A1200 sound output quite high.

I plugged my recently purchased A1200 straight into an old integrated stereo system the other day and it sounds absolutely perfect. Great, no bad caps!

However, when I plugged the sound output into the line-input on my laptop (which then routes out to a nice separates system), the signal was peaking quite a bit.

Maybe I do have bad caps, or is it just that the phono outs from a 1200 are a bit on the high side normally?

@HonestFlames

you will need to turn of 20db boost on the LINE IN on the laptop.

it might also be called MIC BOOST

Thanks, but it's not that. Laptop doesn't provide that option.

I can reduce the line-in level OK on the laptop side. It moderates the volume fine, but there's still clipping going on.

I'll have to get some correct cabling or an adapter so that I can go straight from the Amiga into my amp to see if the problem is my laptop or the Amiga.

Just making sure: You're reducing the line-in volume in the recording panel, not just in the playback panel, right?

Yes and it's first time I've ever had to access the recording devices side of Win 7's audio panel. It's inexplicably hidden away a little bit more than it should be.
