...into speaker & line-in port and play music from the computer? Would there be an infinite loop of music transmission from speaker to line-in to speaker etc.?

This will work fine unless you have the mixer set to relay the line in to the output rather than just using it as a recording source. If you did that you'd get some rather evil feedback and could potentially damage your soundcard.

Precisely what I thought.

Nope, I didn't do that to my laptop in case you were wondering.:lol:

It's one way people used to duplicate copy-protected music, as there was no way for DRM to stop it.
