    Default Correct 7 Pin DIN connector for power of C64

    Can someone recommend me a good, correct 7 Pin DIN connector that can be used to connect to the power in of the Breadbin C64 / VIC20? Building a power supply for a couple of machines I received for free to test them and use / clean/ repair, as they came with no power supplies...

    Looking for a connector with solder cups so I can easily attach the wires to it using the cups...

    THANKS!!

    Found some on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/283241589031?nordt=true

    I bought a few of the 8-pin 262 degree DIN connectors for making an A/V cable for my C64, which works very well (added noise reduction and a 300Ohm resistor for the Chroma signal on the S-Video cable).

    I used REAN NYS323 connectors for the SaV64. Very high quality. You should heat shrink the individual wires because of the metal DIN sleeve.

    I'd love to see your final project!
