The pin connections for the 3-pin are:
White to Pin 1
Red to Pin 2 (Hot)
Blue to Pin 3 (Cold)
I have some Cello manual info somewhere but think it is only sales info, but will try and find it if it helps you
Thanks for the pin out, Richard.
Someone has since told me that the wire strands are individually insulated and it might take some sort of chemical to strip them for solder. So that answer might not be practical.
I'll try again today to find a stocking dealer for the 104. If I can't then on Monday I will buy directly from Fischer.
And thanks for the offer of the literature. What I need is a copy of an owners manual for the Cello Duet 350. I don'tthink that the sales lit will help me much with input levels, specs, and the other little things that an owner likes or needs to know. (For example, I'm going to try to run this off of balanced 240 volt power....)
As a Cello owner i feel like kicking in some experiences i have.
The Big mistake that Mr Cello made was to adopt for the Fischer 104 connector.
The 104 can only cope with cables of up to 8 mm dia.
The 105 can do up to 15 mm, and this type should have been the choice.
now Mr Cello was not know for his flexibility, and so he thought that every Cello owner should/would buy the Cello strings..
The ones that try real cables between their Cello amps know differently.. the strings sound like crap.
And have a problem with those darm Fischer connectors.
The Fischer connector itself is a fine piece of Swiss craftsmanship, mind you.
I replaced both my Encore and AudioSuite pre-amp with Neutrik XLR connectors, and i admit that it gave me thoughts firstly.
after having modified both preamps i can say with confidence that the Neutriks sound better than the Fischers.
I know there may be purists which may not want to believe this, but i have the experience.
The pin 1,2,3 have the same 1,2,3 on the Neutriks.
if you want more detailed information on the modification and the wire codes drop me an email.
The Duet 350 may be very easily converted to XLR connectors there is room to spare.
keep the vinyl spinning !
