Connections for a Grundig reel to reel tape recorder

I have an old Grundig tape recorder (1960's) which I wish to connect to an external tuner to transfer the recordings to my computer. It has Din plugs with symbols on them, but I don't remember what they stand for! Can you help? One symbol is a double wavy line, like '' = '', but wavy. Another symbol is a square with the right hand edge protruding beyond the edge top and bottom, like a square '' d '' without long upstroke. Another symbol is like a '' Q '' but reversed right to left. I hope you can help! Thanks very much. Bill Hart (Warrington, Cheshire).

With a bit of luck you may be able to find some adapters to allow a plug into the Line IN port of the computer.

Here is a site that appears to have the Grundig manual if you register ( its free). There may also be some very knowledgeable people there that you provide the info you need.

Tascam 22-2 no sound


Yes you need to hook it up to an amplifier and speakers through RCA cable on the back. And or you can use headphones if there is a headphone jack?
Also make sure there is something recorded on the reel tape in the first place. You can do a test recording of something like a CD from your CD player or record something, then play it back, make sure you turn the record input volume knob up and make the RCA connections on the back of the reel unit and connect to your playback source you want to record. When you playback the reel tape, the db meters should be moving on the front of the reel deck, if they move then you most likely have some sound recorded on the reel tape.
If you still can't hear any sound and the db meters are moving, then check all your connections again and volume output knob on the reel deck. Hope this helps?
