He wouldn't have to mess with the socket, John, just open the DIN plug and
move the wire from pin 5 to pin 7. That would work fine.

a trick to working on din plugs, cut the top and bottom off a potato (
flat like a little table) and stick the din plug into the potato to hold it
still and it also acts as a heat sink so the other pins don't come loose..
