How to pair the RCA to 5 Pin DIN?
Dear All,
I'm noob here and I've search through this forum of how to diy the 2 RCA to 5 Pin Din for my old philips reel to reel player.
As far as I know, the 5, 4 are for the L,R signal. And 2 is for grounding, so, can I ground the sleeve of my 2 RCA cable together into pin 2? Will it cause any distortion or hum to the amplifier?

Standard pinout for 5 pin din on a tape recorder is

Pin 3 Left output
Pin 5 Right output
pin 2 earth
Pin 4 right input
pin 1 left input

to go from the tape to a preamp use pins 3,5 and 2 where 3 and 5 goto the inner pin of the RCA and pin 2 to both shells.

to record from a tape out on a preamp connect the RCA's to 2(earth) 4 and 1

(for the tape in socket of a pre-amp the wiring is reversed to 3 and 5 inputs and 1 and 4 outputs)

Hopefully I got it the right way round, I still use DIN on my old amp ;)
