FWIW ... I do a lot of JT65/JT9/FT8 digital, and I would definitely suggest getting an external USB soundcard for such work.

1. It eliminates the probably of transmitting any OS sounds/beeps/alarms along with your digital audio.
2.  Provides good isolation capabilities
3. While I'm assuming most built-in laptop soundcards can provide the 48kHz DVD quality playback/recording you need for programs like WSJT-X, you definitely will have that in many of the external soundcards. I use a Sound Blaster SBX proaudio soundcard I got a Amazon for around $60-65. I've used it with my IC-715, and KX3 without any issues.

I read the Q&A about this -- it turns out there are several different
standards which look the same externally. This one is OMTP;  for a Mac, you
need CTIA. They differ in the mic and ground connection. There is also
TRRS. I don't know what that one is.

So don't just buy one of these adapters without checking what your socket
is.

Yes, that is the one I have. There are probably less expensive ones I
could have ordered but I needed it "NOW" and bought it off the shelf. It
works well for me with a new laptop and Windows 10 (Ugh).

Hi Jorge,The "Y"connector will not work, There is a very specific
connector with three rings and a tip needed for that single new style jack
on the laptops because that jack incorporates both a mono input for the mic
and a stereo output for the headphones. A very specific connector I found
that works is the Sennheiser, part no. PCV 05, called Combo Audio Adapter
with a produce code of 504518. That part has worked well for me. I found
that part at a Fry's Electronics in Austin, TX. An alternative is buy a
cheap gaming headset that utilizes that single jack and splice in the mono
plug for the mic and the stereo plug for the headphone to go to the K3.
I hope this helps.

  Hello

I do digital modes with two cables from K3´s LINE IN and OUT to MIC and
PHONES on my old laptop

Looking for a new Laptop, I notice they combine MIC and PHONE in ONLY ONE
3.5 mm connector

Any problem with that?  Just need a Y cable to connect LIN IN and OUT in K3
and on the other side a 3.5 mm audio connector to connect in the laptop and
all will be working correctly?

Or is better to stay with a laptop with two separates connectors for MIC
and PHONE?

thanks
Jorge
