Default Philips 308 - Cartridge model

Hello everyone,

I have no experiences with turntables before. But it happened to have an old Philips 308 hidden somewhere in my house with no power cord. I became obsessed with that and decided to fix it. I adapted a new source using a female socket found on PCs, bought a new belt and the platter seems to be spinning pretty good on 33 and 45. The problem is that I'm not sure if it's working with the right speed.

Apart from that, this TT has no cartridge and stylus kit. The socket seems to be completely different from the usual half-inch and p-mounts, as shown on pic.

Its output comes with a 5 pin DIN male plug, and I have no idea if converting it on RCA plugs or P2 or P10 plugs is possible.

Do you guys have any ideas from where should I start?
Big thanks!

It's a slide in cartridge, something like this Philips Cartridge & Stylus AG3306,AG3310, AG-3224, AG3228, AG3302 7435626081097 | eBay . Not sure exactly which one though.

The manual is available here Philips GA 308 - Manual - Dual Speed Record Player - Vinyl Engine

5 pin can be converted to RCA and plug in adaptors are available from usual mega online supply boutiques.

EDIT: There is a 1/2 inch adaptor sled available as well, but you would have to hunt ebay for it.
