Photograph would help to determine what Tuchel connector you have on the microphone now.
That is because there are different types of Tuchel connectors, also in the three pin version.
Maybe you have experience with Nagra/Studer 5 pin inputs/outputs?

Try the BINDER 680 series.
Or Tuchel/Amphenol T 3504 001.

Wrong types I see now….!
Your Stellavox does not have screw type connectors, but bayonet types.
I will look if I can find these for you.

Found the Amphenol/Tuchel: series C091B (bayonet) and Binder type 678.

What do you mean ? What Nagra and what Studer 5 pin in-/outputs ?
Any piece of equipment in particular ??
They are practically all different, you see....

Hi again and thanks for your help.

Sorry, I got mixed up with Nagra and Studer.
The Stellavox mixer was designed to go with Nagra recorders.
Yes, nothing to do with Studer!

I thought the tuchel inputs on the Stellavox are screw-in type. I'm wrong?

Looking at your photographs I see notches on the left- and right hand side of the connector.
So I think you are wrong indeed.

The PREH's will fit !
You could consider this as a low cost version from the Binder or Amphenol/Tuchel connectors.
Quality is very good: I still use these with my UHER 4000 Report.

Thanks John and Studerfreak.

So I'm wrong again more palmface

Actually I have some of those tuchel connectors John posted earlier. Do I wire them up the same way as the M69N (6) diagram above even though they're 5 pin?

It's not actually a case of "The PREH's will fit" - the sockets pictured ARE Preh sockets and are specifically designed for Preh plugs.

They are different from Tuchel (which use a screw-on DIN connector).

Not sure I agree with this - basically, both Preh and Tuchel looked into making more professional, metal bodied, lockable versions of the standard DIN connector.

Preh went for a twist-lock which is fully compatible with non-locking and Tuchel sockets (though it will only lock in a Preh socket).

Tuchel went for a screw lock which is probably the more secure, but I think less compatible.

Do some of you know a link where I can see how to unscrew a female u47 Tuchel connector for soldering nieuw wires to this.

That's not exactly 500-700! Just bought one new a few years ago for my old Sennheisers and Beyerdynamics. 10 meters are 5 bucks more. Might be easier to order them from Germany, 'cause these connections were wide spread here and a lot of folks still have zillions of these old mics laying around.

I know the case is closed, but just in case people with tuchel-problems read this thread...

The connectors you now link to are quite different from the large multipin Tuchel connector as used on the U47's.
And these are getting more and more expensive.

The link to the Sennheiser conversion kit is very usefull for owners now having an MD421 with "small Tuchel" or DIN connector.

Sorry for this, I ignored the Neumann-case. Just related to the initial posting about Beyerdynamic.
The large Amphenol tuchels are 240,- here in Germany.
