The output/headphone port on my Montblanc is worn out, and since I'm not really in the market for a portable anymore except as a counterpart to a desktop setup, I would rather repair mine than buy a replacement. More broadly, I feel like it's silly that a failure-prone component like this can brick a piece of audio gear and I want a bit more experience soldering it. From what I've seen, the process consists essentially of opening the housing and replacing the port, then soldering it into place, which seems simple enough. Has anyone else tried a similar repair, and are there any nuances to the operation that I might not have noticed?
