USB to phono lead

  raf290 13:34 PM 15 Jun 11

I use the 3.5mm 'headset out' to feed into an amplifier, but the socket has been damaged so I thought to use a USB lead as audio comes out like a USB headset. I want to know which leads to use to solder male phono plugs to as I have an old USB lead with Black, Red, White, Green and braided copper inside

You may not need to get the soldering iron out raf290, you may find what you require?

You cannot just solder wires from a USB plug to phono plugs they are incompatible systems. USB is digital and phono is analogue. Take a look at these if you want to get your audio that way.
