After I posted I checked the schematics on Geoff's site. And noticed the same.
To bad they did not fix this. When the audio was on the rear panel, you could argue that the 3.5mm jack was chosen since there was not enough space on the rear panel to accomodate the high impedance RCA (red/white) audio pair.

But now audio is on the front panel, with a connector type that is common for headphones, it is an invitation to connect headphones.
A missed opportunity....


Maybe for Gen 3 .. ?

This is fixed on the RetroMax 2.3a design (Generation 2 compatible) as it can drive headphones directly. You can plug headphones into the jack.
