NeXTStation Color monitor cable pinout needed

Actually the NeXT monitors (color) only use the three coaxial leads from
the slab, the rest terminate on the 19 pin D shell connector that plugs
into the soundbox. Splicing the D-shell into the Sun cable is too mucxh
trouble. Checking ebay tonight showed me:

This is a reasonable price and would make you slab all original as well
as not risking damage to your hardware with a bad/wrog connection.
Remember, the NeXT monitor port also carries + and -12v at several amps
to power the sound box and power for the old monochrome monitor.
