I wish to transfer my LPs to CD. All methods I have seen assume that the turntable (or amp) has a pair of phono outputs that I can connect with a suitable cable to the sound card (possibly via a pre-amp). However my recently acquired Dual 504 turntable has a 5-pin DIN output and I have not found a suitable interconnect cable. Can anyone help? (I would go via my amplier except that it has no DIN input either). I am prepared to get stuck in with soldering iron and plugs/sockets if necessary but don't know what I am doing.
Thanks for your replies guys. Recap: I already have a lead for 5-pin DIN to 4 phono plugs from Maplin but am not sure which pair of plugs might simply give me left and right channels - the others also carry signals (possibly mono?) and the most likey pair generate very quiet input to my amp. Basically I don't understand what the four outputs are. There is a Maplin cable for 5-pin DIN to 2 x 3.5 headphone-type jacks but this doesn't seem to take me further forward as I still have double the number of signal leads than I want. Phil: I have found ADS Instant Video (554134) but not the item you suggest. I wonder if it is still available. Any more ideas? Thanks.
That's probably a cassette deck lead for tape record/play on older hifi's - either way you will get a stereo signal out of two plugs, and nothing from the others - get a multi meter on them. One of these pinout diagrams may match; click here
