All the SAVA you need
Info on Sony SA-VA Stereo Systems

To all SA-VA 15, 35, 100 owners.   In my previous post I was polling about the retrofit connectors and which way I should build the kits.

Well forget all of that.  I decided that it was just too cumbersome and went another route all together.  Check out the pic below.  I decided to ditch the kit idea all together and went back to the drawing board and I am currently working on a connector that will directly fit the systems.

What you are seeing is the first prototypes from the 3d printer.

Hey Guys,

Just making a quick post here to ask your opinion on something.

The SAVA 10 and 15 systems  have a small circuit board in the RH speaker.

Now developing the retrofit kits for these systems I can build it two ways.

So I figured I would ask you guys how you would want them built.

Option A: Is to provide two plugs that will hook to the existing speaker wires in the RH speaker.  Therefore making the little circuit board pictured above obsolete.
                   (Note SAVA 10 owners will have to replace the 2 pin connector also on their systems because of the style of connector that sony used. Basically its soldered to the board, so you can’t unplug it. This will require crimping a new connector in to place, or I can make up a pig tail. )image (2)
 
Option B:  Is to unsolder the the large black connector on the small circuit board shown above and I will provide you with a new one in the kit to fit the new cable.
                   I will be able to build this cable cheaper than Option A just because its less parts and less labor. 
 

As I mentioned in the comments below, both solutions will require soldering, because you have to replace the factory connector on the amp in the LH speaker. (unless some one has an injection molding machine) A new replacement connector for the LH side will be included in the kit, along with a manual that shows how to install this kit into your stereo.

 

Thoughts, Questions, Concerns Post them in the Comments below.

Thanks,

I have cable and connectors for these units to build a retro fit kit.

Thanks,

Wow, its been a while since I have updated this blog but I am bringing good news today.

Long story short I have found a connector that will work for the SA-VA 10 and 15 units.

It’s not a direct plug and play like the rest of my cables, you will have to remove the old connector on the LH side

and solder the new connector in place.  The RH side did yield itself to be a little more user-friendly and is a plug-in connection to the internal speaker connectors.

I have a SA-VA 15 unit in-house to develop this kit on, so its ready to go. But Sony changed the wiring and connectors on the SA-VA 10 units, and this has provided me with a little snag.  Therefore, if you own a SA-VA 10 unit and have a screwdriver and a digital camera please contact me.

I know many of you have been waiting for me to find these connectors.

Well, there is good new and bad news.  I have found them, the problem is they have been discontinued (According to the West coast office). If you call the East coast office they tell you the tooling has been destroyed and give you some big run around. I have been dealing with these clowns for over four months trying to get the correct parts quoted.

So here is all the information I have obtained.

Let the phone start ringing.  Maybe if enough people call they will be forced to take action.

Thanks for your understanding

I am still working to try and identify a replacement for these connectors. Apparently, the company has discontinued the connector and I cannot get any specification on it to cross reference it.

Don’t worry I have a plan B, it just needs a little refining.

How many people are interested in a cable for one of these units?

Hello to all,

Would there be interest in extension cables to lengthen the factory cable for the SA-VA units?

Please post your replys below,

Thanks
