    Default Cable substitution on an old turntable.

    Hello I retrieve these turntable, (I don't know if you can call this turntable...). I get this antiquity from my grand mother and I want to change the cable to plug this into my powered speakers.

    So this seems to be MIDI cable and I want to have R & L Cinch instead.

    So can I cut the cable and replace it by R & L Cinch ?

    Thanks.

    This doesn't seem to be a midi cable to me and it might be a balanced signal so cinch wouldn't work.

    It's a very old DIN socket. 4 pins, 2 for left and 2 for right. Cut it off and re-solder to whatever you need

    The Dual 1010 seems broken so I retrieve this one from my mother, (so sexy ( I'm speaking about the turntable)).

    It's work fine but I still want to change the cable, I try to change the speaker which was connected by an other of my old 5.1 system it work fine, but what I want is to record audio from the vinyl straight to my computer.

    Is there anyone who know how is call that RED / BLACK cable with naked end ?
    Can I directly cut on of my earphone Jack to solder it with the end of this cable to plug it into my microphone computer for recording instead of having the speaker connected to it ?

    Thanks.


    PS: If anyone know the model name I'm really interested.
