Welcome to the Shack.

Yes, it is possible and usually very easy. I have a receiver hooked up to my computer and listen to FM over it all the time. It will be easier for us to help you if you could provide brand/model information and/or pictures of your particular set up.

It appears that this unit has RCA inputs for a CD player, right and left push speaker terminals, and a 12 volt DC power output. This means the speaker terminals are the only audio output if there is no headphone jack on the front panel. You'll need a speaker to line level converter http://www.crutchfield.com/p_543ADP...aker-level-to-Line-level-Adapter.html?tp=9070 and then a RCA to 1/8" cable http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103865 to input to your sound card on your computer. The light blue jack on your sound card should be the analog line level input. If you can, why don't you give us a front panel shot as well.

Sorry, I guess I assumed you had an integrated stereo amp with AM/FM tuner. By the looks of your pictures that appears not to be the case.

Let me see if I understand correctly,... your CD amp does have a built in FM tuner? And you want to listen to it over your PC? If so I do believe Jay's suggestion will likely be your best option.

Yes,... connect a short (or long) length of speaker wire, one pair for the left and one pair for the right, from the spring clips on the back of your amp to the Russound ADP, then connect the Y splitter RCA ends to the Russound and then plug the 1/8" connector into your soundcard.

Is it safe to keep the speaker-level to line-level adapter open.what about matching and safety of speakers and amp?

i'll buy speaker-level to line-level adapter and check it out and come back to you in 2 or 3 days time.hope this thread will not be closed.
