Grace 707 Tonearm Phono Cable

Looking at a Grace 707 arm in good shape but it does not come with the phono cable. Do the Grace arms use a standard phono cable?

Grace 707...

Yup

5 pins inside the armbase are din-orientated in my G-727. I guess the 707 would be similar.

I don't believe they are standard.
My Grace's have a din plug but it is the male which is on the arm cable and female within the arm. They are 5 pin & 270 degrees.
I believe most cables are the reverse, i.e. female on the cable and male with in the arm base. Here is one on ebay which shows it:

Ha Ha

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Ask a simple question and get 2 totally diffrent answers.
My Grace's are the G series, so might be different.

Hi Gerard

The poster enquired re his 707 series arm, which I don't have. Mine is a G-727 Gyro Master which still has its original armlead. Female "din-type" 5-pin, metal-sheathed plug on the lead with a little locating screw on the plug. Inside the armpost are 5 "din-oriented" skinny pins.

It probably was incorrect on my part to offer this info as the 707's armlead config can of course be quite different to the G-727's :oops:

Regards

Checked further and the answer to the question is the Grace 707 tonearm cable has the 5 pins on the cable which is contrary to most tonearm cables, the Grace 727 and 747 included, wich have a female plug on the tonearm cable.

Yes it was odd, but the same as the G-940/960s.
Seams as if Grace manufactured some models one way and others another way.
