1USB Sound CardHighly recommend. The headset output jack on my laptop broke, and a USB sound card was the only way I could get audio output.

Notes:
  • Use shielded cables whenever possible, to minimize AC hum.
  • Qty=2 are for items that are often used or lended to other callers - you'll rarely get them back!
  • Identify your cables and connectors, perhaps by attaching colored tape or name tags to each component.
  • The above list should be sufficient. Occasionally, a connector not listed above might be required (for example, a 1/8" female to 1/4" male), but you'll be able to combine two of your connectors to get the desired result.
