I do something similar to what you're trying to do when I digitize my 
vinyl LPs.  I take output from my amp/turntable into my sound card and 
use Audacity to digitize it and write an appropriate sound file.  I also 
monitor the sound using Audacity by telling it to also route the sound 
to my speakers.  The point of all of this is that I think you need a 
piece of software (Audacity is probably overkill) to receive the input 
and play it back via the output.  You don't mention any "playback" software.
