    It should say right on the schematic "VCC", "GND", etc. I don't know why it doesn't. I can't make out anything from that.

    1 = GND
    2 = +Left
    3 = (not shown) left jack ground
    4 = right jack ground
    5 = +Right

    3 & 4 just ground the input jacks when you aren't using them so that the equipment won't hum.

    edit: There are no VCC and GND. It's a stereo input jack, not an IC chip.

    Looks like a diagram of a RTS (Ring-Tip-Sleeve) input jack. This type of connector is most often used for the following:

    1. If it is a mini-jack, then for a stereo L/R connection (like to a PC or MP3 player).

    2. If it is a 1/4" jack, then for either a balanced line (microphone level) connection or a send/return (on a audio mixer) connection.

    A RTS jack has three wires, one connected to the ring (ground), one connected to the sleeve, and one connected to the tip.

    A 1/4" RTS looks like the following...
    Notice the 2 black insulator rings separating the plug tip into 3 sections: ring, tip and sleeve.

    What? He said x = something. I want to know why he said that.
  10. Thanks for the inputs guys, i still can't get this work :rollno: . I'm not sure if my 1/4 jack is correct. Its the switchcraft 11, it has a tip and a sleeve, i ground the sleeve and stick the tip into a IC. Still nothing. I tried the 3.5mm he said and it didn't make a sound. Trying to make a small amplifier. Would it just be easier to stick the output of the IC into a little speaker than to stick it to this 3.5mm jack to hear it thru headphones? Thanks
