Vintage Mixing Console, Power Supply Help

Oval Automations 16 Channel; I got this mixing console from my inlaws storage basement and it looks killer but I need to find a power cable that would fit it...

it is like a circle about and inch in diameter and it's got 6 pins in a circle and one in the middle.

Any idea what this is called or where I might find one?

Pics below...


thanks in advance!

Personally, I don't think that console would warrant the work involved, but here's your ONLY choice.

You absolutely need to get documentation and a schematic that details what and how the power supply rails are configured. Even if you found a plug that would mate with the receptacle on the console you would need to know what voltages went to each pin.
You actually need a power supply I'd imagine.

Research the company and try to find documentation and then have a qualified tech wire it up.

You might need to replace the receptacle.
A good tech can do this with ease.

See? It's not worth it is it?

Thanks for the help!

But why do you think it's not worth the work?

And also, I can't find one thing on OVAL AUTOMATIONS anywhere on the web...

thanks again

I did a Google search and found that address info on a Dunn and Bradstreet listing.
The listed website is no longer in existance.

I say it wouldn't be worth the effort because it will be a difficult process to get it powered up.
It looks like a lower end console although I don't know the brand and can't be sure.
I wouldn't expect too much from it.

It is probebly a re-branded Japanese or Far Eastern manufactured console.
Probebly pretty noisey, too

I could be wrong, but I've been around for many years and screwed with lot's of consoles and gear.

Good luck either way.
