I got an old Siemens RW666 LP player, but the cable is a little short... What plug is this, so I can get an extension cord?

That looks like a 180 degree 5 pin DIN they were fairly common a few decades ago. less so recently.

180 degree describes the angle populated with pins

  • \$\begingroup\$ nice... So quick! as I looked up parts listings I found it is also branded "5pin DIN MIDI" or "5Pin DIN Audio MIDI AT", befitting the audio-source it carries. \$\endgroup\$ – Trish Nov 4 '18 at 9:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ MIDI is Musical Instrument Digital Interface - it uses that plug as did IBM PC keyboards (prior to the PS/2) \$\endgroup\$ – Jasen Nov 4 '18 at 9:40

It is a DIN connector for analog audio signals, that were initially standardized by Deutsches Institut fur Normung (DIN) . Some of these connectors have also been used in analog video applications and digital interfaces.
