Abstract (en)

A first aspect of the invention is related to an audio device comprising a main unit and a wired remote control. The main unit has an interface for connecting the remote control and for exchanging audio signals and command data signals between the main unit and the remote control unit. The interface comprises a data jack to transmit and/or receive command data signals, and an audio signal jack to transmit audio signals from the main unit to the remote control. The data jack and the audio signal jack are separately arranged on the main unit. This specific configuration allows a large variety of possible set-ups with a minimum expense of different jacks. A second aspect of the present invention is related to a plug assembly for a wired remote control unit for controlling an audio device. The plug assembly comprises a double rod plug having an audio rod and a data rod integrated in a single isolating housing. The plug assembly can most advantageously be used in connection with an audio device according to the first aspect of the invention. <IMAGE>
