Tom, Bob, et al.

Much appreciated and good eye! I was hoping there might be a source for a generic plastic connector that would fit reasonably well.

I'll light up my brain, get crazy with the cheese wiz and make something up.

Thanks again everyone, you guys are terrific!

DD

The piece I need is the external clip connector that attaches to the unit for the purpose of making my own custom cable.

Hi DD,

If, as now suspected, this is a proprietary connector format of Sony's, I doubt that you will be able to source a bare connector for this, unfortunately.

I have come across this situation before with other makers connectors (although fortunately not very often) and the manufacturers don't make spare connectors available, usually. This is most likely to ensure that you don't muck about with their precious equipment, and/or to force you into purchasing a complete cable assembly from them.
Again assuming that it really is a Sony 'special', if this connector format takes off and other manufacturers start using it, which sometimes happens, spare generic connectors probably will be marketed, but this might be some time into the future.

Unless you are lucky to find someone with an unwanted cable, you will possibly have little alternative other than to buy a complete cable and modify it (as I suggested) for your purposes.

Incidentally, who is "al" ? (Tom, Bob, et al.)

Regards,

If it is an analog connector remove it and replace it with a standard HD-15 or db-x computer connector then you can roll your own cables.

OR just put another connector in parallel on the side.

et al means "and others"

I do have the stock cord but in order to do the modifications I want,
it won't avail. That's why I'm looking for a generic connector to fit.

I found this... http://dogbreath.de/PS1/AVout/AVout.html
and will try improve upon the idea.

I'm rather in awe as to how good this little unit sounds.

The wink indicates that he is joking.

Anyway, tip for next time, you might want to put the name of the product of the connector that you are looking for in the title.

enjoy
