Grace 707 Tonearm plug in wires

Postby ryan09 » 09 Aug 2018 19:27

Anybody got a decent lead on replacement wire set? Mine was pinched and shorted. The leads have a male Cardas plug on the tonearm end I think. I have seen a couple sets on flea bay but they are over a hundred bucks. Looking for a cheaper alternative if possible.

Grace used the reverse of most arms, for their cable connections, so they are not so easy to find. Nor are they cheap.
If the problem is close to the RCA plugs, cut the cable, and put new plugs on.
If it is close to the DIN plug, and if you can get into the plug, you could cut and re-attach.
Repairing the break in the cable would be possible, but finicky. Still cheaper than a new cable.

Cheers,
Alec

You should look for DIN 60*(degrees) connector/male,5 PIN,for G707..Cardas has it..or any other one,with that specification...
