The skilled artisans in Transparent’s custom lab make this beautiful, sturdy adapter by hand. The adapter enables you to use RCA or XLR-terminated phono interconnects with any turntable/tonearm combination that has a DIN connection.
The adapter consists of a straight or 90-degree DIN connector followed by a very light and flexible, shielded tonearm cable. Order the standard 14″ or the optional 24″ cable length to suit the strain-relief requirements of your turntable/tonearm system. Order the long cable version to allow sufficient strain relief on turntables with soft suspensions. The cable terminates into a beautifully machined, anodized housing. The housing comes equipped with a grounding post and 2 highest quality gold-plated RCA jacks or gold plated XLR connectors. Mounting screws or heavy duty Velcro securely holds the housing on the turntable chassis or a nearby stable object.
This adapter is only one of the solutions offered by Transparent to users of DIN-terminated turntables/tonearms. Transparent also offers optional built-in DIN terminations on MusicLink Plus Phono Cables to OPUS MM2 Phono Cables.
MusicLink Phono Cables are only available with RCA terminations. The Transparent DIN>RCA Phono Adapter is perfectly suited for DIN applications with Transparent MusicLink Phono Cable; however, it is an excellent choice to use with any RCA?interconnect used as a phono cable with a tonearm that requires DIN connections.
