Default not so easy

I don't think the part slips on, the part broke off. You need to open up the amp and take another pic of the inside.

I bet its a 1 piece pcb mount connector where the outside conductor fell off, you have to replace the entire thing on the PCB.

Definitely, Digikey will have it for a couple dollars. If someone doesn't beat me to it, I'll post the part# or a link, or something, after I run some errands. Easy fix.

I go with lgreen--it'll be a monolithic assembly that solders directly to the PCB. In addition to Digikey, you might try Mouser. In cases where they stock the same thing as Digikey, Mouser is usually a little cheaper. Be aware, however, that both add a surcharge if your order is below $25 or so. Take a moment and try to think about other things that you might need so as to bump the total over that limit.

Digikey part

It's close but I don't think it's right, although these things do follow a standard. For one the jacks are oriented 90deg off. These might be a better match and a lot cheaper at $.40 each. These are from Steve at Apex Jr.. The pin spacing may be out but you should be able to jury rig them with a bit of bending. If you post a pic of your amp's guts I may be able to track down something closer. Once you have it apart measure the spacing between the pins and cross-reference with the datasheet. This should get you started, at least.

you can also try soldering the 'sleeve' to the lead it broke off from... but hooking up and removing tight connectors a few of times will most likely break it again.

Don't be afraid. Open it up and post a detailed pic of the inside piece, and look at digikey.com or mouser.com to find a replacement that fits, or we can help with that. You will probably see that its a unitary piece (as shown by the Illusus link) for all 4 RCA connectors. You will need to unsolder the old one and solder in the new one, replacing all four.
