Got myself a KUBE for R107 but came without a power supply.

The KUBE is powered by an external supply that should provide 18-0-18AC voltage (36V with center tap).

That's the easy part - to obtain a transformer and parts and mount it into a plastic box.

I'm trying to find the proper plug to connect to the KUBE. What is in the back of the unit looks vaguely like a 5 pin DIN socket but it's not. Does have 5 pins but the spacing is different an a normal 5pin DIN plug doesn't fit. Makes sense for it to be different to the typical play-rec cable but gives me a hard time to connect the power without altering the unit.

Anyone knows how this plug is described?

You need a 240 degree 5 pin DIN plug. (The regular rec/play 5 pin is a 180 degree. )
