it possible to connect output of AUX to the input of a voice recorder?

The input was previously connected to a microphone but I want it to be connected to the amplifier system output so that I can record the music output from the amplifier system.

The input impedance of the voice recorder is 2KOhms. I am using an Olympus VN-2100PC voice recorder. I am not sure of the output impedance of the AUX.

AUX is usually in INPUT on amplifiers.
You probably want to use the connector marked "TAPE REC", and you MAY need to add a series resistor or two, particularly since the voice recorder is likely mono, and you need to blend the two stereo outputs of the amplifier.
A pair of resistors of 20k to 50k - one from each of L (hot) and R (hot) and common connected to the MIC (hot), ought to work.
