    well, if memory servers it's a hookup for your modem, an external speaker of sorts. I've never tried using it before, it may or may not function well as a general line-in

    I beleive TAD is short for Telephone Answering Device, which means if you have a modem card that have some telephony capability, such as speaker phone, you may want to connect it to your sound card.
