Neumann UM 57 power supply input connector?
 
2 Attachment(s)
So, I have an original power supply that has a non original input connector, need the original connector to match up with new original mic cable that just arrived from Germany. Didn't realize connector on there was non original, silly me.
Anyone know where it could be had?

thx and cheers!
Martin


photo on left is what I have, one on right is what I need.

What you have is a Cannon connector (or German equivalent) . What would "normally be there is a TUCHEL connector like these. https://www.studioelectronics.biz/su..._detail&p=3635 Turchel and Amphenol are owned by the same company now. Best of luck!

thanks Tom. I really need the surface mount version of that, didn't find it on the site.

I would check Ebay for the connector. They are round and do attach with screws. There is a ring on the back of the Tuchel connector that secures it to the power supply. I am surprised that anyone would do what they did. Maybe they had problems getting a surface mount connector. You could contact Tuchel/Amphenol to see if they still have them. In the old days we could contact Gotham Audio for parts. They are still in business but not sure what they carry, here is their website, http://www.gothamaudiousa.com/ Best of luck!

ps. you may have to make an adapter plate if you want to hide the screw holes.

The connector on the PSU is a Tuchel (not Turchel), but the original is a Neumann special part that is not available via 3rd party. The shortcut might be to change the connector on the cable, or make up an adapter cable, to match what's on the PSU. It's a research project though, and can't be done from pictures, you need measurements and data sheets from Amphenol.

looks like I will be ordering from Germany unless there are ANY stateside.
NS86 6 pin flange socket connector.


Dear Mr Le Maire,

I believe you need the flange socket NS86 6-pin like the following picture. Attached you can see a brochure about all of the connectors (only in German language).
