    Default Cassette Cable

    Hi, does anybody have a cassette cable for a Tandy trs-80 model 4. I've tried to look on eBay with no avail. If anybody has a spare one that they wouldn't mind donating I would be most appreciative. Thanks!

    What is the end goal? is it to hook up speakers, cassette, cellphone cassette emulator?

    if it's all of those, then yeah, buying that cable that mloewen posted would be your best option.. if it's just something like an audio cable, you can technically just wire a cable up from inside the computer. I actually just installed a mini amplifier and pc speaker inside my model 4 last night so i don't have to deal with the cable and external speakers.

    5 pin DIN connectors are very easy to find, and, well, you don't *need* to use Mono phono plugs if you can't find them. Solder the two ring connectors in parallel on a stereo plug and, bang, it's effectively the same as a mono.
