After a follow-up from Merlyn on our list, I say: MISTAKE!  DON'T DO 

I thought I had this set up so it would not load up the amplifier's 
output and melt things - but Merlyn's post indicated I was wrong.  
The fact that I got away with this for a while in a home stereo (at 
low volumes) does not assure its safety.  So DON'T do it.

Sorry for the inaccuracy of the post!
