RCA Phono plugs
If you add the "thumb" keyword to the pic tag, the pic will display in the right hand column, with text underneath. Like this:

Re: my edit

Hi NT

Many thanks for this excellent article. I hope you are not offended by the editing but I felt I had to reduce the number of sections - I just could not see the "wood for the trees". I think the actual section on connectors makes far more sense if it is sorted by type, not popularity. Since you said little on DIN , I added some text - please check it if you agree about 2 pin DIN plug problems. Can you add some more about the inherent problems of 5 pin DIN?

Thanks

Although the info has some use, I dont see its direct relevance to the article tbh. May I suggest creating a new article for it, that perhaps addresses troubleshooting of lead & connector problems, which are a significant issue unfortunately. NT 23:16, 12 November 2007 (PST)

3.5mm or 1/8"?

Are 2.5mm and 3.5mm TRS jackplugs referred to as 1/8" and 3/32" in some countries? NT 23:16, 12 November 2007 (PST)


Order

The point of ordering things by popularity is that it minimises average reading time to find the info a user needs. Its a good plan where there is no other more important means of determining order. NT 23:18, 12 November 2007 (PST)

Phrasing

analog/digital

This article describes connection of analogue audio sources such as HI-FI, radios or TV to a computer and the different type of connectors in use. 
Note that USB audio devices connect to the computer with digital data channels. See USB turntables and Linux-specific information on USB microphones.

I'm going to change this as although its true, it is a source of confusion to many readers, who would regard CD as a digital source.

While is possible to get into explanations in the article I dont see any point, as its not really relevant. NT 23:22, 12 November 2007 (PST)
