I had friend run new TV sound through a high-end Harmon Kardon stereo (used but good!). Speakers on new TV were hopeless, and TV had no place for headphone jacks.
I need to watch with headphones because of lousy hearing; need "proximity effect" -- sound close to ear.
This worked OK for a while, but now can only get mono. Have switched around adapters, jacks and headphones; tried them on other audio equipment; problem is with the stereo input (hole).
Was told that stereo comes from jack touching SIDES of input. ???
Dilemma: Can the input be repaired economically?
Hate to buy another stereo which might not even have as good sound.
Any thoughts welcome.
