    Is this an AES connector?


    I have seen this somewhere before.

    It says "Record P/B" under it. (record / playback ?)

    There is one for the front left/right and one for the rear left/right.


    Kind of looks like a MIDI cable hookup. I don't know that they had MIDI back in 1970 though...

    No. It's called a DIN plug. It was invented back in the late 50's and was used as a means of having both record and playback connections in one easy, can't fuck up, type connection for a tape recorder.

    The connection was popular on european equipment and on some Japanese stuff up-to the mid 80's and after that, it just kinna faded away, just like analog is doing these days.

    MIDI stole this plug design.

    Cheers!
