Question Need help: What kind of connector is this?

I need to find a few connectors like the ones in the picture below. They are used in the power section of a Wadia CD player, which I'm trying to convert to 220V operation.

Can anybody give me a clue as to where to find a similar item? Elements like brand, model, manufacturer, supplier, or any other element that can help me in locating this connector...
I've been browsing through the RS catalog without any success so far.

To put this object in the right scale, please note that each row of contacts exactly matches the standard PC power connectors (those that are used for CD/DVD burners and IDE/ATA hard disks). You could actually plug the PC connector in.

Thank you for your help!

If they are, I can't find them. The two rows of contacts are joined and there is a cut that prevents wrong insertions.
Any idea?

It's very hard to search for without at least some other information.
If you would have taken a picture with a ruler in the picture, I could at least get very accurate dimensions from the photo using a free program called Scion Image.

Pitch and whether it appears to be metric or english.
Pin diameter.
Mating connector. Is it wire, board etc.
