ACOM 1200S

I am about to order my first-ever amplifier - an Acom 1200S.  I have looked through the various community questions regarding Acom amplifiers but not been able to find a really definitive answer to my question.
I have a Flex6700 (v.2.49) and want to interface it with the Acom 1200s which in turn will be connected to my PalStar HF-Auto ATU.  

What cables (if any!) do I need in order to make this all work automatically (and remotely).  I know that I will need a phono cable!  Do I need any special settings in the rig to switch the amp? Should I be connecting one of the USBs on the 6700 to the (so-called) RS-232 on the amplifier or should I rely on the auto-sensing?  If I should then what cable to I need?

What else do I need to know? Any caveats?

Thanks in advance and 73,

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your suggestion.  I have agreed a very good price for the Acom so think I will stick with that for the time being.  I also have some personal stuff (which I need not go into) with the owner of DXShop ...

Thanks again!  

David
