Yep - it is a very old one.. I think that 'inline' idea was correct. There are the two wires connecting the input to the 'power' input as you suggested.. i can't however get right into the system, it has a great big bloody magnet at the back - i cant see a transforner though, infact - all i can see are those wires going straight to the magnet at the back.. thats it - i'm not familiar with audio electronics, or electronics in general.

So how would i connect this thing up? I can quite easily take a line and connect it but like it said - it's very very low. I thought about getting one of this CMOY pocket amplifer - or something very simple and battery operated.. have you any suggestions?

I have the audio source figured, and i can drag a line out from it, so thats ok
