I have bm800 condenser microphone which produces really low volume because it needs to be connected to a phantom power, I don't have a phantom power but I have and old Pioneer SA-600 amplifier.

How do I connect my condenser to this amplifier then to my PC for better recording?

You need to have an amplifier for the mic before the Pioneer amplifier. Ie - you can use the PC for this since most mainboards/computers does have a mic-in connector.

That is, you connect like this: Mic --> PC --> Amplifier.

Mic to PC using using motherboard Mic input. Then How do I connect the PC to the Amplifier? if the mic in is already used by the mic

You need a RCA to 3.5mm stereo jack cable (male plug in both ends)
I'm confused because I cannot connect the rca to my pc but on the amplifier I can. So I think what I need to do is connect the mic directly to the amplifier which has a mic input. then use the RCA to be able to connect the amplifier to the pc. Correct me if I'm wrong
