Hopefully just a quick question..... Am I correct in thinking that all 6 'legs' (poles) of the jack socket should be soldered to the appropriate contact points on the 1.2.0 PCB? I ask because for hard-wired mics. you suggest only 5. A real newbie question! 😋 Thanks.

One question regarding the pins... If used a mono mini jack 3.5 mm, the ring is absent, having only the sleeve part (ground) and the tip (left channel). That would mean both ground pins and jack detect pin have "the same mini jack part". Does it work fine anyway, or we must have a right and left channel? Thanks!
Great Alex - thanks. Will probably solder all 6 then as that will help with ensuring a solid connection of the two parts.
You don’t need to connect the one marked ‘unconnected’ but probably just as easy to solder all six.
