Hey guys does anyone know of any high quality 1/8" stereo jacks? I'm not happy with the one's I got from digikey part number "CP-3535-ND" I seem to lose connection in one side of the audio if I move my head phone plug around in a certain way' I changed the jack but the new one dose the same thing thanks.

Do a more extensive search here. There was a not-too-old thread related to this subject. The conclusion was that the best available at that time were a jack from Digikey (not the one you specified, this one is around $3.50 or so each) and the Switchcraft jack you can get from Mouser, among others. Search Digikey for 3.5mm jack or somethig like that to find it. It is made by (or for) CUI, but is all metal and much nicer than the CP-3535 (I am assuming this is the one Tangent recommends in the parts lists for CMoy, etc.)
