Re: K3S Loose Microphone Connector

The 8 pins within the connector are tight; the part with some "play" is just the ring with the threads on it.

Mine is also loose.  I haven't opened it up, but I figured that the connector was just soldered to the board and not fastened to the front panel.  It seems that most electronic items are constructed that  way these days.  In other words, "they don't make 'em like they used to"
