I am surprised you have not been answered yet!

The Icom has a neat 13 pin DIN connector on the rear panel. All of your connections are there.

RX audio, TX audio and HSEND (HF PTT) and VSEND (VHF PTT).

I built an audio interface using the DATA connector on the back of the 706MkIIG- it's the small connector that looks like a PS/2 mouse connector. These are typically used to connect packet TNCs. Nice thing about these is the pin-out is STANDARDIZED, unlike the proprietary ACC connectors. This allows me to use same cable to run SSTV and other digital modes on both my Icom 706MKIIG and Kenwood TM-D700! If you can't find the connectors, Kenwood makes a cable with the small connector already on one end, bare wires on other end ready for soldering, I think the model number is PG-5, goes for around $15.

I have used isolation transformers on the RCV and XMT of the radio into the PC directly. I also have used the RigBlaster, the MFJ-1275M and just Radio Shack Xformers. I use SSTV with no problems and keep the volume low to not overdrive the PC sound card. I use only a laptop.

I used a RigBlaster and now a MFJ-1275M to interface the computer to my 706s. I have used that with all three models of the 706 and it works great. Before I used the interfaces I just made an audio insolator in the lines from the soundcard to the radio mike input and speaker out. I used VOX to send the pictures and had no troubles. Adjust the VOX and PC volume so it was clean and the reception was clean too. Good luck.
