HPGE on soundcard spectroscopy

Hi,

Currently i'm seriously thinking to buy a used HPGE (High Purity Germanium Detectors). A trusted source offers me a detector with devar for just 1.8k$ - working of course.

I wonder if it would be possible to hook up the HPGE to a normal soundcard spectrometer to save cost on a professional one.

Any ideas if its possible, what the output signal looks like, or if anyone has done this before?

Regards
Jonathan
