Panasonic 380, 780, 880 Freeview machines audio out.

Do these machines have L and R audio out through RCA sockets so I could connect to a hifi amplifier (no HDMI, digital or co-ax sockets)? The manuals have a diagram implying them on p.89 but no photos.
I might like to play audio CDs with it and not have to turn on the TV, as my CD deck is getting rather creaky.
The Panasonic website quotes "Audio Out: AV1 / AV2 (21 pin), Audio Out (pin jack)". I've never heard the term 'pin jack' but maybe it's the same as an RCA jack (socket). I wonder why they don't use the usual names Scart and RCA?

Thanks

Bizarrely these manuals are the first I have known from Panasonic that have not included a detailed labelled rear view diagram of the unit.

There is actually a rear view of the machine on page 123 of the BW780 / 880 manual but it is small and unlabelled.

But to get to your central question- Yes - They have L and R audio outs [Phono] which they refer to as Pin Jacks.

Thank you for your reply. I had downloaded the manuals, but admit I hadn't looked as far as p.123. I guess the three sockets next to the scarts are video and audio out.
