ordinarily, an audio component like a preamp or amplifier uses RCA jacks instead of plugs. These are the rings with a hole in the middle of the plastic. The plug has an obvious male part sticking out of the plastic. farnell.co.uk stocks rca jacks and plugs: you can see the pictures in their selector charts. mouser.com with a warehouse in europe somewhere, also carries the switchcraft line of jacks, that has multi-jack arrays on a sub-assembly. Matching the dimensions of your device requires measurement by you, probably with a vernier or dial calipers.

Default minimizing shipping charges

I don't know how you communicate to the mouser.com website that you want to look at the European stock, not the Texas stock. On farnell.co.uk, they have a different name for their USA stock (newark.com). On the farnell website, be sure to check "stock items only" If you are on a budget. it pays to make sure that everything is in stock to try to get them to ship it in all one package, from the continent you live in.For out of stock items, newark sends you a new shipment every time an item dribbles in ($5.56 charge in my location). Even if everything is in stock, farnell may send two packages on the same day for two shipping charges if some of their stock is on the shelf and the rest is in the receiveing department. Mouser.com, I've only used their Texas warehouse, so good luck. They all take debit cards.
