old eq with 8 pin Din plugs in the back?

sup guys, so i bought an oldschool technics equalizer from a crackhead for 10 bucks because it looked expensive and is in nearly new condition. problem is that the connections it has in the back are 8 pin din plugs. does anybody know if or how i can integrate this to a modern audio system? iv'e looked online like crazy, but have no luck finding anything reffering to this item.

I remember Alpine, Kenwood and Pioneer used to use them in the 80's. I didn't know technics ever made car equipment.

According to what I can find, I think Technics was part of Panasonic, try searching their website - look in the customer service section. what is the model number ?

I actually remember when this EQ was out.... I must be getting old. I suggest going to R@dio Sh@ck and seeing if you can find a similar din plug. Beleive it or not, they sell various ones and you may get lucky. It's worked for me a time or two.

you will then gave to figure out the wiring of the DIN plug to make it work

Wiring shouldn't be that difficult. Top rows will be postive bottom rows negative while a center pin will be remote turn on or constant power.

Heck, send me the EQ and I'll sort the wiring configuration out.

This message is for 92 Silverado I know this is six years after your discussion about the Technics equalizer din plugs, but I have been searching for a Technics car stereo equalizer for 25 years now. I have one that I bought 30 years but it's been fried for the last 25 years and I've been trying to fix it. I can't believe you managed to find one for 10 bucks. anyhow, it sounds like you might have the Technics cyEQ 14 or maybe the EQ 10 I have the EQ 14 do you still have it.
if so I will pay.$$$
