O.T.: Compu-Voxx

I've got a couple of these units too. It records about 20 seconds of sound
(at least mine do, I believe there were other models) and plays it back in
a loop at the desired FM frequency. The input power is a 5 pin male DIN
rated 22VAC and 20VA (reads on supply).

Looking at the the plug, from left to right the pinout is as follows 1 4 2
5 3 (with standard DIN numbering, measured with multimeter): (1) 23V
[between 1&2] (4) n/c (2)common (5) n/c (3) -11V [between 1&3 or 2&3]

1 3
 4 5

I believe this unit only requires 22VAC between 1&2. These units were used
in realestate to give a short blurb about a house. Apparently they
retailed for $11 000 (?) back when the previous owner bought them.
