Akai RM16 vs Sony RM-16

Anyone eve compared the wiring between these two remotes? Plugs appear the same. I have two Akai remotes but no Sony remote. Wondering if I could pop the Akai onto my Sony.

Are you sure that the Akai remotes you have are RM16 and not RC-16 type? The reason I ask is I was unable to find and information on an Akai RM16 remote.

Your question reminded me of this earlier thread:

My bad. Yes. RC16. Have no idea why RM16 is stuck in my head. It was late. The plugs look the same as do the controls. I caught a thread over on AK about TEAC and SONY remote compatibility. Wondering the same about the Akai as I have no pin out on the SONY.

I originally had no idea what that small red button was in the other post. Did get the 365 cleaned up and still like that deck.

Not plugging anything in until I figure out the pin out on the SONY remote.

Thanks, dhnash.
Compared to the pin out for an Akai GX-365. A little dissimilarity there. Concluding the two remotes are NOT compatible.
