The ASUS VivoMini VC66R has only one socket for an audio jack:

How can I tell whether this will support only audio-out (headphones), or combination audio in-and-out (in which case I can use an adapter/socket splitter)

    Spec page an audio output jack. I assume this means audio out only, like headphones, etc. – DrZoo Jan 2 '18 at 19:47
  • I recommend contacting the ASUS support for your country. See page 40 of the user manual: dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Desktop/Vivo_PC/VC66/… . There is no mention of audio input. – davidmneedham Jan 2 '18 at 19:51
  • @DrZoo: But the actual spec page is less specific. Also, previous model had both an input and an output socket. – einpoklum Jan 2 '18 at 19:52
  • @davidmneedham: I've just written them, let's see what they say. – einpoklum Jan 2 '18 at 19:55
  • Searching other sites for reviews, they all say audio-output jack. So I'm doubting it takes input and output. – DrZoo Jan 2 '18 at 20:01

I wrote ASUS support, and they say:

Dear sir/ madam,

Thank you for your email.

This device makes use of a so called combo jack. These jacks do no allow the use of normal microphones as the connection is different from a normal 3.5 jack.

So apparently it's not just audio out. I'm still not 100% sure I should take their word on it, but this was pretty explicit.
