No. When using the Line input (3,5mm jack) on the Phono Box USB V we do not recommend using the analogue RCA output to listen to the source. The RCA output is only for use with a turntable source that has been connected to the RCA phono input. The Line input is only fully supported when transferring the audio signal over USB to a computer for recording.
