Is there a hole (about 3/8") on the back panel for the grommet? Can you post a picture of the whole back panel?

Banana plugs CANNOT be used for AC power. No way, no how. Think of the exposed (and exposable) voltages - it's a widow-maker.

All good fortune,
Chris

The pic. posted is basically the whole back. There is no other receptacle of any sort other than what you see in the pic.

Tom B: There seems to be some confusion here.

Your picture shows two small round panel mount connectors, as well as an old 2 prong power out AC connector (no ground).

Your post has "power cords" in the title. It appears to most of the members that replied here that the 2 small round holes cannot be AC power connectors, as the mating connector would then have live AC mains voltage sitting on exposed male plugs, extremely dangerous and not likely.

Are the two round connectors some sort of signal connectors? Are these original or has this equipment been modified?

Can you post a picture of the bottom with the cover off? That would help alot at this point.......

perhaps it would help if you were to open it up and find out the following:


1. Just what do the two banana jacks connect to, and are they in fact insulated from the chassis. They do not look stock, and are not in the schematic nor in photos of the intereior of other units.

2. Find the primary wires for the power transformer, and see what is connected to them.
