Hi,

 

Is there a way, expansion or header-way to get a 3.5mm audio jack out from the NUC11TNB


I will not be able to pull audio from the HDMI ports since these will be blocked in the intended application. 

 

Thanks,

Only via USB...

  1. US$6.99 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08PCWHXGP
  2. US$8.99 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IRVQ0F8
  3. US$22.80 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XBZ38ZJ
  4. US$24.99 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FP8PG9N

I have used multiple of #2 to move speaker connection away from front panel. Works well. #3 is from Creative Labs, so should be better quality that the others. There are other options if you want 5.1 or 7.1 capabilities.

Hope this helps,

Hi Scott,

Thanks for those, they could potentially come in handy! The SoundBlaster one seems like a good "pro" canditate

 

Would you know if there's a way to use the 

  1. M.2 2242 Module Connector (Type B) (U in the figure)
  2. Combined Data/Power SATA Connector (V in the figure)

Since I've seen the expansion port use one of these ports giving a dual-USB and Ethernet adapter. Thought that this port could perhaps be used for an audiocard or USB. I'm trying to avoid the USB connector since the space around the NUC will be very limited and hard to fit a full-size USB.

 

Thanks again,

Hi @LeonWaksman 

Thanks! That was closer to what I was looking into, good source for other NUC-related stuff as well.

Ordering that lid to test it out, might actually work!

Funny that it's so hard to find these when googling around, it's even shown (dual usb and rj45) in Intels Product sheet and very little information (read as no infoirmation) about it.

Here is an other source (Gorite) Intel NUC Audio LID.

Thanks for covering Leon. I have been down for two days. Pam gets COVID booster and her Flu vaccine at the same time and has no symptoms other than sore arms. Me, I have been sick as a dog.

If the lids work for you, great. I am not a fan of the lids, however, simply because I stack my NUCs on top of each other. The other option is to purchase this bracket (https://www.microsatacables.com/intel-nuc-dawson-canyon-expansion-usb-bracket-gr-dws-brkt), which brings out the internal USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, making three extra USB ports externally.

Hope this helps,
