Default "DIN" Specifications

I put "DIN" in quotes because I recall reading somewhere that technically it's not truly a DIN standard, but some sort of Japanese standard.

In any case, I'm looking for the specs. Namely, the radius the pin centers are on, the angle between pins, pin diameter and barrel diameter.

Thanks!

I don't see anything in the spec equivalent to this:

Again, I seem to recall reading that while everyone calls it a "DIN" plug, it was never actually a DIN spec. Though I can't recall where I saw that mentioned.

of course there is a DIN that specifies those round multi-pin connectors, mostly referenced as 'DIN plugs'.
DIN specifies standards and rules of technique for Germany. These things do not need to be german inventions.
Looks like an adaptor with standard five pole jack pinout, but missing shield clamp on one side. What about the other side?
I don't think you would find a DIN describing this adaptor as a whole.

Nothing's on the other side. And it's not an adapter. It's the same basic connector as these:

This is the Analogue forum isn't it?

Sorry for the misdirection, I thought you were talking about DIN connectors not Japanese tonearm connectors . The picture makes it clear that it is the latter.

I remember Jonathan Carr saying that it did not actually conform to any published standard but was a de facto standard adopted by the Japanese tonearm makers. Perhaps you could ask Jonathan directly

Funny you should mention that.

Someone over on Audio Asylum mentioned the JIS standard, and from that I was able to find a post by Jonathan over there where he explained it. I just sent him an EMail.

Oh, here's Jonathan's post if anyone's interested.

What is the 5 pin DIN connector on the tonearm?
