Exclamation What type of connector is this?

My neighbor wants to hook up his really old stereo system. I don't remember anything about it. It has these strange connectors on the back that I have never seen before. I was just curious to see if anyone had a clue as to what they are. Thanks.

That proprietary connector looks like vintage Pioneer. Circa late 60's, to mid 70's.
I've seen them sold on e-bay occassionally... but they run about 9 bux a pop, plus shipping.
Why not open up the case and wire up what-ever connectors you prefer?
hope this helps,
David

My parents' Dual integrated receiver/phono has the same speaker connectors. They do suck.

They are "DIN speaker connectors" if you need to buy them.

Hi,
I have a DIN speaker plug in my hand and it is horrible.

The spade is about 4mm wide and the pin is about 1.2mm diameter.
The spade is at right angles to the pin and pin to spade gap is about 2.5mm.

Your pic does not look like this.

Looks like a modified Cinch-Jones connector.

Right. The pictures look like the plugs for my vintage Pioneer SX-727.
They are definitely no DIN plugs.
Close to $20 for a pair seems a little bit much.

I think that one large and one small male AMP FastOn-Connector per
channel should do the job. The larger ones seem to be blue, the
smaller ones red. (if they have an isolation collar at all.) They are
often used in cars.
If you have a file, 4 of larger ones should do.
Maybe not pretty, but it should work.
(Just tested that the blue one fits nicely into the wider jack, I don't have the small ones here.)

regards, Gerhard
