I need help identifying this connector!

Hello and thanks for helping out.

I just found a Hohner Pianet Model M and am trying to figure out the best way to modernize it for my studio without hacking away at it too much.
What is the connector in th center? It is for headphone out. If I can find an adapter or build one I will, but I need to know what this connector is called first.
Thanks again!

Well, it's a DIN plug. But i don't know how that particular combination of pins is called.

Thanks for the response Monomer.

Yeah, I cant find any particulars on pin-out on that din connector at all. The 5 pin din next to it is a common pin configuration for hifi systems, but I'm completely stumped on the centre one.

In the mean time, I've installed 1/4" TS Jack's to the amp and from the Pianet pickups. If I use the amp, I'll just pull from the line level in the other din.

If anyone is reading this and is familiar with this connector, please let me know!
Cheers.

Here is the Hohner M Manual

The Connectors are input / output DIN connectors - although I have no idea how they are wired or work. There is a schematic in the manual above - you could sus it out there.

Thanks Papanate.
I did find the manual already, but it is a bit of extra work as the schematic notes are in German. I'll figure it out.
Ideally though, I wont have to further modify the actual instrument. Now that I know what the connection is called, I can build an adapter.

This electric keyboard is pretty rare from what I can see. It sounds gorgeous though! The phaser section on the amplifieradds so much to the raw sound of the vibrating reeds.
Cheers!
