The marketing is spectacular though. I was thinking this as I heard an ad a few months ago. No muss, no fuss. Just drop it all into a box. Great branding for a terrible product.

Can you identify AC cord for old Panasonic VTR?

I'm playing with an old Panasonic reel to reel VTR but it did not come with a power cord. It's an oddball plug and although I could fashion something to work with it, I'd rather get a proper fitting...
