Yes it's low level output. There is a common ground for all four speakers - available on Pin2. The biggest problem with the 8-pin Din connector is the Amp on signal, it's only 5v - this won't turn on most amplifiers, just use the aerial output instead. Have a look at: http://www.saabnet.com/sites/richard.bevan for more details. Carl. -- To reply, remove "dontspam_" from return address.
