I was going to make up a little box carrying a coaxial power connector, a
2.5mm jack socket (remote control input) and the switch, with a short
length of cable ending in the DIN plug (I was also toying with the idea
of putting a 3.5mm socket on it for the monitor headphone connection, but
I doubt I'd ever use that facilty. In fact I bought all the bits and then
found I needed new belts in the cassette recorder...
