can i feed a signal from a powe amp line out jacks rated at -10dbv at 600 ohms impedance into my line in jack on my computer to record using audacity or other software. Is this signal ok for the lin-in jack? Thanks

My guess would be yes, the the impedance is odd to me.

Normally a sound card will have some technical details about the values for load and input so you need to see that. Most power amps would have only a high out but some may have a monitor or line.

I will warn you that a normal sound card may not provide the real time you may want. There could be quite a delay if you need to both play and record. i use a line 6 product and it uses up a lot of processing time on a newish system in low latency.

Is the 600 ohm output balanced? You may need a resistor network to properly load the output and match the impedance.
