Question 3-way Phono Socket Strip for Conquest Auto

Does anyone have a 3-way socket strip as used in the Dansette Conquest Auto R/Player Mk1? This has two switched RCA(Phono)Sockets and one Unswitched for Stereo, L/S and Tape. The sockets presumably only work with the old type of long-reach Phono Plugs. I've already checked the current Dansette Products Ltd. website, which doesn't list these items, but haven't yet checked e-bay or other possible sources.

Default Re: 3-way Phono Socket Strip for Conquest Auto

Haven't got one but should be easy to make, however I'm wary of these audio switched things, as often the switches are rubbish quality. I had a speaker one, for switching 2 sources to one speaker, the rocker sw went OC after very few uses, this not ideal when you want a load on your valve amp. Luckily I built protection into the amp, still, it shows the potential pit falls.

I made my own in the end with 4mm banana sockets etc and big 4mm "u" jumpers, no dodgy switches in the signal path. Just a thought.

Andy.

Sorry not to have repled before, Andy, but I've been away for a few days. Maybe I'll have to make up a replacement socket/switch panel as you did, with the advantage that it will accept modern RCA/Phono plugs, the older long-reach types being as rare as hen's teeth!
