Hey Dino,

If you are of a mind to solder and we found you the parts, you could make your own.

If you are the mind to tell me what to solder to what then I would be happy to do it... [Smile]

OK, let me do some research and get back to you here.

I'm thinking what you are after is a DIN male loudspeaker plug on one end and a 1/4" monaural inline female speaker jack on the other.

Right?

OK, let's start at the projector end.

You need a connector like this:

DIN Male

The catch is these are stocked in the UK and you pay a minimum $20 shipment per order.

-but Steve Osborne sells 'em too, and it's good to support the local Sheriff!

If it was me I'd buy one of these for the other end, lop the male end off and add it to my junk drawer. (I'll never use most of it!)

The wiring is simple: the flat spade on the DIN goes to the sleeve of the 1/4" female. The pin on the DIN goes to the tip on the 1/4". (an ohmmeter makes this much easier to figure out...)

An RCA female terminated cable should be easy to find. Terminating all this stuff into the DIN male would be awfully messy. I suggest either 1/4" or RCA on different cables.

Absolutely I am wasn't suggesting making one that could accommodate either, I meant making multiples for 1/4 inch and multiples for RCA........ Thanks, will do some ordering then some soldering......

OK: I'll work on your RCA female a little later.

RCA plugs and sockets also are known as Phono plugs and sockets here in the UK.

In fact I've always referred to them here as Phono Connectors rather than RCA. I would say overall, here, this is what they are more commonly known as in the fraternity.

Is that the same in the U.S.?

Actually here 1/4" plugs are often called "Phone Plugs" because they started out life over a hundred years ago on telephone switchboards.

-some things never go out of style!

Sometimes they are also called "Phono Plugs" as well. This is a goof since they actually have no direct involvement with phonographs.

I just know RCAs as "RCAs". (Could just be me!)

I do like them better than those wire clamp connections at the back of some amps.

1/4 inch Jack plugs and sockets are known as just that alone here Steve, though obviously termed mono or stereo depending on how many insulating bands seperate the plug / socket.

Also known in our now modern day European existence as 6.3mm
and the smaller kind 3.5mm.

I'll see your "6.3mm" and raise you "0.05mm".

-I see them here as "6.35mm"!

Thomas Jefferson tried to introduce the Metric System here about 200 years ago...

-just didn't fly!

I don't mind either system, really. The problem I run into is working in a place where the construction people are all feet and inches and the science people are all centimeters and meters.

Engineering is caught in between!

A few times we've bought three times too much or 1/3rd as much as needed!

How we ever managed to build a half mile ring-shaped building and actually have it close on itself is almost a miracle!

"We missed by a Yard!"
"No...a Meter!"

Twenty years later...
"What's that strange corner?"
"I think a phone booth used to be there."

Yes, I think it's 6.35 here also technically speaking, though the 5 hundredths of a mm sometimes gets dropped.
