From CPCWiki - THE Amstrad CPC encyclopedia!
Stereo Sound Connector (3.5mm, female)
1 Left (the contact at the tip of the plug) 2 Right (the middle contact) 3 Ground (the contact at the cable-end of the plug)

KC Compact Stereo
KC Compact uses a 5pin DIN connector
1 Left (A+B) __ __ 2 GND / - \ 3 NC | | 4 Right (C+B) |3 1| 5 NC \5_2_4/ Shield GND
- Aside from the above DIN connector, the KC compact additionally outputs Stereo on the Scart connector, and Mono on the Tape connector, and Mono on the UHF modulated video signal.
- Unlike the CPC, the KC Compact does NOT include an internal speaker.
Aleste Tape/Sound Connector (female)
Aleste 520EX uses a 5pin female DIN connector
1 Tape In __ __ 2 GND / - \ 3 Sound Mono-Left | | 4 Tape Out |3 1| 5 Sould Mono-Right \5_2_4/ Shield GND
- The Left/Right pins are actually shortcut with each other on the Aleste mainboard, so sound is mono. The mono sound is also output on the Aleste's Monitor connector.
- There is no Tape Motor Control (the corresponding PIO bit is mis-used as Printer Strobe in the Aleste).
