    Maybe a dum question but, I Just wondered how does stereo signal (left and right) goes into a single connection as Im going 2 phono into my single input on my powerbook.

    Many Thanks!

    A stereo signal involves a signal for the left channel, a signal for the right channel and a ground (to form a circuit between the two audio devices).

    A TRS jack has three connections, tip, ring and sleeve (hence the name TRS). Left and right go down the tip and ring, and the sleeve carries the ground. :)
