    I want to use the audio output from the sound card of a computer to trigger a relay a simple click audio file to operate a rocker relay and this will turn or off a device, what is the best way to do this? Is there a voltage present on the audio output? Thanks any help much appreciated.

    At the first click there will be a short bit of audio.
    This could be amplified and used to trigger a VOX circuit. If you do this, you will most likely have to put enough capacitance after your diode to get a bit of time delay.

    Is there a particular reason you want to use the sound card output? How about the RS-232C DTR LINE, which is meant for such things?
