Re: Add line-out feature/jack allowing connection to amp's line in

I thought this was going to be simple, but, evidently not.  Your replies come closest to what I would like to do.  I simply want to connect my Fuze to my 8 year old AV Receiver to take advantage of my AV speaker set up.  No USB connection on the receiver so that is out.  Can I simply connect a cable from the headphone output on the Fuze to the appropriate jack on the receiver?  What cable?  What jack on receiver? I am concrened that the variable line output on the Fuze will not be handled correctly or that I moght cook the Fuze.  Thanks.

Refer to Conversion Box's post earlier in this thread. You've probably got an AUX IN jack on your receiver (most do). Plug into that.

 

Or get a Sansa Base Station. I have one; it works great! It's even got a remote control for it. With the Fuze, and it's offset connector port on the bottom though, you will need to plug it in sans (without) any adaptors since it is made for the 'E' & 'C' series. Other that this minor adjustment, it will work perfectly with the Fuze. Smiley Happy

Radio shack sells a 3.5mm male to 2 male RCA cable that works great.  I'm listening to my Fuze through an integrated amp right now at work.  There's no chance of cooking the Fuze unless you hooked the RCA up to an output from a source or tape loopback on your receiver.  Just hook it up to your AUX or CD inputs, or whatever spare you have, and enjoy.

 

I run the volume on the Fuze at 100%, as the input impedance of the inputs on your receiver or integrated amp, in my case, is relatively very high, the actual power output is low.

 

You can also use the same type cord for hooking up a computer or laptop headphone out to your receiver.

DAPs: Fuze 8GB+16GB for office, Meizu miniPlayer 4GB for the car, Clip 8GB for walking around.
Headphones:: Sleek Audio SA-6 (treble ++), Koss KSC75 modded, Grado SR-80i, Grado-225.

This^^ is what I did. Now I leave the computer hooked up to the stereo with the cable, because all my music is on the computer.
