2 Metre Long Standard RF Cable for aerial type connection to analogue TV
Composite TV Cable
A 3 Metre long composite video TV cable (phono plug-to-phono plug) useful for connecting a Spectrum that has been composite-modded to the TV.
Spectrum EAR (or MIC) cable
A 1.2 Metre long cable with a 3.5mm mono jack plug on each end. Suitable for connecting between the Spectrum and tape deck's EAR sockets (or MIC sockets). Note this is a single cable so if you want to connect both EAR and MIC you will need two of them.
In-line Power Switch for 48K Spectrums
A brand new on-off switch cable that connects between the DC jack of the Spectrum PSU and the computer's power socket. Saves wear and tear on the Spectrum DC input and eliminates the need to constantly connect / disconnect the DC plug for reset etc.
The switch leads have been specially wired to switch the positive supply line, which generic switch cables do not when used with the Spectrum.
Please note before ordering: Some early Spectrum PSUs have a smaller diameter DC jack plug than is standard for modern 2.1mm jack sockets. To fit the socket on this cable the PSU plug (metal barrel) needs to be 5.5mm wide (not 5.0mm) - to the naked eye it's hard to tell so it's best to lay the DC jack on a ruler and use a magnifying glass. The shape is also slightly different - please see this diagram as a guide.
In-line Power Switch for Spectrum 128 / 128+2
A brand new on-off switch cable that connects between the DC jack of the Spectrum PSU and the computer's power socket. It saves wear and tear on the Spectrum's connector and eliminates the need to constantly connect / disconnect the DC plug for a full reset. This version has been specially made for the Spectrum 128 ("toast rack") / +2 (the grey 128) :-
