headset jack issues


Mar 21, 2008, 1:45 PM
I'd like to hook up stereo earphones, or my car stereo to my DLX, to use it as a music player, but I'm having trouble finding a headset adapter that works properly.

I have a normal 1/8" to 3/32" stereo adapter I bought at radio shack, but when it's plugged in all the way, I only get the right channel. I have to pull it out just slightly before I get both left and right.

I also picked up a Shure MPA-2B adapter, which has the third ring, so it can transmit microphone signal, but that has the same problem as the stereo adapter -- I need to pull it out just a tiny bit to get stereo out of it.

Is the headset jack somehow proprietary, or have I just been unable to find the right adapter to get? Anyone know what that adapter might be?
